Stirling Benefits Testimonials

“Stirling Benefits has really helped us. I feel like we are finally in control or our health benefits in terms of cost, awareness and options. Stirling’s’ transparent model allows us to see the cost drivers, which helps us to make plan changes as needed to keep our benefits employee centric. I strongly encourage you to consider Stirling Benefits. We debated for 3 years and consequently lost 3 years of putting ourselves in a better financial position.”

“Stirling Benefits offered us flexibility to design the most beneficial and cost effective benefits plan for our employees, and combined their knowledge and expertise to execute it well. Previously we had a series of insurance companies that we worked with. We switched them regularly due to rising costs. We stay with Stirling Benefits because they have been able to control our benefit costs to avoid double digit rate increases annually. We have been solicited many times, but see no value in switching from a winner. Stirling Benefits has a team of professionals. They deliver top notch service for the benefit of the company, but especially our employees.”

“We ran the math on the dental benefit plan looking at the claims versus the premium and found that we were paying $800 for a $1000 max limit. We decided to self-insure it to keep premiums down and increase our benefits. Stirling was instrumental in allowing us to cost effectively administer our plan. Year over Year our costs came in below our projected annualized budget! Additionally, Stirling Benefits does a great job of claims handling, payments, and general overview of our plan.

They are only TPA that we have used over the years but there is no need to switch. Stirling Benefits has been cost effective and efficient over the years. They have been nothing but professional and a great partner for us. I would not hesitate to recommend them. “

“Stirling Benefits has made offering dental benefits to our employees simple and efficient. To help reduce claim costs the Stirling account team suggested adding a network to our plan. This seamless change made a significant reduction in our claim costs. Stirling Benefits is willing to customize their plans and their processes to suit our needs. Their employees are easily accessible, extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They really care that the business and our employees are well taken care of, and are there to help us whenever we need them.”

“Stirling Benefits provides the kind of personalized service that you can’t find with other TPAs or carriers. We have never reached out to anyone at Stirling and not received a speedy, knowledgeable answer to our inquiries. No question is too small, no issue is too large – they handle it all with a friendly and efficient team. If you’ve been frustrated by your current carriers long hold times, or provision of incorrect information, you will be more than pleasantly surprised by Stirling’s team! They are thorough, detailed and extremely knowledgeable in all things benefits. We are totally satisfied!”

“Utilizing the expertise and services provided to us by Stirling Benefits and the partnership we have developed over the years is the biggest benefit for us. Everything from plan design for the upcoming 1 to 3 years to day-to-day employee concerns, Stirling is available and eager to assist us. We communicate daily with Stirling and each time we feel as though we are the only client they have, which make us as the employer, as well as the employees, very happy and confident we are receiving the best service possible. I have found during my 30+ year career and working with other TPA firms that the key performance indicators are accuracy, speed, and knowledge of the health care industry which includes trends and future initiatives. In all three (3) areas, Stirling exceeds what I have seen from other TPA’s. As a result, claims and questions are processed and associated issues addressed with minimal intervention from either me (employer) or the employee. This is true “value added” service and performance”
