Employee Benefits Administration and Management
As a business owner, it’s crucial to keep and attract quality employees so you can continue to grow your business. Offering a quality benefits package is one of the best ways to retain and hire top talent. The only problem is that offering a quality benefits program is becoming increasingly expensive and takes too much of your time.
Whether your organization lacks an HR department or HR team or simply needs a resource to make more informed decisions about benefits management, GMS can help. Our benefits outsourcing services allow your company to offer competitive, cost-effective benefits while you focus on what you do best – running your business.
What Employee Benefits Can I Outsource Through GMS?
There are several parts that make up a comprehensive benefits package. As a professional employer organization, GMS works with employers to help them decide which benefits make the most sense for their business operations, employees, and bottom line. Our employee benefits outsourcing services include:
Group Health Insurance
Medical coverage is often a necessity for employees. GMS can help small businesses offer customized health insurance tailored to your needs. Our Master Health Plan gives our partners access to one of the largest national networks and saves an average of 24% on employee premiums and 21% for family premiums.
In addition, our experts can handle the responsibilities associated with health benefit administration so that you don’t have to. We manage everything from benefits enrollment to ongoing plan education through our proprietary technology and dedicated customer support.
Supplemental Insurance Plans
GMS can help businesses bolster their benefits with insurance plans that extend beyond group health coverage. Our supplemental offerings include:
- Dental and vision – we offer dental and vision plans from top providers with access to a large network of credentialed specialists.
- Life insurance – group life insurance options for employees, including supplemental policies and spousal coverage options.
- Disability – protection for employees against major medical events offered in a range of coverage levels
- Additional voluntary benefits – add more value to your benefits packages with accident, critical illness, pet, and pre-paid legal policies.
The effects of diabetes are costly for both employees and their employers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, diabetes cost U.S. businesses more than $300 billion due to medical care, absenteeism, and other challenges. That’s why GMS partners with businesses to provide diabetic management for their employees.
GMS works with One Drop to help employees transform their health and be more productive. This artificial intelligence-powered program provides online health data tracking, health coaching, and other resources to help employees develop healthier habits and limit the adverse effects of diabetes for both workers and your business.
Healthy weight loss benefits more than just your employees’ personal lives. Studies show that employees who are overweight and obese increase health care costs and have higher absentee rates. Metabolic wellness programs help businesses shed some of these extra costs by giving their employees the means to achieve healthy weight loss.
GMS partners with Activate Metabolics to provide employers with an effective, science-based program that crafts unique weight loss systems for employees. Our experts work with you and your employees to develop specific programs that make your workforce happier and healthier.
Retirement plans and profit-sharing programs reward employees for their hard work and show that you care about their future. Our human resources experts help employees take advantage of retirement accounts while allowing employers to reap the benefits of offering these benefits.
As a PEO, GMS can leverage greater group buying power to offer plan flexibility while cutting potential plan costs. Our benefits administration process also means that our team saves you time by handling plan management, audit, and other tasks. In short, we help you improve the employee experience while you enjoy the recruiting and tax benefits of offering 401(k) and profit-sharing plans.
Visiting the doctor isn’t always convenient for you or your employees, especially when the majority of consultations boil down to common conditions. Doctor’s visits take employees away from their work and lead to more copays and insurance claims. Telemedicine turns an inconvenient, costly experience into a benefit for employers and their employees.
Group Management Services helps employers offer Telehealth through Teladoc, providing eligible employees 24/7 access to free doctor consultations. Employees can use simple, online systems to connect with doctors on their own time, cutting down on travel time, waiting room visits, and costly copays that impact their bottom line.
How Does Benefits Administration Outsourcing Help My Business?
There are many benefits to partnering with a PEO for employee benefit administration:
Leave tedious benefits administration tasks to the experts. We administer the plans on your behalf so that you can focus on what you do best.
GMS helps your benefits package compete with bigger organizations. We give your company greater buying power through economies of scale.
Simplified employee management
Outsourcing your employee benefits management to multiple vendors gets complicated. With GMS, you have one point of contact for all your administrative needs.

Organizations that aren’t leveraging a PEO or online benefits platform are likely wasting valuable time and energy.
