Platinum Partner Spotlight: Five Points Benefits Solutions, LLC

Five Points is an employee benefits broker. They are independent and work for their clients, not a particular insurance company. They are specialized to the schools market, where they help you steward resources and “Do More with Less.” Their clients have dedicated, salary-based account managers and on-staff compliance and risk management resources available to them. In addition, they receive free access to solutions such as a proprietary state health plan, plan design, and school budget analysis tools, Affordable Care Act and OPEB liability resources, and benefits related technology through MyBenefitsChannel including online enrollment/benefits administration.

They consider it a privilege to do business with about 100 public sector clients in TN, the vast majority of which are schools including Jackson-Madison, Wilson, Murfreesboro City, Lebanon Special, Cheatham, Loudon, Greene, Clay, Chester, Crockett, Dyersburg, Gibson Special, Hawkins, Bradley, Obion, and Robertson districts.

"With the guidance and support of Five Points Benefits Solutions, we have been successful in maintaining high quality benefits for our employees at competitive prices. Five Points has served our group for over 3 years as an independent benefits broker. The tools they use to serve us, like MyBenefitsChannel, help us “do more with less,” a challenge to public sector employers like us. The dedicated account manager is a helpful extension of our internal staff for all areas of employee benefits.They have shown us they are committed to claims resolution, timely service, and regular communication. We appreciate the role they play in helping us provide employee benefits that attract and retain employees while achieving our budgetary goals. Even though we are on the state health plan, Five Points serves as our broker for dental and vision as well as voluntary benefits through USAble. We are pleased with our decision to purchase dental and vision through the private market, after Five Points competitively shopped, because we have saved money and increased the benefits. It’s a win for everyone."
