We work for you.

MEA is the region’s only member-based association dedicated to serving small- to mid-sized businesses. We work for our members, meaning we put your needs—not our products—first.

Our employee benefits team has an average of 15 years of experience managing, planning and assessing benefit programs. We deliver the same high-quality consulting services to smaller organizations that are typically reserved for much larger businesses.

The full package.

MEA benefits consultants first look at your benefits program from a holistic perspective. We assess your company’s financial position, culture, competitive position in retention and recruiting, business objectives, and employees’ needs. We then benchmark your plans to market, allowing you to maximize your package and avoid excess costs.

Additionally, we provide ongoing compliance assistance with state and federal government regulations that apply to employee benefits programs. These include COBRA, HIPAA, TEFRA/DEFRA, Medicare, ERISA, Section 125/Cafeteria Plans, healthcare reform and more.

Our focus on people.

MEA consultants provide their contact information directly to your employees. By handling employees’ questions, billing discrepancies and resolving complicated claims issues, we save you—and them—time, misunderstandings and frustration. And because some employees can’t contact us during regular business hours, we provide our mobile numbers and encourage them to call us after hours whenever they need assistance.

Further, we provide education to your employees through customized open enrollment meetings. We’ll meet with employees one-on-one to assist them with their benefits decisions and questions.

At MEA, your company is our concern. We’re service-driven, not sales-driven—whether you have two or 200 employees, we’ll always deliver the highest level of care to them and to you.
