CoBiz Insurance Overview

Improving the health of your people...and your business

We have the experience and know-how to bring transformational change to your people and your company. Our proven technology, data analytics and personalized services can help you manage rising healthcare costs, stay compliant and keep your employees engaged and empowered all year long.

Our winning strategy starts with these three principles:

Know Your Numbers
We believe that wellness is not an option, it is a mission critical business priority and every employee has a role. That's why we teach employees to use your company's health plan proactively for prevention and early detection.

Don't Get Worse
A longer high claim list correlates consistently to poorer plan performance, translating into challenging renewals. While we cannot eliminate high claims altogether, we can make a meaningful impact by changing unhealthy behavior through education and engagement.

Create a Culture of Health
By investing in health, prevention and early detection, we can help your company achieve sustainable pricing and optimal employee health.
