Group Planners Inc. Overview

Building Better Benefits Together since 1997

Group Planners Inc is an insurance agency specializing in employee benefits, personal insurance products and compliance strategies

Employee benefits, especially group health insurance has changed dramatically over the past three decades.  What hasn't changed is our commitment to providing unmatched service, customer education and innovative product solutions that match your companies needs and those of your employees. 

Our #1 objective is to share what we have learned about the healthcare and health insurance industries and introduce our customers to the many tools and technologies that exist today that can help optimize cost while delivering the best quality and results.  Prescription and Medical price and quality transparency, as well as, advanced telemedicine with 125% ROI guarantee are just a few of the solutions that help our clients optimize their health insurance spending.

Our Self-Funded clients will be introduced to the 'TPA's of the Future' which are already here and helping large employers control costs, deliver state-of-the-art technology, reporting, and a better member experience.

GPI is committed to providing services beyond the typical insurance agency.  That's why our representatives strive to be an extension of your HR team.  Our Compliance Assessment Report helps identify areas that need improvement and then we help you implement practices to eliminate the risk. 

We look forward to the opportinuty to show you the GPI Difference.

I have been working with Lou and the team at Group Planners for over a decade. As human resource and benefits issues became more and more complicated, it was great to have the knowledgeable team at Group Planners in our corner. Lou and the team are always available and responsive to our needs, spending whatever time is necessary to answer our concerns.
