Our Company

Insurance is our only business. Affinity groups are our only clients, and we’ve managed insurance programs for some of them for four decades. We are passionate about service, and design all of our products and procedures in the best interests of our customers.

We design, sell, and manage specialty insurance programs, endorsed by organizations exclusively for members and their families. As experienced administrators, we’ve combined decades of insurance knowledge with cutting-edge product and marketing innovations. Insurance is still our only business, but we’ve taken it in many new directions.

Since 2004, we’ve more than doubled in size and quadrupled our benefits and services. We’re extremely proud that our growth has been 100% organic, not through outside funding, merger, or acquisition, so we’ve been able to maintain the continuity and personal attention our clients and customers have come to expect.
