Allied Benefit Suite
Offer your small group (2-99) clients a suite of high-quality carriers and employee benefits under one convenient program through Allied Benefit Suite (ABS). ABS combines the popular Delta Dental Small Business Program, with the choice of VSP, life and long-term disability (LTD) coverage, and a personal protection plan.

The life and LTD coverage is from AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company. The Alliance Personal Protection Plan includes Teledoc, Legal Club, Global Emergency Services and CyberScout Identity Resolution Services.

The program is easy. One single administrator. Delta Dental and VSP enrollment need not match. There’s a single application, a single invoice and you have the option of list enrollment. No administrative fee. Broker commissions are a flat 10% for all lines of coverage. Learn more.

Effective immediately, UnitedHealthcare has updated its small group guidelines to enforce California and Federal common law employee requirements. Going forward, similar to other carriers in the market, UnitedHealthcare will no longer accept 1099 contractors as benefit eligible.

With the passage of AB5, many workers previously categorized as independent contractors will now be considered common law employees and as such may qualify for coverage under standard U/W eligibility.

To review the best options for any of your groups with 1099 coverage, contact us at 800.696.4543 or
