Proposal Enhancements:
Dental and Vision Contribution Worksheets

We have enhanced our proposal service to include new worksheets to model employer contribution strategies for dental and vision coverage. Starting now you can provide clients with proposals showing employer contributions that are:

  • A percentage of all plans.
  • A percentage of a base plan.
  • A dollar value towards all plans.

The new features are available now when you log into PRISM (our no-cost) proposal service or when our expert quoting team develops proposals for you. Learn more about these new proposal enhancements.
