The Phia Group Announces the Continued Offering of Free Health Benefits to Employees and Their Families in 2021

For Immediate Release

November 13, 2020

Canton, MA – In 2020, The Phia Group, LLC shocked the industry by announcing their intent to cover the entire cost of health benefits for their employees and families.  Now, The Phia Group is pleased to announce that it will – in 2021 – continue to offer these no-cost benefits to employees and their families. 

“This past year has been difficult for everyone.  Between the pandemic, politics, and a complete lack of predictability, the one thing we don’t want our people to worry about is the cost of maintaining their own, and their families’ health,” remarked The Phia Group’s CEO, Adam V. Russo, Esq.  “When we first implemented this program a year ago, our primary goal was to make health care more affordable for our team members – and we accomplished that mission; but that victory is almost outweighed by the residual benefits.  Recruitment of the best talent has been substantially bolstered by this unrivaled benefit, retention of existing talent has never been better, and employee morale is up, despite the 2020 roller coaster.  Not to mention how highly the company is now held in our employees’ spouses’ esteem – which is, of course, the true benchmark of success.”

Employees who have been in enrolled in The Phia Group’s self-funded health benefit plan for a fixed number of years will, upon renewing enrollment in 2021, have their contributions paid for by The Phia Group – including coverage for dependents.  This remarkable achievement continues to be made possible thanks to the application and utilization of cost containment measures developed and provided by The Phia Group, combined with proactive efforts on the part of its own plan membership to be cost-conscious “consumers” of healthcare.

Ron E. Peck, Esq., Executive Vice President and General Counsel of The Phia Group explained, “2020 was going to be an experiment for us.  We asked whether, by combining plan-based cost-containment efforts with member education, could we keep health care expenses at a level our plan could afford without shifting the burden onto our plan members and their families.  The answer is ‘yes’.”

“We are very proud to be able to offer our employees and their families the types of benefits you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else, and at the same time act as living proof that we can empower plans.” Adam concluded.
