One of the great things about these contracts and vendors is they walk employers through the process from start-to-finish. Not only do they provide outstanding coverage, but they also offer the necessary education, service, and support.

COVID-19 Update: As we navigate and monitor COVID-19, our staff and awarded suppliers are committed to your health, safety, and uninterrupted access to Sourcewell services. If a supplier/ vendor has identified impacts to products or services, a COVID-19 update has been posted on their contract page.

 

You wouldn’t wait more than a year for a visit to the dentist. Shouldn’t your benefits plan get the same checkup?

Invest in your employees’ health and future with the help of products and services offered through Sourcewell’s Group Employee Benefits category. Three vendors were awarded contracts, providing group ancillary benefits and employer-sponsored voluntary benefits to Sourcewell members.

Manager of Insurance and Risk Management Solutions at Sourcewell, Ryan Donovan said this category provides services including life, short- and long-term disability, dental, vision, and critical illness coverage; employee assistance, and more.

“One of the great things about these contracts and vendors is they walk employers through the process from start-to-finish,” Donovan said. “Not only do they provide outstanding coverage, but they also offer the necessary education, service, and support.”

 

Following a competitive solicitation process, Sourcewell awarded these cooperative purchasing contracts:

Colonial Life | 030718-CLA
Group and individual voluntary benefits, supplemental insurance, benefit enrollment and administrative technology, flexible enrollment, employee engagement and benefit education, pre-tax employee benefit payments for tax savings, and nationwide service and support.

Sun Life Financial | 100319-SUN
Accident, critical illness, cancer, dental, disability, and life insurance; benefits administration.

These contracts are now available to all Sourcewell members throughout the United States. Purchasers from public entities save time and money by streamlining the procurement process with cooperative purchasing.
