How our organization can help:

Michigan Planners organizational philosophy, in its simplest form, is to treat our clients in the same exact manner and method as we would want to be treated, if we were in their position. From plan design recommendations to plan rollout and open enrollment, to employer and employee service needs throughout the plan year, Michigan Planners is always a phone call, an email, or a text away from taking caring of our clients’ needs in a fast and friendly manner.

Michigan Planners has 4 client service teams, comprised of team members from each service department. Each service team has 6 team members, and each team services 50 to 80 corporate clients. The service team workloads are routinely assessed to ensure the highest level of service is offered to our clients, without compromise in timeliness or efficiency.

Michigan Planners client base falls largely within 25 to 200 full-time employees, with generous amounts of clients on both sides of this range as well. Our service model has been designed to fulfill the unique needs of clients within this size category, with specific attention to HR support, employee education, and claims service.
