    An Employee Benefits Case Study: Educational Services

    SWBC Employee Benefits Consulting Group (EBCG) provides innovative, cost-saving employee benefits and wellness programs to our clients. Keep reading to learn how one of my clients in the educational services industry benefited from SWBC’s comprehensive benefits consulting and brokerage services.

    The Challenge

    A San Antonio school district with just over 2,000 employees was struggling under the weight of the rising cost of medical claims by their insured employees.

    The Solution

    We developed a custom-branded wellness program for the school district. Wellness programs, when developed with the organization and their employees in mind, can lead to a healthier workforce, which can reduce medical claims. The school district’s custom-developed wellness program included:

    • Biometric Screenings
    • Flu-Shot Clinics
    • A Mammography Bus
    • 5K Run/Walk
    • Health Fair
    • Disease Management
    • On-site Health Coaching

    The Results

    The school district experienced a significant reduction in claims expenses over four years. When they began working with us in 2016, their claims expenses were over $12 million. In 2020, they dropped to right under $8 million. Likewise, their loss ratio dropped from 129.3% in 2016 to 89.3% in 2020.

    • $4.4 million decrease in claims expenses over a 4-year period
    • A 40% improvement in loss ratio over a 4-year period
