INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, Oct. 29, 2012 – United Benefit Advisors, one of the nation's leading employee benefits advisory organizations, has launched its first national blog. The UBA blog is targeted at employers, and aims to provide tips and tools to effectively manage employee benefits. Featured content will include information on such important topics as PPACA compliance, health care reform, and private exchanges, as well as offer exclusive information from UBA’s Health Plan survey data. The UBA blog will announce timely webinars with UBA CEO Thom Mangan as well as the many industry leading experts that make up UBA’s 140 premiere independent benefit advisory firms.

“With health care reform law, employee benefits decisions are becoming increasingly difficult. We feel this is the right time to take our employer education tools to a broader distribution in the human resource sectors we serve, and hope our blog will provide value to our various audiences including employers, HR professionals, brokers, and even our own member firms. Because of our unique structure with more than 200 member firms serving 17,000 employers, we have a vast pool of expertise to draw from and incredible opportunity to all learn from one another.”

The UBA blog is the number one source for help benchmarking employer health plans. UBA’s 2012 Health Plan Survey, the largest and most comprehensive bench-marking survey of employer health plan design and cost available, helps companies of all sizes compare their plans to industry and regional competitors—and make the most effective plan design adjustments to control costs.

The blog will be updated two or three times each week and can be viewed on the web at: blog.ubabenefits.com where you can also sign-up to receive it directly via email or RSS feed.
