ABSTRACT
The article informs that with health-care insurance premiums continuing to rise at double-digit rates, employers continue to look for novel ways to hold down costs. Among these, according to benefit specialists, is associating with other, unrelated companies, thus securing volume discounts. The idea is not new, but can allow small employers to provide health benefits where they otherwise might not be able to. Kathy Gardner, group-benefits supervisor at Syracuse-based insurer Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Inc., says that her company has been bringing small companies together for two decades in order to lower their health-insurance costs.
