Finding a Better Way for Your Employee Benefits


By taking advantage of the significant purchasing power of the BSIA, members benefit from significant sustainable savings, by structurally lowering the insurer’s costs. Members are also able to secure higher benefit levels and more flexibility, again by leveraging the purchasing power of the Association. Each BSIA member is able to customize their plan to meet their unique needs.
