Last month I reached out to you about a new partnership that Stream Benefits Group has with HR360.  This is a state of the art human resources library.  HR360 acts as an online HR department, providing your company with the most current employment laws, downloadable forms, interactive tools and sample employee handbook.

If you haven’t taken the quick video tour, please do so at www.HR360.com/take-tour.html 

If you would like to access your online HR information library, please visit http://streambenefits.com/hr360.html  Please call the office for your login and password.

HR360 is a resource that I am providing to you and your firm just for allowing me to work with you on your insurance programs. I look forward to interacting with you in the future about this tool.

As we enter the 4th quarter of 2016, there are many group health insurance plans that will be coming up for renewal under the Grandfathered phase of the Affordable Care Act.  If you are one of those employer groups, all of the insurance carriers are allowing you to stay with your same plan for another year, if you so desire.  But this year, the insurance carriers are also offering the opportunity to keep your plan through December 31, 2017. 

As your renewal becomes available, I will be reaching out to you with all of your options.  Included in that is the possibility of moving into an ACA compliant plan.  Each group has different needs and characteristics, so it is important to work specifically on what that means for you and your employees.

Regards,
Scott

I am pleased to introduce the new look, updated website for Stream Benefits Group.  We have made it easier to navigate with revised pages and content. The product portfolio has been expanded, including a dedicated page to the Affordable Care Act. Go to www.streambenefits.com

And check out the testimonials, where a link to the client’s website provides easy access to their website and services.

Please let me know your thoughts regarding the new website.  And as always, thank you for allowing me to work with your on you insurance needs.

United Healthcare has recently announced that they will not be participating in the individual market Affordable Care Act plans, effective January 1, 2017.  This will affect many individuals in the St. Louis area, but only with individual plans.  This announcement does not have an impact on the small group plans that United Healthcare offers.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have on this subject.

Last year I announced that I was a candidate for mayor of the City of Kirkwood.  The election was held on April 5th.  Unfortunately, I did not win.  And though disappointed by the final results, I enjoyed the entire campaigning process.  I was very humbled by all of the volunteers that worked by my side during the past year.  I felt we ran a very positive campaign and had a very upbeat message.  Thank you to everyone that wished me well on this endeavor.  I will continue to stay involved with our community and work hard for you as your insurance broker.
Sincerely,

Scott Stream
