Our Process

Praxis works a little different than most insurance Brokerages. We don't just shop for plans for you to pick from and hope for the best.

We begin with a free initial analysis and consultation to determine where your business is today, potential solutions to your challenges and whether we are a fit to work together. At Praxis we want to work with employers and plan managers that are serious about changing the status quo to obtain better healthcare outcomes and lower insurance costs. 

From there, we'll brainstorm 3-5 potential solutions to help move you in the direction of your goals or help you overcome existing challenges. We will also explain our skills and expertise and if we are a fit you can choose to have us complete a no risk, in-depth evaluation to determine how to best meet your business objectives.

We've Got Time For You

Our team is excited to start brainstorming ideas for your benefits, HR, and Payroll needs. Lets set up a quick consultation with our expert analyst, inspire ideas, and learn how our process works.
