Health Plan Benchmarking
More Data, Better Data, Local Data, Relevant Data!!
Brought to you by  Gary R. Goodhile, CLU
Principal & Co-Owner, Sullivan Benefits
You have been looking for it, we have it and you are going to love it!  Let's face it, getting meaningful, local, health plan benchmarking data has always been a real challenge.  The national surveys have provided us with some data to evaluate, and something was certainly better than nothing but, it rarely was a truly meaningful local comparative sampling. 

We are pleased to inform you that Sullivan Benefits has been hard at work compiling some truly unique 2016 health plan data that is far more robust than anything we have previously provided (or seen in our market for that matter).  This new data is broken out by employer size, industry, area (New England, Massachusetts), plan type and much, much more.


Allergies: The Basics
Brought to you by Nan Maley
Director of Corporate Wellness, Sullivan Benefits
Allergies are negative reactions that occur as a result of coming into contact with a normally harmless substance. These substances, or allergens, can be inhaled, injected, ingested or even simply touched to cause reactions.

Allergy symptoms often go unrecognized.  You may falsely believe you have a cold or the flu, when really you are experiencing symptoms of an allergy.  While the symptoms are similar, allergies can be differentiated.  Common symptoms include sneezing, a stuffy nose and itchy, watery eyes.
Risk Factors

Allergies can develop at any age.  People who are most susceptible include those under age 40 who have at least one parent with allergies.  Allergies can change or disappear over time, while others may recur at the same time each year, lasting for a few weeks or months each time.
