I have worked with Virginia and Benefit Plan Consultants for well over 20 years. I have always felt completely confident with their knowledge with regards to any types of questions that arose (claims or benefits). Working with Virginia makes it so I don’t have to worry about that element of my job.

We have had the pleasure of working with Benefit Plan Consultants for the past 20+ years. With constant rising health care costs, as a small business we are always looking for innovative ideas for our group. Virginia was instrumental in implementing our HSA plan when it was first introduced to the market. The HSA allows healthy members options in addition to the standard medical care. Our physicians have embraced this type of plan.

When an employee leaves, Virginia will take the time to assess the individual’s needs and help them with their available options. We meet annually to brainstorm about new ideas, issues and receive prompt, courteous responses. BPC meets all our needs and expectations, and we consider Virginia and Stephanie friends as well.

Let me take this opportunity to thank you for all your efforts for many years that have enabled the health insurance provided to our company and for my family to be of the highest quality and the lowest cost possible. You have always been readily available to answer all our questions and have created the best solution to some very difficult situations. You are a true professional.

When I could not find an inexpensive Health Insurance Program (because of pre-existing conditions), the folks at BPC went to work
and found coverage. They worked long and hard to give me the security I needed.

It has been my privilege to have retained the consulting services of Virginia Swanson who is the principal of Benefit Plan Consultants. I have found her to be accurate, organized, knowledgeable, and user friendly. Her scope of practice is broad enough to serve my corporate needs and while her emphasis is health care, I recently have had her represent me on some other insurance related items. It is also helpful that she has a great referral network and is well respected in her industry.

It has been a pleasure to work with Benefit Plan Consultants. We have worked with Virginia Swanson for a number of years and during that time she has been a valuable resource. She has been extremely helpful in interfacing with PBT and has provided statistical data that has been useful in our decision making regarding employee health related benefits.

Health insurance is confusing and frustrating! Trying to determine deductibles, types of coverage, various plans to consider. Benefit Plan Consultants has made my selection of a plan very easy, taking ALL the frustration out of my decision. Their professionalism and expertise cannot be surpassed!
