This comprehensive program offers a range of valuable benefits aimed at improving the well-being of GAWDA members and their employees. By partnering with the Horton Group, GAWDA has designed a suite of coverage options that encompass dental, vision, life, voluntary life, short-term disability, and long-term disability insurance. 

We recognizes the importance of providing a comprehensive benefits program under one roof. Therefore, members also have the option to partner with Horton Group for assistance with their medical insurance, allowing you to consolidate their entire benefits program for greater convenience and efficiency.

Expanding Coverage Options: 

One of the key advantages of the Ancillary Benefits Program is its flexibility and customization. We understand that each member group has unique needs and preferences. Therefore, the program allows companies to choose from existing plan designs or tailor coverage to align with their specific requirements. Whether it’s enhancing dental care, improving vision coverage, or safeguarding employees’ financial future through life and disability insurance, GAWDA’s Ancillary Benefits Program offers a range of options to suit diverse organizational needs. 

Financial Benefits: 

In addition to the expanded coverage options, GAWDA members can enjoy significant financial advantages through the new program. Due to the group purchasing power of GAWDA, all lines of coverage receive a 10% reduction in rates (on what your paying now), ensuring cost savings for both employers and employees. These reduced rates deliver a compelling package of benefits to member organizations. Furthermore, GAWDA’s Ancillary Benefits Program offers rate guarantees, assuring stability and predictability in insurance costs for the duration of the coverage. 

Streamlined Benefits Administration: 

GAWDA recognizes the importance of efficient benefits administration for its members. To facilitate seamless management of the Ancillary Benefits Program, Horton Group has partnered with Employee Navigator to offer complimentary Benefits Administration Technology. This technology streamlines the enrollment, communication, and management processes, empowering GAWDA members to efficiently administer the program and enhance the employee experience.
