Consistent and frequent communication with employees is essential to attract and retain talented people and change behavior. Employees are able to make better-informed decisions regarding lifestyle choices and healthcare options when they have clear communication on topics such as health plan design, consumerism, pharmacy, health risk management, healthcare delivery, ancillary products, and technology.

Lockton Employee Communications and client service teams help you determine the appropriate mix of communications based on your plans, demographics, locations, etc., as well as implement a communication plan that outlines your goals and objectives.


Many factors have contributed toward increased risk for self-insured clients in recent years. Beyond the typical shifts in the market, a growing proliferation of high-cost claims, particularly claims exceeding $1 million, and the reinsurance market structure pose increased challenges for employers. In addition, recent healthcare reform measures have resulted in changes that can result in greater demands on a company’s budget.

Realizing traditional approaches to purchasing medical reinsurance were inefficient, we developed LDB’s exclusive Premium Stabilization Program; a three-year program which provides clients with reinsurance rate predictability and laser protection. LDB’s specialized team also delivers expanded policy management and placement services.

Additionally, the practice’s unique Complex Claims and Cost Containment Unit serves as a dedicated clinical resource, proactively monitoring high-cost claimants and employing clinical strategies to achieve claims savings.


The roles of culture, morale, and wellness are increasingly recognized for their wide-reaching influence on organizational effectiveness, mitigating employer risk, and their tangible impact on company performance.
