Doctor Explaining COBRA to patient

Compliant and Reliable COBRA Administration

Your solution for COBRA Administration

Keeping up with complex COBRA regulations is a hassle, and maintaining compliance with the law can easily be a full-time job. Costly mistakes may occur, especially when staff is overloaded because of laborious COBRA requirements. LABI offers COBRA administration at no cost to eligible members in order to assist you in running your core business.

Cafeteria Health Insurance Plans

Cafeteria Plan

Free flexible benefits program for eligible members

LABI provides a flexible benefit program that offers tax savings to both employers and employees.

A Cafeteria Plan, also referred to as Section 125 Plan, allows employees to set aside a portion of each paycheck – before paying taxes – to pay for premiums and qualified health care expenses not covered by insurance.


Advantages of a Flexible Benefits Program

Both employers and employees benefit from flexible benefits programs. One of the biggest benefits is tax savings. For instance, employers pay lower payroll taxes as a result of pre-tax payroll deductions. The more employees participating in the programs, the greater the payroll tax savings to the employer. In turn, employees lower their taxable income and increase their net take-home pay.
