Insurance Office of America Broker Spencer R. Allen, Jr. Recognized as a 2021 Employee Benefits Power Broker
Spencer R. Allen Jr., Senior Vice President, Partner, National Advisory Board, Insurance Office of America
Spencer Allen’s practice focuses on the mid-to-large “unbundled” partially self-funded market segment where he and his team use best-in-class service providers to reduce plan spend while adding value for members.
Using this approach, Allen continually searches for creative, progressive and risk-management-type solutions to manage clients’ health care supply chain.
“Spencer always brings new and innovative solutions to the table that help reduce the overall cost of our plan, while also offering cost savings to our employees and members,” said Kathy Lambert, human resource director at Cherokee County Board of Commissioners.
“In the past few years we have implemented Surgery Plus, Know the Costs, ScriptSourcing and Teladoc. These programs have been very successful and popular with our employees. Spencer is always on top of any new products available in the market that may help reduce costs for both the plan and the members, while not sacrificing benefits.”
Allen proves that he understands the nuances of his clients’ businesses and their unique needs.
“He knows our company, our leadership, our workforce, our culture and our plans,” said Michael Taylor, benefits manager at The Georgia Ports Authority.
“Spencer particularly helped us with the WeCare solution that he brought to us to help our employees and to help our medical plan. There is no way we could have come up with a solution like this on our own, or any of the other brokers available.”
