Executives are often granted generous compensation packages in an increasingly competitive field. BeniComp Select Executive Medical Reimbursement protects key employees from out-of-pocket medical, dental, vision, and hearing expenses that are not covered by most company’s regular health care programs.
BeniComp Select's creative health compensation
solution is perfect for executives.
Here’s how it works.
Let's assume the company is a law firm. If every lawyer at the firm has a $6,000 deductible on their base health plan, the firm can offer a $10,000 BeniComp Select plan to each lawyer resulting in no out-of-pocket deductible expenses plus $4,000 to spend on additional medical expenses such as dental, vision, chiropractic, and other services not usually covered by traditional plans.
Additionally, every one of the BeniComp Select claims is tax deductible. The average lawyer makes over $150,000/yr. Assuming a lawyer is at least in the 33% tax bracket, the lawyer would experience over $3,300 in savings on $10,000 in claim spend.
Larger firms typically setup classes. Rather than reward all employees at a company, the employer is able to reward individual employees or groups of employees by class. For example, a law firm could setup three classes:
- $50,000 policies for senior partners
- $20,000 policies for junior partners
- $10,000 policies for associates

An employee breaks his leg and the total medical cost is $15,000. He has a $6,000 base plan deductible that would otherwise be out-of-pocket, and the rest is covered by the base plan. The employee pays the claim and submits the $6,000 out-of-pocket claim to BeniComp Select. BeniComp Select invoices the employer $6,600 (claims + 11%). BeniComp Select immediately reimburses the employee $6,000 once the employer payment is received.
