Your small business depends on your employees taking care of their mental and physical health. You can help support that by providing an Employee Assistance Program included with their health insurance.

When you’re a small business owner, your time is valuable. To simplify the selection and reduce the cost of your group benefits package, at SBIS we offer GMS Group Advantage, a health and dental plan specifically designed and attractively priced for small businesses with 3 to 10 employees.

Your GMS Group Advantage coverage can be as comprehensive and affordable as you like – simply choose the health and/or dental plan that best suits your needs and calculate your monthly premium. No need to wait for a quote! Best of all, Group Advantage plans are designed with premium stability in mind, which means you won’t see a big premium hike when your plan renews.

Choose from Silver, Gold and Platinum health plans to cover health, vision and prescription drugs and add on dental care for services ranging from routine and basic services, to major procedures and orthodontic services.

Every GMS Group Advantage Plan includes the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP)

To help you make wellness a priority, here is what EFAP provides to your employees:
