The Everlong Difference (Part 3): Use Positive Peer Pressure to Your Advantage

The Everlong Difference (Part 3):

Use Positive Peer Pressure to Your Advantage

We’ve all heard that peer pressure is “bad” and although that’s arguably true, there is new research that indicates how positive peer pressure creates a social advantage. And within the field of behavioral economics, human behavior is explained as being shaped by certain influences like social pressure.

This intuitively makes sense, right? What if there was a better way to purchase group health insurance?

There is a better way. And it makes sense, too.

Within our high performance health insurance captives, there are no more than 50 members (employers) per cell. This means your client truly gets to know their fellow captive cell members over time and yes … feel a little positive peer pressure as their fellow captive members improve their plans and reduce their costs. This social dynamic is a powerful force elevating the performance of each cell. 

What makes for an ideal captive member?

  • 50 to 500 employees on the medical plan
  • Fully insured or self-funded (and tired of it)
  • Few decision makers
  • Innovative decision makers
  • Appetite for claim reduction initiatives

Members also network continuously throughout the year, providing each other with timely input on existing and potential claims reduction vendors and other invaluable insights. Each cell also determines the location and format of their Annual Member Meeting (most recently Park City, Utah).

Member cells are led and managed by a seasoned Everlong consultant that has incentive-based compensation tied to the financial performance of the cell.

For employers that are members of the Everlong Captive, they are able to reinvest the profits that health insurance carriers make back into their business.

Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears once said, “We are stronger together than we are alone.”

It’s with that same team spirit in mind, camaraderie, and positive peer pressure in practice that we embody within the Everlong Captive. Build in your advantage today. Become an Everlong Captive member.

The Everlong Difference (Part 2):

Give Your Clients the Benefit of Two Years

What if your clients could have the luxury of time (up to two years) on their side? Time to participate in a purpose-built high performance health insurance captive. Time to stop shopping for stop-loss coverage. Time to mitigate the wild fluctuations in stop-loss premium. Time to keep the … profit.

We call it our Brand Promise Guarantee.

Aside from being acquired, dropping below 50 employees on the plan, or going out of business, if your client leaves the program in the first two years, we’ll refund you 100% of our fees.

Welcome to a better way to purchase group health insurance.

Our founders were innovative benefits brokers, just like you and have reimagined and redesigned employer-based healthcare by building high performance health insurance captives designed with your clients’ financial, operational, and employee health outcome needs in mind.

Here are some of the benefits your clients can expect:

  • Lowest cost possible
  • Improved employee health
  • Full access to Springbuk platform
  • Membership owned (full passthrough transparency)

In addition to maximum transparency, we also maximize stability in the stop-loss premium.

Our 5-year average stop loss increase was only 3.9%. It’s likely your clients are experiencing the industry stop-loss trend that’s 4x-6x times higher.

As the industry evolves, consider what percentage of your book should be held in a captive.

It’s time to take action.

It’s time to bring your clients to Everlong and maximize their satisfaction.

The Everlong Difference (Part 1):

Group Health Insurance Is Broken and We’re Fixing It

The current system is broken. Traditional compensation models have misaligned incentives built in.

Consider for a moment how stop-loss insurance actually functions. The reality is stop-loss carriers are working for the benefit of their shareholders. Hospitals, carriers, and sub-par brokers are conflicted because they all gain when prices go up (which they have for the past two decades). You lose.

Hospital corporations and healthcare services companies have been steadily increasing prices … because they can. What if there was a better way to purchase group health insurance?

There is a better way.

Our founders were innovative benefits brokers, just like you.  They developed a truly independent and ethical solution by reimagining how employer-based healthcare gets done – for you, your clients, and even us.

By participating in our high performance health insurance captives your clients can expect:

  • No overrides of any kind from any carrier or vendor (our members come first)
  • Your clients receive their money immediately at the close of the year
  • Membership owned (full passthrough transparency)

And our incentives are fully aligned with you and your clients. We use a fee-based PEPM compensation model, which means we win when your client grows, not when their premium increases.


It’s time to stop shoveling money at the fully insured stop-loss carriers and instead pay as little as possible and keep the profits of what you do pay. Turn back the tide of ever-increasing medical insurance costs caused by lack of control and transparency.
