Transparent Health Benefits

Join our mission to radically transform health benefits™

Our fresh approach to employee health benefits lowers cost by an average of 20% while increasing the quality of care

What We Do

The Academy brings together innovative solutions that helps companies offer higher quality benefits at a lower cost.

Is The Academy a health insurance company?
Well, sort of. The Academy is a network of expert employee benefits advisors who each serve as a consultant to companies like yours, enabling them to establish their own self-funded benefits programs. Think of The Academy as a proven guide through the process of benefits self funding.
What type of companies has The Academy helped?
The Academy's self-funding strategies have been implemented for companies of varying size and reach, including casino gaming corporations, municipal governments and financial services enterprise organizations. Employers of most any size will see immediate impact with The Academy.
Why haven't I heard of this before?
The truth is that The Academy's proven methods have been around for decades but the major insurers have proactively driven employers away from self-funding. Why? The answers to that question are too many to answer but it all comes down to cost savings for you and losses for the big insurers.
