Benefit from Our Experience

At the Chelko Consulting Group, we serve our clients’ benefit plan management needs and empower them with the tools and resources to out-manage their competition. We assist medical, life and disability plan managers in becoming high performers and guide them in ways to improve employee health and productivity.

For more than fifteen years, we’ve filled a significant gap in the marketplace – the gap between enormous, market-setting consulting firms and insurance company producers/brokers. The market has responded by its demand for our unique combination of depth, expertise and affordability. We continue to grow and to serve this marketplace by delivering independent, fact-based, validated and practical results at a fraction of the cost of higher-priced firms.

Services

We offer a broad range of services to organizations who want to understand and actively manage the cost drivers within their health, life and disability plans.

Analytics

Numbers don’t lie. We believe in taking a deep dive into data to not only understand, but properly address the real cost drivers within plans.

Effective plan management doesn’t begin at enrollment or renewal time. It takes ongoing diligence and continuous process improvement.
