Jet Professionals and PAMA Partner to Offer JP Benefits Connection

Teterboro, N.J. / June 28, 2011 – The Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) has selected Jet Professionals and its Benefits Connection program as the recommended employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm for its members and member companies. Benefits Connection assists small and mid-size business aviation companies in controlling and reducing employee health care costs.

Jet Professional’s health and benefits consulting practice works with the aviation business community to develop customized benefit solutions that drive employee engagement, promote responsibility and accountability, help participants manage their health risks and chronic conditions, and reduce health care cost.

“As health care costs rise, and legislative and economic changes alter the benefits landscape, the aviation community is seeking strategic, innovative and cost-efficient employee benefits solutions,” said George Kythreotis, managing director, Jet Professionals.

“We’re pleased to offer our membership access to Benefits Connection. As the only health and welfare brokers who are active members of the aviation community, Jet Professionals has a vested interest in our industry,” said Dale Forton, president, PAMA. “Jet Professionals offers a level of insight and understanding that other health care organizations can’t match.”

Additionally, for those aviation employers who qualify, Jet Professionals offers the Emcap Aviation Benefits Captive. EmCapTM is an employee benefit group captive solution which affords medium-sized employers access to alternative risk management techniques used by large employers to stem the rising cost of providing health care benefits to their employees. In partnership with Berkley Accident and Health, LLC, Jet Professionals provides employers access to the risk management tools needed to take control of their health care costs while reducing the volatility associated with traditional self-funded health benefit plans. EmCap provides medium-sized employers with greater transparency and control over their health benefit plans which yields stability and the opportunity to reduce costs.
