Fringe Benefit Group Rebrands as Framework Health Plan

March 24, 2008 ( - The Fringe Benefit Group, provider of group benefit plans designed for hourly and part-time workers, announced it has launched a branding campaign to support the new name of its limited medical insurance policy, the Framework Health Plan.

The Framework Health Plan is affordable, flexible, and easily administered, according to the announcement. Some of the limited benefit health plan’s features include: guaranteed issue (employees and their eligible dependents will not be denied coverage during open enrollment periods), no pre-existing condition limitations, customized enrollment forms, flexible billing technology that corresponds with an employer’s existing payroll cycle, and live customer service representatives.

Framework Health Plan also offers network re-pricing through First Health Network and Beechstreet Corporation, allowing insureds who visit an in-network doctor to pay the price that network has negotiated with the particular physician.

The Framework Health Plan is underwritten by Nationwide Specialty Health, part of Nationwide Insurance.

“The name Framework really appealed to us because we are providing the framework of benefits from which companies can build out their health plan. [It] was time for a new look and name that more closely relates to how we help people,” said Brian Robertson, executive vice president of Fringe Benefit Group, in the announcement.
