September is Life Insurance Awareness Month – it’s a prime time to be reminded of the extraordinary value provided by ancillary group benefits including life, disability, accident, critical illness and hospital indemnity insurance. For employers, each of these essential coverages increases employee peace of mind by increasing financial security and enhancing employee satisfaction.
In 2020, an unprecedented year complicated by COVID-19 and the resulting impact on our economy, ancillary group benefits are even more important for assisting employers in caring for and protecting their employees. As an Arkansas employer of 300 dedicated teammates, USAble Life is committed to maintaining a safe work environment with an engaged workforce that will continue to provide outstanding support to other employers across Arkansas.
USAble Life remains committed to our mission:
Through valued partnerships, like the one that we have with Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, we deliver ancillary insurance products and services that make a meaningful difference to our customers when they need us the most.
Our insurance products provide financial support when employees or their beneficiaries need it the most – the day of a lost life, when disability occurs or when one of our ensured individuals experiences an accident, a critical illness or hospitalization. Every day, we deliver on the promise of those products with rapid and compassionate service that focuses on our customers.
We are proud to have served Arkansans for more than 40 years and look forward to supporting Arkansas businesses and their employees in the years to come.

The Robbi Davis Agency, Inc. is proud to serve as the sponsor of the 2020 Employers’ Benefit Guide to health insurance. The goal of this publication is to help business owners navigate the complicated world of employee benefit packages and make the right choice for their employees and for their business.
Now more than ever, it is vital for business owners to offer a competitive benefits package that includes an affordable health insurance plan offering the benefits desperately needed at this time. Group health insurance coverage provided to employees by employers represents a significant part of the American health insurance landscape and is an important benefit for attracting the best and brightest workforce.
I hope that you find this employers’ benefit guide helpful as you enter the open enrollment season for employee benefits. Offering benefits that are valuable to employees and their families at an affordable rate to both the employee and employer is possible. However, it may take some creativity and thinking outside the box.
I encourage you to contact a local insurance broker to assist you with this process. You will want to be sure that the broker you choose is experienced in the local market, has a proven track record and has an outstanding reputation for service. It is also important to choose an agency that has an online enrollment platform so that employee enrollment and education can be performed remotely as needed during the pandemic.
Did you know that if your employer group has two to 50 employees, there is no additional charge to use the expertise of an insurance broker? For mid-size and larger employers, the service fees can be negotiated and can vary greatly between agencies.
I wish you the best as you explore health insurance options for 2021!
President, Robbi Davis Agency
