We started a blog this year! See our latest blog posts: Level-Funded Pros and Cons and Self-Funded vs. Fully Insured for our breakdown of these different plan structures.

Product Updates

We have launched the web-based versions of two of our four desktop applications: ClarosPlan and ClarosRisk, which can be considered equivalent to Actuarial Assistant and Risk Decision Support, respectively. 

We are still working on translating our other software (Experience & Migration Predictive, ClarosReserve) to the web. Our team is hard at work testing, updating, and improving our programs to ensure that the transition from desktop to web is as seamless as possible for our legacy application clients.
