What is a consortium?

A consortium is a group of organizations that have joined together for the advantages of economies of scale and cost efficiency. Each member financial organization can choose the benefit plan design and employee contribution structure that best suits its needs while paying its own rate. The rates are based on the financial institution’s demographics and historical claims experience.
