Carl Schuessler Jr.
Managing Principal, Mitigate Partners, and BenefitStrategies, LLC
We are an intentionally small “concierge” consulting firm offering a unique approach to benefits management for a select group of clients. Mitigate Partners and BenefitStrategies provide Risk Management, Cost Containment, and Employee Benefits Consulting Services. We have chosen collaboration over competition and maintain healthy relationships with a cadre’ of like-minded consultants and resources throughout the United States. Being open to and encouraging the ideas of others allows us to remain on the cutting edge of thinking in our area of expertise, rather than developing the myopic view of the world that so often occurs in single-source benefit brokerage shops.
To the delight of our clients, we have a proven track record of bringing comprehensive High-Performance Healthcare Solutions to businesses regarding healthcare costs, benefit design, improved medical outcomes, and improved employee communications.
By serving as a Fiduciary and Steward of our client’s health plan dollars, and focusing on how to reduce the cost of healthcare (rather than the cost of insurance), we operate more as Population Health Managers rather than as “Brokers”, allowing our team to specialize in Cost Containment and Risk Mitigation strategies that result in dramatic reductions in the overall health plan spending of our clients. Our more than 100 years of combined experience in benefits planning, allows us to offer our clients improved cash flow, “employer-friendly health plans” and lower cost trends over time.
