Carl Schuessler is the Founder and Managing Principal of Mitigate Partners, a Risk Management, Cost Containment and Employee Benefits Consulting firm, which is a partnership of 29 employee benefit consulting and brokerage firms that allow local management within a collaborative environment with more than 150 years of combined experience.

We are an intentionally small “concierge” consulting firm offering a unique approach to benefits management for a select group of clients. 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.

In 2017, Carl was selected as one of the first group of 30 forward-leaning Benefits Advisors in the U.S. to participate as a Charter Member in the Certification Program for Benefits Advisors. The Health Rosetta is a blueprint of best practices for intelligently purchasing health benefits that have been sourced from the most forward-leaning benefits purchasers of all types around the country. The Health Rosetta Accredited Advisor Program is an exclusive ecosystem of healthcare advisors who have illustrated exceptional transparency, innovation, and execution in the areas of risk management, employee benefits, and high-performance plan design. The certification program helps ensure we stay at the forefront of cutting edge ideas in the market to better serve his clients.

With more than 30 years of experience in benefits consulting and financial services, Carl pioneered the fiduciary approach to benefits advisory services. His interest in treating the employer’s money like his own led Carl through years of research culminating in the development of his proprietary FairCo$t Health Plan, an innovative plan design seamlessly integrated with a High-Performance Healthcare Solutions platform that provides best-in-class benefits at substantially lower costs while improving clinical and financial outcomes for health plans and their members.

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 150 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.

Carl has successfully networked with other trusted partners/vendors such as insurance companies, PBM’s, TPA’s, health care destinations, employee benefit communication companies, and onsite clinics. To the delight of his clients, he has 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. Carl is an employer advocate and provides easily understood solutions and encouragement to employers.

A founding Health Rosetta Charter Certified Advisor, Carl’s work as a consultant has been nationally recognized as he is a highly accomplished speaker and author who is engaged in the pursuit of EMPLOYER-BUILT Healthcare to replace the archaic Insurer-Built Healthcare system that has ceased to meet the needs of employers and their employees.

Carl is a native of Macon, Georgia, moved to Atlanta in 1989, and resides there with his wife, Missy, and their three children, Mary May (21), Carl III (20), and Hattie (17). He enjoys children’s activities (coached 43 of his children’s teams), fly fishing, golfing, hiking, and hunting
