Welcome To EmSpring Corporation

EmSpring™ Corporation's employee benefits brokerage services are about helping employers create employee benefit plans that help you attract and keep the best employees. Our clients are small business employers with as few as 20 covered lives, on up to large employers with multiple locations.

We specialize in self-funded medical coverage plans, and helping Washington, Oregon and Idaho employers design ACA-compliant employee benefit plans. If you’re an EmSpring benefits client whose employees have coverage through your fully-insured or self-funded health plan, then you can breathe easily; they have qualifying health coverage.

Do you need more than employee benefits from your benefits advisor? Perfect! We go beyond employee benefits, with an on-staff professional HR consultant to help with everything from employee handbook updates to choosing HR and payroll technology, and an HR HelpDesk to support your HR department. As an EmSpring client, you get exclusive access to an award-winning online HR and benefits resource center with everything from HRCI accredited webinars to training videos and downloadable forms, employee communications and templates. Trying to stay on top of regulations? Our online Compliance tool is easy-to-use and keeps you on track.

If you're a Washington State, Oregon or Idaho employer, let's talk about your employee benefits strategy. As your employee benefits broker-of-record, we'll work with you to design a benefit plan that meets your needs now, and as healthcare coverage reform continues to evolve. Work with us and continue to make a positive statement about your company, with the right benefit plan for your employees.
