Welcome To EmSpring Corporation

EmSpring™ Corporation's employee benefits brokerage services emphasize creative health insurance and employee benefit plans. We specialize in self-funded medical coverage plans, helping our Pacific Northwest (Washington State, Oregon or Idaho) employer clients design ACA-compliant employee benefit plans that attract and retain the best employees. A good employee benefits strategy costs less than employer penalties related to non-compliance with Health Care Reform's plan requirements.

We go beyond employee benefits, providing an HR Help Desk, HRIS & Payroll Technology, HR Consulting and online Compliance tools that help you stay on top of day-to-day HR and Benefits responsibilities, plus strategically plan for the future. Our EmSpring Benefits Marketplace is an online private exchange solution that allows employers to contribute a flat dollar amount to their employees health plans while also offering more health plan and employee benefit options.

If you're a Washington State, Oregon or Idaho employer, let's talk. As your employee benefits broker-of-record, we'll work with you to design an employee benefits plan that meets your needs.

Employee benefits, and particularly health, life, disability and retirement benefits are unlike anything else people purchase and manage. Employee benefit plans that employers offer not only have a direct and often profound effect on the lives of employees and their families, they make a significant statement about the philosophy and culture of every employer organization. The advent of the Affordable Care Act hasn't changed that.
