I have been working with several of our vendors (elevator company, copier company, law book company, etc.) the past two weeks regarding "issues", i.e. problems. It is so refreshing to experience a company like Benefits by Design that is so professional, responsive and knowledgeable. You make my job MUCH easier!!! Thank you to Brenda, Ryan and Kristine for being so "on the ball" consistently!!!

Kristine and Benefits By Design have been handling our group benefits for the past several years. They are all very friendly and helpful. With having to deal with the provider side in dealing with insurance companies, it’s nice to not have to worry about dealing with them for our group benefits – I can just contact them and they take care of it for me. I appreciate your knowledge and expertise and refer anyone that asks me about benefits to Benefits By Design!

I was in business for 15 years without a health insurance plan for my employees. When Benefits by Design wanted to come by and talk to me about their services I was very reluctant. Over the years it has always seemed to be a waste of time to look at health insurance options. The plans I have looked at were either some no name company or out of reach financially. To my surprise, Benefits by Design put together a proposal that dispelled all of my past beliefs! The plan they put together was with a major carrier, the benefits were great, and the price was a lot less than ever expected. Since the initial policy 4 years ago, Benefits by Design has done a great job reviewing the coverage and costs every year, and advising me on the best options. I would not want to do this on my own, it is way too time consuming, and not to mention, confusing. If it weren't for Benefits by Design I would not have a health insurance plan for my employees. And let’s not forget the most important part of this - having health insurance for my employees has given my company a lot more credibility. It has allowed me to attract and retain much better employees than in the past.

“Benefits by Design” is meticulous about asking the right questions, listening, and being sensitive to the needs of Bridgit and our staff. Their professional ability and credentials set them apart. Our phone calls and emails are promptly returned. Simply, their service approach puts “clients first”! That is or should be their trademark.

Having Benefits by Design as our benefits consultant is one of the best decisions we have made. They handle all of my employees’ questions, make sure we get the best option for our needs and respond in a timely manner. I can’t imagine why a business would choose anyone other than Kristine and her team!

I have a small medical practice, and have worked with Benefits by Design for several years to do employee health plans. They've always been very helpful and responsive, with a good understanding of my needs. I highly recommend them.

My experience with Benefits By Design was so easy and rewarding, that I referred two other people who have enjoyed the same excellent customer service, attention to detail and follow-up. I greatly appreciated the choices they presented to me for my health care, and I'm happy to have BBD in my corner.

Benefits By Design is so much more than a benefits broker for my company.  They have really become an extension of our Human Resources Department.  I take great comfort knowing they are not only there for me as the HR Manager but for our employees as well.  They are an A+ member of our team.

Our experience with Benefits by Design has been a long term (since conception by Kristine of Benefits by Design) and satisfying relationship.

There has never been a time when I couldn’t call or e-mail our account manager with a problem or an issue and get a rapid response and prompt assistance. They always know who to call or what needs to be done to resolve a problem in a timely manner.

Kristine has done a great job in finding the best most affordable insurance plans for our company and has never tried to get us to settle for less – Kristine watches out for our company as if it were her own.

Thank you Benefits By Design Team,

I personally experienced comprehensive and valuable services from Benefits By Design.   They professionally handled the health care package needs of me and other employees of Patrick Motorsports of Phoenix.  I found a great sense of security knowing that I had a great benefits package and the team of professionals at Benefits By Design were always available to back it up!  Having since moved on to a new job, and losing my benefits, I needed to call on Benefits By Design again.   Once more, I was treated very professionally, now with a newer plan as a private plan member!  I want everyone to know I support and recommend dealing with the experts at the Benefits By Design team.  Thank You!

Brian Day of Phoenix



I was given the responsibility of identifying group insurance plans for my company back in 2006.  The process can be extremely frustrating without the proper help.  I contacted Kristine Kassel at Benefits by Design and the rest is history.  Kristine and her team took over the project and went out and identified the best insurance companies to handle the needs of myself and my employees.  They worked with our company and staff to ensure that all the required forms were completed and worked with us until the process was complete and the right plan was approved. They set up meetings with our staff and explained the plan in detail.  Our company grew from 15 employees to over 40 in a short period of time and the growth was handled without an issue.  In the three and a half years we have never experienced an issue that could not be resolved.  Besides the standard challenges that arise when dealing with large insurance companies, the most rewarding aspect to the relationship with Benefits by Design was when an employee needed help or did not understand the coverage.  In each of the cases, a team member from Benefits by Design walked the employee through the process and explained the benefits. 

I would highly recommend Benefit by Design to any company needing group or individual insurance.  The service is second to none.
