It all started with four local government groups in 1991.


Recognizing the effectiveness of group purchasing, Benecon pioneered self-funded consortiums and cooperatives.  Today, we’re proud to manage fourteen programs across the country and maintain membership retention of more than 98%.  With our full Suite of Services, Benecon is able to provide unlimited expert support through Actuarial, Compliance, Finance and the Producer Services Divisions.  With the unparalleled Nurse Navigation and Wellness Services of our sister company, ConnectCare3, Benecon is a powerhouse in the self-insurance marketplace.
