Experience a New Paradigm for Health Insurance
The Employers Health Risk Consortium
The EHRC is the small business solution to health insurance pricing problems.
When the ACA passed in 2010, many small businesses were faced with a problem they had no idea how to solve. In 2014, we launched a solution to their health insurance pricing problems, called the Employers Health Risk Consortium, or EHRC, with 14 small businesses, about 500 enrolled employees, and around 1000 total enrolled members based throughout Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.
What is the EHRC?
consortium: "\kən-ˈsȯr-sh(ē-)ə, -ˈsȯr-tē-ə\ also consortiums; an agreement, combination, or group (as of companies) formed to undertake an enterprise beyond the resources of any one member"
The Employers Health Risk Consortium is a collective that partners with organizations to help them navigate the insurance market as an entity greater than the sum of its parts. We help employers feel peace of mind through enabling them to have more control, experience transparency, and become more long-term goal oriented; all while assisting their employees with making better health care decisions.
The EHRC Today
Today the EHRC has expanded to include 75+ different small employers throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region who employ between 10-900+ people in a variety of industries, has 4400+ employees enrolled, and 7000+ total enrolled people.

"When we were starting, the figures Jonathan gave us out of the gate were a little higher than what we would have been paying if we stayed with our carrier, and we were going to be the first organization to go through with this new plan. My understanding was that we were going to pay a little more up front, but the benefit of knowing we get to 'bank' some of that money if we don’t spend it all and use it in the future, offset that 'risk' - and it paid off."
Todd Gardner, President of Glass & Metals

"There are two things about the EHRC that have made the biggest impact to Bryce. First of all, their open relationship with us has been something that we know cannot be bought. No matter how small or large the issue or question, there is always someone willing to help us. Second, the EHRC has gone above and beyond to make sure we stay in compliance, do not pay more than we should for any one claim, and they are always thinking ahead to continue to save program members money with each renewal."
Brandy Young, Finance & HR Director of Bryce Resort
