In February of 2007, EBA incorporated and began the process of transforming their benefits advisor firm into an agency that is consultative, strategic and technology driven. Ten years later in the Summer of 2017, John Humkey and the EBA team became one of the first of 30 charter benefit advisors who adopted the Health Rosetta principals.
Our consultative process, Thrive, is focused on identifying opportunity for improvement, providing actionable recommendations and implementing solutions with desired outcomes.
