“The Best in Benefits award recognizes employers who offer the best benefit plans relative to their peers. Using plan designs, premiums, and contributions from employers in the Michigan Mid-Market Benefits Survey Results, the benefit value and cost for each plan is calculated using proprietary actuarial cost models. Plans are then ranked by the lowest cost-highest benefit metric to determine who is Best in Benefits.”
