The Healthcare Breakfast Seminar will be an opportunity for the small business owner to learn more about HealthSource RI, our commercial exchange that lets employers design a comprehensive package that in turn allows the employees to choose the plan that meets their needs. The health, dental and ancillary products include some of the most cost-effective products offered in RI coupled with the unique defined contribution option allows employers to customize and manage their healthcare costs.

Here’s how  it works:

1. The employer decides how much to spend on health and dental
2. The employee chooses a plan from multiple health insurance companies
3.  They pay the difference between what  you pay and the cost of their plan
4. You write one check to HealthSource RI

In addition to health and dental, HealthSource now offers ancillary product offerings including

  • Vision insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Accident Insurance
  • Long Term Disability

These plans provide financial protection and peace of mind and may help save on healthcare premium costs.

The presentation will be an hour in length and will be followed by a brief question and answer session.

Take a few minutes out of your morning to join us for a healthy breakfast and learn more about exclusive benefits that help you attract and retain talented employees while managing your healthcare budget.

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (April 2, 2019) — Paquin Insurance Agency has joined OceanPoint’s growing organization in Rhode Island.  Agency Principal Rick Paquin has accepted a position as Vice President for OceanPoint, and he and his brother, Greg, will continue to serve the local community from their office in Tiverton.

Doug Mayhew, President, and CEO of OceanPoint Insurance, described the recent agreement as mutually beneficial for both agencies. “Clients have placed their trust in Paquin Insurance for over 50 years.
