Alltrust Insurance, an employee benefits, and HR consulting firm based in Palm Harbor, FL announced Austin Brooks has joined as the Director of Pricing and Analytics.
In his new role, Mr. Brooks will manage data analytics in support of client and prospect pricing, benchmarking, and cost containment.
“We look forward to Austin adding another dimension to our team and providing consultative guidance to our clients,” said John Rutan, Executive Vice President – Client Experience at Alltrust Insurance. “Austin’s knowledge of self-funding and experience in stop loss and claims analysis will serve as a great asset to existing and new clientele.”
“It’s a great feeling to work with a client to improve or even enhance their medical benefits due to being self-funded,” said Brooks. “When an employer has control of how their plan is set up, they can do so much for their staff, and really make their employee benefits stand out as a recruiting and retention tool.”
Austin comes to Alltrust Insurance after working with self-funded clients in the state of Florida for more than three years, in both the public and the private sector. He most recently helped clients transition to self-funded medical from fully insured contracts as an Employee Benefits Specialist for Hunt Insurance Group, LLC. There he was involved in negotiating contract renewals, suggested funding levels, and benefit designs to make the best use of employee benefits and group health. He also is experienced in evaluating plan designs, coordinating stop loss and claims analysis.
Austin is a Florida native, graduating from Florida State University, with a degree in Applied Economics, and is self-funding certified by NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters).
