“Meopta U.S.A. is a manufacturer in Hauppauge, New York with approximately 100 employees. We started working with Cook Maran for our Group Health Insurance in 2009 and we have been with them ever since.
“The people at Cook Maran who we have worked with over the years have been knowledgeable about what the market offers and they have counseled us on how to modify our plan design from year to year to be able to provide the best coverage possible to our employees at a reasonable cost to our company and to the employee. They have been very helpful not only at renewal time but throughout the year when problems arose, even with individual claims.
“In this environment of rapidly changing legal and regulatory requirements concerning health insurance, Cook Maran has taken all steps necessary to ensure that we have remained in full compliance.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Cook Maran for years to come.”

“The corporate Health Insurance marketplace has been an extremely unsettled environment over the last five years. Premium inflation combined with the introduction of the PPACA law has presented numerous challenges to our organization. During this time the benefits team at Cook Maran has been a trusted advisor and valuable resource for us. Through our negotiations with the insurance carriers, it is evident that Cook Maran always has Petland’s best interest in mind. Creative suggestions on plan design, combined with a strong reputation with the health insurance carriers have resulted in very favorable renewal trends for us over the last few years — with the most recent renewal coming in at a 0% increase.
“The education and guidance that we have received on the PPACA law has also been a great help since we can rely on the experts to ensure our compliance. The law is constantly changing and it give us a sense of relief to know that Cook Maran’s benefits team is interpreting these revisions and advising us on our responsibilities.
“Whether they are negotiating our renewal or just clearing up a simple billing issue, it is nice to know that CMA will do the job professionally and thoroughly. It has been a pleasure to work with the Cook Maran Benefits team over the last five years and we sincerely look forward to continuing our relationship as we grow as a company.”
