Profit Enhancement Group

Profit Enhancement Group, LLC is a consulting firm that specializes in increasing business profits, and
truly understanding the needs of an organization as a partner. The company places focus and expertise on Sales/Marketing, Finance and People Strategy for businesses.  The firm also has a division that focuses on Self-Funded Medical plans and how to divert cost away from the plan, particularly through insuring that all employees who should be receiving care support and benefits through CMS/Disability are having claims administered by the appropriate entity rather than the company’s plan.

In instances where it is discovered that the company’s benefits plan has provided coverage for employees whose care should have been provided for by CMS, Stace’s team can recover up to 12 months of previously-paid claims from CMS and return it to the business.  Additionally, having these employees appropriately managed by CMS also helps reduce out of pocket expense for these employees (or former active employees who are covered in retirement).

Originally, Profit Enhancement Group’s target market was small businesses, however over the past two years it was discovered the company’s solution is scalable to fit all business sizes. Its about understanding the needs of a business.
