What Is A Healthcare Trend Buster™?

A company who has trusted Paragon to ensure their healthcare expenses are below the dysfunctional & rising national healthcare trend.

After all, high expenses stifle the growth of any company.

How are we able to turn a company into a Healthcare Trend Buster™?

The answer is two-pillared. Other than our GBA Insurance Trusts' financial backing, the many fees that we forgo & our proven history of creating past Healthcare Trend Busters™, we will:


I. Drive Facts & Present Opportunities

With assets such as our In-House Director of Data Intelligence, In-House ERISA Attorney & In-House Behavioral, Psychographic, & Biometric Wellbeing Entity, we will not only help you navigate through the ever-changing regulations, but will also clearly interpret your data & identify the unexplored, yet profitable opportunities undetected by the naked eye.


II. Drive Service & Deliver Accuracy

As we deliver these two benefits, we strive daily to be Efficient, Timely & Informative. Strategic tools, such as our new ergonomic Paragon Pods office structure, our state-of-the-art VBA Software System & our Focus on COMM initiatives, allow us to deliver you the finest & most accurate service.

A Strong & Solid Foundation

We were organized in 1987 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Georgia Bankers Association Insurance Trust (GBAIT). At Paragon, in addition to administering the GBAIT plan, which includes 250 banks, we also administer over 40 self-funded accounts and hundreds of cafeteria plans.

The establishment of The Georgia Bankers Association Insurance Trust (GBAIT) in 1965, by the Georgia Bankers Association, provided quality products and stellar services to all it’s members while offering cost-effective plans to 90% of the community banks in the state of Georgia.

The GBAIT program has grown and remained profitable due to the diligent management efforts of its full-time staff and the administrative strengths of its subsidiary administrator, Paragon Benefits, Inc.

Imagine what we will do for you!

…Wow…in a short sentence….You guys are wonderful! I am very proud and very fortunate to be able to work with a staff as professional as all the staff at Paragon. The service level we get from Paragon is outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about Paragon. All the staff is Great. I have always received the best from all the Customer Service Representatives. Paragon is terrific!! Paragon has never not come thru with all the challenges we have given you. And there have been a few that were way out there.”
