Our approach

Wondering How Orchard Works?

Trying to figure out the differences between an employee benefits plan, an ASO plan, and an HSA? We'll help you to choose your best option.

Since we work exclusively in the employee benefits industry, we don't obtain quotes from just 2 or 3 of the insurance companies.


We make it easy to get started! So, your employees have a benefits plan. Now, what? To get everyone into the loop, we hold a review period.

You'll hear from us throughout the year. We want to make sure that you're happy and that everything is running smoothly with your benefits plan.
