Rylan Klaseen & Associates
Rylan Klaseen started quite young in the insurance/financial services business, interning with Waddell & Reed while still in high school in Colorado. He moved to New Orleans as Operations Manager for a complementary care center, while continuing to pursue his college studies. Witnessing Hurricane Katrina firsthand, he realized even more the importance insurance plays in protecting your assets -- and above all, your health.
After living in southern France, continuing to pursue a degree in International Business Management and traveling around Europe & northern Africa for a few years, he settled in Southern California. And it has been a turbo upward trajectory ever since. He quickly built a successful practice with AFLAC, and then, as one of the youngest District Sales Coordinators in the nation, built the most successful district in Southern California, and one of the most successful nationwide, consistently leading his team to outperform expectations.
He chose AFLAC because of their consumer-driven health care focus, no-nonsense approach, and unrivaled commitment to a 4-day claim payment turn-around -- all characteristics that he could genuinely represent with pride.
"Navigating Health Care Reform is a nimble broker's game."
Research has shown that the Affordable Care Act has companies reeling and employees confused -- not to mention insurance brokers who are set in their ways. Recent surveys of insurance brokers have at least half considering leaving the insurance industry all together -- right when companies and their employees say they need advise & expertise on Health Care Reform the most.
It is no longer "business as usual." And, with the challenges in roll-out, continued political wrangling, and changes in key rules, the dust is far from settled. If you're a Blockbuster retail store, and you don't see Netflix coming -- well...it's definitely a nimble broker's game.
"If you're a Blockbuster retail store, and you don't see Netflix coming -- well...."
Rylan studied to become an expert in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), and then had the foresight to create a voluntary benefits strategy to mitigate additional costs of the Affordable Care Act for his clients.
"He originated a benefits hybrid that has been saving his clients up to $200/month per employee while maintaining the same level and sometimes even enhancing coverage."
But he also quickly realized, as innovators do, that the employee benefits landscape needed a comprehensive, blended approach to maintain protection levels while being as cost efficient as possible. So he originated a benefits hybrid that has been saving his clients up to $200/month per employee while maintaining the same level of coverage. In his mind, it was a simple, obvious "fix" -- but as he began implementing his benefits blend for his clients, what became obvious was that he had created an approach that was quite revolutionary in the industry.
That's how Rylan Klaseen & Associates and Tailored Benefits Delivery were born. Rylan has now assembled an array of employee benefit experts and resources to provide a menu of customized, full service benefits delivery based on what his thorough value assessment determines a client needs. Once he performs an assessment for you, he and his team will devise the best recommendation, the best blend, to bring back to you in order to meet your one-of-a-kind organization's one-of-a-kind needs. It's not only the best way -- it is the only way to make sure you've provided the best protection to your valued employees in the most cost efficient way possible.
"He knows you can never step in the same river twice."
What may seem like uncertain times to most are opportune times to Rylan. He knows you can never step in the same river twice. He realizes, in helping clients navigate Health Care Reform and mitigate costs, we have an unprecedented opportunity to encourage consumers to sit in the benefits driver seat where they belong, enabling companies to spend more of their time and money doing what they really exist to do -- business -- in an exciting, ever-changing world.
