The BX has partnered with leading firms Everhart Advisors and Newport Retirement Services to create a 401(k) retirement savings program called a Multiple Employer Plan (MEP). The MEP arrangement allows BX members to join together to offer their employees access to a 401(k) plan while mitigating many of the challenges and administrative headaches. The MEP will allow you to save time, reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and limit liability.
Importantly, each BX member maintains the flexibility to customize the design of your 401(k) plan with the features that work best for your company, even with the ability to include prevailing wage contributions.
Overview and Advantages of a MEP
In the BX Multiple Employer Plan, The Builders Exchange of Central Ohio is the named Plan Sponsor and our members have the exclusive opportunity to become a “Participating Employer.” The MEP allows you to offload some of the burdens of managing a traditional 401(k)—daily operations, fiduciary risk and liabilities, and other obligations—so you can focus on what matters most for your business. And by joining together with other BX members, you can lower the expense of providing a 401(k) plan.
Participating employers can take advantage of:
The Builders Exchange of Central Ohio partners with Sedgwick because they help employers maximize their premium savings. Sedgwick analyzes each employer’s unique claim and premium history to find the highest level of savings in all available workers’ compensation programs.
Partner in controlling costs
Sedgwick saves employers millions of dollars each year, becoming a lasting partner and providing a comprehensive cost management approach. They are committed to understanding our members’ challenges and to delivering claims excellence and providing quality, sound decision making and consistency.
Sedgwick helps employers determine the best rating or discount program available, whether it’s group rating, BWC deductible, 100% EM Cap or any other BWC program available, helping you identify, evaluate and reduce your business risks to achieve premium discounts and refunds.

The Builders Exchange of Central Ohio partnered with the Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance (SOCA) to offer small employers – those with 2 to 50 employees – access to a health insurance program called a Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA). This allows members to pool together to create buying power in order to purchase more affordable health insurance as one large group.
For larger companies – those with 50 or more employees – the Alliance Saver Program can have a significant impact for employers offering health insurance benefits. The Alliance Saver Program allows for premium savings through Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of 1%, but by adding ancillary programs such as dental, vision, life and disability options, members can potentially save up to 5%.
