The Power of the Portico Pool

Access the collective buying power of more than 16,000 members

Collective Buying Power Contributes to More Stable Rates

  • More than 16,000 covered lives
  • 300,000 members in prescription drug coalition

For faith-based organizations, the cost of employee benefits impacts your budget and the ability to offer important programs and services to your staff. 
 
Smaller organizations pay, on average, 8 – 18% more than larger organizations for the same benefits packages1.  
 
Portico pools thousands of congregations, educational institutions and social ministry organizations to leverage our collective buying power, which helps keep rates stable and offers potential cost savings. 
 
The pool also allows us to offer best-in-class health and retirement services and industry-leading wellness programs not typically available to smaller employers.
