I can tell you my personal experience with ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors) with regard to your question. ABC sponsored the medical and dental plans, which were underwritten by John Hancock. ABC coordinated all activities with Hancock, including claims processing. They obtained SPD's for us (written by Hancock), billed us and assisted with dispute resolution. All in all, not a bad situation.
