Founded in 1962 as the Florida Bankers Insurance Trust (FBIT), our organization began as a not-for-profit serving the Florida Bankers Association (FBA). At that time, our primary role was to provide employee benefits and services to FBA members.
Over the years, we’ve expanded capabilities to cover a broad range of benefit process outsourcing services. In the early 1990s, FBIT became a separate entity and entered into an exclusive health care agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. We also established important relationships with market leaders in medical, life, disability, vision, and other ancillary benefits.
In 2006, we completed a three-year upgrade of work processes and systems. Over that time, our organization had grown by more than 80% and significantly improved operations and customer service. In 2014 we partnered with one of the nation’s leaders in benefits administration technology and now as Florida Bankers Health Consortium, we deliver one-source administrative solutions to over 60 Florida Banks.
With over 50 years of esteemed service to the Florida banking industry, you can rest assured that our people are fully committed to delivering the highest quality customer and administrative service to our clients (employers and employees), brokers, agents, and partners. We value and provide integrity, honesty, transparency, excellence, and mutual respect— because you, your Board Members and your employees, deserve nothing less.
