Massachusetts CPAs who are still digging out from a record-shattering wave of heavy snowstorms this winter may have one thing to cheer: a new benefits package of health and dental insurance, along with other services, offered by the Massachusetts Society of CPAs.

The four new offerings include health insurance from various providers in the state, dental insurance provided by Delta Dental of Massachusetts, payroll services from ADP, and access to a new mergers and acquisitions network based on the Stat Trader technology platform. 

“We know how important it is that our members have the necessary tools at their disposal to manage the cost of running their business, offer competitive benefits packages to employees and provide clients the absolute in best practices today,” said MSCPA interim CEO Beth Lyons in a statement. “We’ve listened intently to our members to figure out how we can help them achieve those three goals, and we believe these new benefits, coupled with those already provided by the Society, will go a long way in doing just that.”

MSCPA members can now choose from two health insurance plans based on the size of their workforce. Smaller accounting firms with 10 or fewer employees can select a health insurance plan drawing on all of the providers and options in the Massachusetts marketplace. Larger firms, with more than 10 employees, will have the option to self-insure for additional cost savings and plan flexibility.

The new dental plan is being provided by Delta Dental of Massachusetts and allows members to access a network of dentists for both preventative and restorative dental coverage. The benefit combines two of Delta Dental’s national dental networks, Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier.

ADP will provide free payroll services to firms with up to 49 employees, and will also allow member firms to offer ADP services to their clients a reduced rate of 10 percent.

In addition, the new Stat Trader technology platform will provide mergers and acquisitions networking on a complimentary basis to MSCPA members and their clients. This exchange network profiles financial statistics and additional market data to help users evaluate, buy, sell or connect with private businesses.

The new benefits join existing discounts, products and services already provided by the MSCPA, including clothing discounts at Joseph A. Banks and Brooks Brothers; fitness and entertainment discounts at local gyms, parks and sports arenas; a range of insurance benefits including auto, vision and long-term care; financial assistance for CPA exam prep courses; discounts on continuing professional education courses; shipping rate reductions with Fed Ex and UPS; and business services discounts with providers such as Cintas and Wolters Kluwer CCH.
