Benefitdecisions, Inc. Launching an Insurance Exchange for Corporate Clients

March 11, 2013 - Chicago, IL

Benefitdecisions, Inc., a Chicago headquartered employee benefits and HR advisory services company, announces it is launching an insurance exchange that will offer a suite of insurance products and services to middle market employers. This new insurance marketplace will be available beginning in July 2013. "Healthcare Reform has forced employers to think about benefit programs differently, both the way they will be purchased and the manner in which the programs will be offered to employees. Our insurance exchange will also be augmented with non-exchange insurance products so that our clients will have a complete assessment of all the market options and costs," says Benefitdecisions' CEO Mark Matuscak.

Since its inception in 2000, Benefitdecisions has always been on the forefront of providing cutting edge solutions for employers. According to Mr. Matuscak, "Healthcare Reform takes Benefitdecisions back to its original business, which was utilizing technology to create unique insurance markets designed to be the most efficient and cost effective platform for purchasing group products. Unfortunately, we experienced first mover disadvantage thirteen years ago because the market, defined as the buyers and sellers of group insurance products, wasn't willing to embrace innovation at that time. Those attitudes have obviously changed with Healthcare Reform."

The exchange will provide:

  • a robust defined contribution platform for employers and employees,
  • shopping, navigational and decision support tools,
  • enrollment processing for employees,
  • employer tools including reporting, dashboards, and alerts,
  • financial management functionally including consolidated billing, carrier feeds and integration with payroll systems,
  • call center support

"The proliferation of insurance markets combined with the regulatory requirements only make the evaluation and selection process for employers more complicated, but the combination of our high tech and high touch, white glove approach of providing support to our clients and their employees will ensure that our clients create the benefits programs that best fit their needs," says Mr. Matuscak.
