RE/MAX, LLC. Offers Access to Innovative Online Marketplace for Health and Ancillary Benefits, Including Federally Qualified Health Plans
CHICAGO, IL – August 21, 2014 – ConnectedHealth, a provider of the industry-leading benefits marketplace and personalized shopping platform for employers, health plans and consumers, has been selected by RE/MAX, LLC. to offer its comprehensive online marketplace to its more than 56,000 RE/MAX Affiliates in the United States. The ConnectedHealth platform will not only provide RE/MAX Affiliates with a marketplace to shop for and purchase individual health coverage, they will also have access to ancillary and voluntary benefits on the platform. ConnectedHealth worked with leading insurance consultant Willis of Colorado to form the strategic RE/MAX relationship.
With the ConnectedHealth platform, RE/MAX Affiliates can shop for health insurance options from both the public and private exchanges, and from national and regional carriers. The platform is available now for people who need short-term coverage or who are eligible for a special enrollment before the November 15 start of the nationwide Open Enrollment period.
“We’re proud to offer holistic benefit options to our Affiliates across the nation in an effort to retain and attract top talent in the competitive real estate market,” said Sarah Blankman, RE/MAX Senior Manager, Business Alliances. “We selected ConnectedHealth’s individual platform for its superior decision-support tools, customer service capabilities and wide variety of carrier options. With ConnectedHealth, we’re offering a best-in-class solution that will enable our Affiliates to confidently select the insurance coverage that best fits their lifestyle needs.”
ConnectedHealth provides an easy-to-use ecommerce platform, helping consumers successfully navigate the new complexities associated with selecting health benefits. With ConnectedHealth, RE/MAX helps its Affiliates not only ensure they are compliant with Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements, but gives them the easiest way to choose and enroll in their selected coverage – both on and off the public exchange.
“By selecting ConnectedHealth’s consumer-focused solution, RE/MAX can offer its Affiliates the support and guidance they need to feel confident that they have selected the right coverage for themselves and their families,” said Joe Donlan, President of ConnectedHealth. “RE/MAX has always valued its team, and providing an enhanced level of access to healthcare coverage through the Marketplace is one more demonstration of their commitment to the health and financial security of their Affiliates.”
