CHICAGO, IL – September 3, 2014 –The National Association of Independent Truckers (NAIT) has partnered with ConnectedHealth to offer the Truckers Insurance Exchange Marketplace (TIE), a consumer-focused ecommerce benefits platform. NAIT members will be able to shop for public and private market health insurance plans and other ancillary products on the platform. Both NAIT and ConnectedHealth are jointly working with a key consultant of Truckers Insurance Exchange, Marc Ballard, to launch the new platform in September.
“NAIT is proud to provide a wide variety of membership benefits that serve the needs of owner operators and reduce the cost of running a trucking business,” said David King, Vice-President, NAIT. “We wanted to make it easy for all of our members to be compliant with ACA requirements by giving them better access to healthcare coverage. Members can enroll in affordable, quality healthcare options easily online or by telephone. ConnectedHealth’s decision-support tools and intuitive approach really set them apart from other options we were considering.”
ConnectedHealth provides an easy-to-use ecommerce platform that is also fully integrated with the federal marketplace. The award-winning shopping site helps consumers successfully navigate the new complexities associated with selecting health benefits. By choosing ConnectedHealth’s consumer-focused solution, NAIT offers its members the support and guidance they need to feel confident that they have selected the right coverage for themselves and their families.
