PPI Benefit Solutions and HealthyCT Agreement Creates New Health Insurance Option for Large Groups
PPI Benefit Solutions (PPI), a leading provider of benefits administration technology and services, has signed an agreement with HealthyCT, Connecticut’s physician-sponsored, non-profit health insurance company, to provide Connecticut employers and brokers with a new health plan option.
HealthyCT is a Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) where any profits are invested back into products, programs, services and future premium stabilization or reduction. It has a statewide network of more than 15,000 providers, and it provides health insurance coverage to individuals, small and large groups.
Through PPI, HealthyCT can offer groups with 51 or more employees a benefits administration platform that consolidates online enrollment, a powerful HR portal, integrated COBRA administration, consolidated billing, and claims advocacy for a broad range of benefits and carrier products all in one place. The addition of PPI’s services will add tremendous new value for employers and brokers.
“HealthyCT has designed a compelling model of health care delivery and management, and we are very excited to add HealthyCT as a preferred carrier to our portfolio of health insurance plans,” said Luis Nunes, President & CEO of PPI Benefit Solutions. “PPI has an established track record of delivering new business to our carrier partners while helping brokers deliver a more comprehensive offering to employers and their employees.”
“By leveraging the proven technology and services of PPI, HealthyCT will now deliver greater performance and value to our large group clients,” said Ken Lalime, CEO of HealthyCT. “The PPI platform helps our clients’ busy Human Resources professionals streamline the administration of their HealthyCT plan along with many of their other benefit offerings at the same time. It is a tremendous value-add and timesaver for them.”
