Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has partnered with professional employer organization (PEO) Trion Solutions to offer health insurance benefits services in Connecticut.

The new services will be offered to small- to medium-sized employers through Anthem's network of independent agents in Connecticut, starting in January 2018.

"This is an unprecedented opportunity for small- to medium-sized businesses in Connecticut to manage costs by enjoying the economies of scale afforded larger companies and to receive expert assistance in HR and employee administration so they can stay focused on their core business," said Jill Hummel, president Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

"Anthem AdminCompanion, powered by Trion Solutions will be a great tool for our 1,500 independent agents to offer in their work to help Connecticut small- to medium-sized businesses continue to grow and succeed."

David Stone, president and co-founder, Trion Solutions, commented: "Trion's aggregate purchasing power will allow businesses to take advantage of Anthem products and rates typically available only to larger groups. And, our staff is experienced at working exclusively with small- to medium-sized businesses, which will help take concerns and burdens away in the areas of human resources and employee benefits."
