Anthem has entered into an agreement with Alegeus, a specialist in consumer directed healthcare (CDH) solutions, to serve as the preferred partner to power the CDH programs of Anthem’s affiliated health plans.
The Alegeus platform will power these plans to provide robust engagement tools that help consumers optimize their healthcare spending and maximize their healthcare savings.
“Consumer directed healthcare continues to play a significant role in the solutions we offer our customers. As consumers assume more financial responsibility, it is imperative that health plan strategies evolve to deliver products and solutions that support and guide them,” said Patrick Blair, senior vice president, Commercial Business Segments at Anthem.
“As we evaluated technology partners to enable CDH product strategies, it was clear that Alegeus was the right partner for this critical market opportunity – giving our health plan affiliates the agility and flexibility to bring the right solutions and unique capabilities to consumers.”
By leveraging an established CDH platform, health plans can transform the consumer healthcare experience – delivering unique solutions to help them make informed decisions and maximize the value of their healthcare dollars. Fully-integrated CDH solutions offer flexibility to support a wide range of plan designs, unique features that maximize consumer convenience and choice, and powerful tools and programs to maximize consumer engagement.
“We are thrilled that Anthem has put their trust in Alegeus to help them capitalize on this compelling CDH market opportunity,” said Steven Auerbach, CEO at Alegeus. “We are fully committed to providing strategic support and the enabling technology that brings to market innovative CDH product offerings, such as a seamless consumer healthcare experience.”
