Benefitfocus, a provider of cloud-based benefits management software, has launched its Certified Carrier Program, which offers additional sales channel for insurance carriers to offer life, disability and other benefits products to employers.
The Hartford, a leading group disability and voluntary insurance provider, is the first carrier to sign on to the program.
Through the cloud-based Benefitfocus Platform and the recently announced ACORD Member Enrollment Standard (formerly Benefitfocus iMax), consumers will now have the ability to compare health insurance along with other employee benefits offerings, providing greater choice within an efficient multi-benefit marketplace.
"Consumers demand the same online experiences in health care insurance and benefits that they've come to expect from popular online retailers," said Benefitfocus CEO Shawn Jenkins. "We're pleased to welcome The Hartford and our long-standing health insurance partners to help us deliver a seamless, simplified experience for all involved."
