Benefitfocus, a provider of cloud-based benefits management software, has unveiled its Certified Carrier Program, a website that will allow consumers to compare health insurance along with other employee benefits.
"Consumers demand the same online experiences in health care insurance and benefits that they’ve come to expect from popular online retailers,” Benefitfocus CEO Shawn Jenkins said.
The Hartford, an insurance provider, was the first carrier to sign on to the program.
“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,” Jenkins said.
The new program can be accessed through the cloud-based Benefitfocus platform and the company's recently announced ACORD Member Enrollment Standard.
