Are you adding health benefits? If so, can we talk?

Hi there,

We're getting ready to launch our startup; a new private health insurance
exchange. Our goal is to make offering health benefits (medical, dental,
vision) to your employees both painless and completely customizable so
people get the benefits they need quickly and easily. There are even
gamification and social components within the business model, just to make
it extra schnazzy.

*As fellow startup founders, if any of the below describes you, I'd like to
chat with you for 10-15 mins* -- I'm looking to further refine our
offering, and continue validating our market research/financials:

   1. If you're considering offering health benefits in the near future
   (we'd like to talk to you about your needs, and maybe even pilot our
   service with you (for free, of course))
   2. If you just added a benefits package for your employees (we'd like to
   learn how the process went, see if we can identify additional pain points)
   3. If you have a benefits package that you offer, but you/your employees
   aren't satisfied (we'd like to learn more about that, and what options
   you're considering in the wake of the Affordable Care Act)

Finally, if you know anyone in any of the above 3 boats,
would appreciate an intro email!

Thanks very much for your help,
Alex

Alex,
Health insurance agent is one of the hats I wear.  I deal quite a bit on
the individual side and am affiliated with Gallagher Benefits on the group
side.  If there is anything I can do to help out, my brain/network is ready
for pickin'.

Ditto. By day I'm CTO for one of the largest health insurers in the US and we're going to have several ACA-ready plans available for exchanges ourselves in many states in the near future. When you're ready I'm sure I can introduce you to the right people at my "day job". Meantime, if you need help, advise, whatever, lemme know. My speciality is in the interfaces and hooking this stuff up technically speaking anyway (HIEs, HIX, HL7/X12 gateways, EMR to PHR, blah).

Cheers.

I'm definitely interested in an *individual* health plan if you guys have
ideas on options.  I recently left my corporate day job to go all in on a
startup.  Any recommendations, currently looking at Aetna and BCBS (feel
free to email me individually)!

Best,
Joy

Hey Joy, you should look into Healthy NY. It's not the most inclusive plan,
but very affordable and provides pretty good coverage.

I was happy to get a group rate for my entire family from Aetna
through http://www.nase.org/ (National Association of Self Employed).

Even with the $120 NASE membership ($10/month) we saved $300/month
over the quote we received from an individual plan. And my wife
qualified for the group when she was declined by Kaiser for an
Individual plan. (sorry if that is TMI, but it might be important to
consider.)  Here's hoping for some sanity in the health care system in
the future.

I didn't end up needing to use the insurance (about 3 months), however
it was the same doctors and facilities we had before, so I wouldn't
expect any issues.  Last month I took a paid role since any funding I
raised would go to pay other people anyway, so we transitioned to
their offered plan.  (of course, if we didn't have insurance, I'm sure
there would have been a crisis. Murphy always seem to be hanging in
the corner. heh)

Has anyone mentioned TriNet?
We have it (70-person Post-A startup) and it's very flexible and
cost-effective.
