HealthPartners has announced the launch of Plan for Me, a new private exchange solution for keeping costs under control while providing additional choices and ease-of-use during open enrollment. Plan for Me supports many prepackaged plans, such as defined contribution and performance network options, with the option for employers to offer custom plans. For members, Plan for Me offers automated and personalized plan shopping based on a simple initial assessment about current and future health care needs.
The tool provides a comparison tool offering side-by-side views of health plan costs, coverage, and prescription medicines to help members choose the most appropriate option. This confidential information does not affect plan cost as members select and enroll in their plan of choice. In addition, and complementary to Plan for Me, Health Partners has announced other options for members including health care services for travelers with Assist America and a treatment cost calculator for price comparisons of medical services around the country.
“Employers today are facing a lot of change with health care reform. New costs and rules about employee health benefits are making this year’s open enrollment challenging to navigate, and that can trickle down to employees,” said Andrea Walsh, chief marketing officer at HealthPartners. “Plan for Me is one way HealthPartners is bringing more control and ease to employers as they offer health care and employees as they shop for health care.”
