Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the U.S., announced a new partnership with Kaiser Permanente, one of the nation’s largest integrated health plan and health care providers. The agreement will provide comprehensive health insurance coverage to Engage clients in three key growth markets: California, Colorado and Georgia.
The new relationship with Kaiser Permanente, together with Engage’s existing offerings with Aetna and MetLife, further expands the options available to Engage clients for high-quality, affordable health care benefits. The new ACA-compliant plans will focus on market-driven products, including a suite of HMO’s and high deductible health plans. Employees also can create a tax-free health savings account (HSA) to help pay for qualified medical expenses if and when they arise.
“We are very excited to expand Engage’s health offerings in growth markets such as California, where Kaiser Permanente is a market leader, and across Colorado and Georgia, where Kaiser plans are consistently top-rated,” said Denise Stefan, president of Engage Insurance, LLC. “But even more importantly, Engage clients in these markets can now access health benefits from a carrier with outstanding customer loyalty ratings and which is recognized for delivering high-performing programs.” Kaiser Permanente’s approach to health care coordinates the health plan with technology solutions connecting its doctors, medical offices, pharmacies and labs. This integrated model can improve early issue identification, which results in lower costs and better health outcomes. These are increasingly important factors some businesses consider when choosing a healthcare partner.
