AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Clearwater Benefits, a market-leading national firm that specializes in helping real estate agents find better healthcare plans at a lower price, announced the launch of an innovative payment service for real estate agents called Access™ powered by eCommission®. Access allows agents to pay for Clearwater products using a future commission as an alternative to cash or a credit card.
"Clearwater is proud to be the industry leader in helping Realtors® save over 60% on their healthcare plans while improving their benefits. Our launch today of Access will provide our customers with an important resource for securing funds to pay for their plans more consistently," said Jason Sherman, President, and Co-founder at Clearwater Benefits. "We are constantly looking for ways to innovate around better healthcare, decreased cost, and an easier process. We now have a dramatically improved option for payment through Access. Agents can utilize their commission from a future sale to give them added comfort and flexibility to pay for important healthcare solutions."
"Introducing Access in partnership with Clearwater Benefits is timely," said Sean Whaling, eCommission Founder and CEO. "With the COVID-19 pandemic, helping agents acquire and maintain healthcare is more important than ever. Access will give them the flexibility to pay for their coverage today using the commission from a future closing, which should provide added peace of mind with so much uncertainty going on."
Service features of Access:
- FLEXIBLE – Agents can use up to $1,000 from a future commission to cover their monthly healthcare fee
- EASY – Funds are sent directly from Access to Clearwater immediately
- SEEMLESS – Checkout integration with Clearwater enables agents to enroll online (myagenthealth.com/enroll) in under 10 minutes and complete the Access process without having to fill out any additional forms
- CONVENIENT – Agents have no out-of-pocket expense and 90 days to repay from a closing free of charge
- CONSISTENT – Many agents struggle to know what they can afford each month with fluctuating commissions. Having the option to pay using a future commission instead of cash or credit enables agents to evaluate and budget the best healthcare plan available
Access will initially be available as a payment option for all of Clearwater Benefit's custom plans. This partnership has been a part of a large upgrade of products, services, and tools Clearwater has invested in for open enrollment, starting on Nov. 1, 2020.
