NEW YORK and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxwell Health ("Maxwell"), an easy-to-use, web-based platform for managing employee benefits, has entered a strategic partnership with Hub International Limited ("Hub"), a leading global insurance brokerage firm, to provide Hub clients access to Maxwell's portal to manage their full range of benefits, including medical, dental, vision, life, disability, COBRA administration, HRA/HSA, FSA and 401(k). The partnership also enables Hub clients to use Maxwell-designed incentives – including the use of challenges and fitness devices – to encourage employee wellness. In addition, Hub clients can fund rewards for hitting health targets that employees can redeem at a number of high-profile retailers.
Maxwell has an innovative, two-pronged approach to lowering health care costs by empowering organizations and employees to have more control over their health plans and spending, and by introducing incentives to foster employee health. In addition, with the Affordable Care Act causing a shift in the health care landscape, Maxwell can assist employers and employees in navigating the new law effectively.
Maxwell's platform simplifies the process of managing new and departing employees, and its enrollment dashboard enables benefits administrators to easily track employee engagement and company spending. Maxwell lets companies with existing health and benefits plans seamlessly sync them with Maxwell's platform without making any adjustments to their existing insurance setup. Its intuitive user interface is available on all browsers and the company's mobile app.
"Hub International has a reputation for industry-leading innovation and service, and we're thrilled its clients will be able to use Maxwell's platform to eliminate a lot of the HR and benefits headaches they face," said Veer Gidwaney, Co-founder and CEO of Maxwell Health. "Maxwell is a turnkey solution not only for its clients but for Hub itself, as we enable the company to easily scale a sophisticated web-based solution for clients while streamlining its own ability to service existing and new customers."
Said Ron Agypt, Chief Sales Officer, Employee Benefits, Hub International, "Maxwell's platform is a game-changer in the marketplace – it combines the best of today's technology with human expertise to help companies reduce the hassles of managing their benefits. This product will give Hub a strong competitive advantage, and we're excited to begin offering it to our clients, both existing and new."
