BALTIMORE, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Transamerica is expanding enrollment options for key employee benefits through a new relationship with Maxwell Health (Maxwell), a leading HR and benefits technology platform and marketplace that simplifies HR for small- to mid-size employers across the country.
Maxwell's platform includes benefits administration, onboarding and compliance tools that automate benefits and HR, an online enrollment system and benefits marketplace that makes choosing benefits intuitive for employees, and a mobile app that makes using benefits easy.
This partnership with Maxwell enables Transamerica to further assist employers in streamlining enrollment, administration, reporting, communication, and engagement processes, while allowing benefit advisors to easily browse, compare and quote benefits in an intuitive way. Maxwell also helps employees identify and understand the value of their benefits beyond the price of the premium.
"Transamerica's relationship and integration with Maxwell Health provides benefit brokers and consultants with access to enrollment, communication and benefit recommendation tools that empower employers and employees to better manage the benefits selection process – which features Transamerica's industry-leading supplemental health products," said John Stanley, chief marketing officer, Transamerica Employee Benefits.
"Transamerica provides an extensive portfolio of best-in-class products along with a stellar national reputation and well established broker partnerships," said Mike Zarrillo, vice president of strategic partnerships and marketplace at Maxwell Health. "Our organizations are aligned in our joint commitment to providing brokers and employers the relevant options they need to successfully navigate the fast-changing environment of employee benefits and to helping employees think about benefits decisions through a broader lens."
The Maxwell Marketplace is a curated library of products that help individuals and families get coverage and access to services that meet their unique needs. Employees can enroll in all their benefits, including medical, voluntary and ancillary insurance products, as well as financial and lifestyle benefits like a healthcare concierge, telemedicine, or health savings, flexible spending and health reimbursement accounts. Maxwell's approach is based on fully integrated carrier and vendor partnerships supporting complex benefit strategies and integrates with leading payroll solutions for streamlined HR processes. The blue-ribbon suite of products underwritten by Transamerica – such as hospital indemnity, accident and critical illness insurance – help provide financial protection to employees.
