DALLAS, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Viverae®, a leader in workplace wellness technology, is proud to be selected as a preferred wellness provider by Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), a global brokerage for commercial insurance, employee benefits, and risk management solutions. Available to employers with more than 500 employees on AJG's private exchange platform, Gallagher Marketplace, employees can choose Viverae's wellness programs when selecting benefits. This immediate buy-in of healthy habits takes healthcare consumerism to the next level.
With the ability to compare plan pricing and quality, employees are put in the driver's seat of their healthcare and spending, all while learning how lifestyle improvements can reduce costs. According to a Gallagher Marketplace study, employers who use the private exchange benefit from the effects of increased employee choice and typically see a reduction in overall medical plan costs.
"Private exchanges are a powerful instrument to get employers and employees alike to think differently about managing their health costs," said Mike Lamb, Viverae president and chief executive officer. "Shopping for benefits infuses a level of awareness that underscores the relationship between healthcare costs and actual health behaviors, offering the best chance of success."
Alternatively, the seamless integration allows human resource administrators to manage participation incentives in wellness programs and receive consolidated billing for services, simplifying the process with a combined view of charges.
Companies with more than 500 employees can choose from Viverae's targeted, evidence-based and engagement-focused programs. Program options include a focus on general health awareness, engagement, or targeted health outcomes. In addition to accessing a robust suite of insurance products and decision support tools, human resource administrators can think strategically about offerings to achieve health benefit goals.
