Assurex Global, the world’s largest privately held commercial insurance, risk management and employee benefits brokerage group, announces a strategic partnership with GoHealth, the nation’s leading private health insurance exchange for individuals and families. The partnership addresses employers’ growing demand for non-group benefits solutions. Through the collaboration, all 48 of Assurex Global’s partner agencies in the United States can offer GoHealth’s private exchange to their employer clients at no cost.
GoHealth’s exchange is tailored for individuals who are ineligible for group health insurance, including part-time employees, early retirees and COBRA-eligible individuals. Using GoHealth’s integrated enrollment platform, individuals can easily compare prices and benefits online from the nation’s top insurance carriers and obtain one-on-one enrollment support by phone from GoHealth’s licensed insurance advisors. Individuals can also apply for financial assistance directly through GoHealth.
“We saw the need for an individual market solution after hearing feedback from Assurex Global Partners,” said John Clark, Assurex Global SVP Benefits Practice Leader. “A search was conducted, and GoHealth was selected and introduced to our firms. The reception has been encouraging with many Partner firms executing agreements with GoHealth. The individual market presents a great opportunity for our Partner firms. With GoHealth, they can now meet the needs of the segment.”
“We are pleased to offer our marketplace to help individuals compare and buy the right health insurance plans. Together, GoHealth and Assurex Global can address both the group and individual market, serving as a comprehensive resource for employer clients,” says Scott Sullivan, GoHealth SVP Sales and Business Development.
