Acclaris and ConnectedHealth Partner to Deliver Health Savings and Reimbursement Options to Employers and Consumers

Robust Joint Offering Gives Consumers More Ways to Protect Their Health and Financial Security

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - April 13, 2016) - Acclaris, a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) technology and services provider for consumer-directed accounts, and ConnectedHealth, a leading benefits technology company, today announced a strategic partnership to make health savings and reimbursement account options more accessible to employers and consumers alike.

As the healthcare system continues to move towards a consumer-directed model, employers and their employees are searching for ways to control benefit costs while also maintaining the same level of high quality care and service. The new partnership combines ConnectedHealth's advanced online shopping platform, which aims to help individuals and employees achieve better health and financial security, with the flexibility and comprehensiveness of the SaaS-based Acclaris solution.

"Our partnership approach is built on the notion that we can be more successful together by focusing on supporting client growth," noted Acclaris CEO Dean Mason. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to combine our world-class offering with ConnectedHealth's innovative platform, and look forward to bringing our joint solution to market."

Under the terms of the agreement, Acclaris will integrate directly with ConnectedHealth's benefits technology to offer easy access to a wide variety of health savings accounts (HSA), flexible spending accounts (FSA), and health care reimbursement accounts (HRA). Following a competitive partner review, ConnectedHealth selected Acclaris based on the company's flexible HRA options and for the unparalleled ease of integration into the platform.

"More industry studies are showing a strong correlation between a person's health and financial wellness. At ConnectedHealth, we're continuously looking for ways to address this connection through our unique marketplace technology," said Joe Donlan, president of ConnectedHealth. "By partnering with Acclaris, we can offer our customers a wider variety of health savings and reimbursement plan options, which further strengthens our comprehensive offering and ensures that consumers shopping on our platform have access to the best programs and tools to help improve their health and financial security."
