October 05, 2010 10:43 ET Gives Companies an Alternative to Offering Employees Health Insurance

Through the GoHealth Workplace Program, Companies and Organizations of All Sizes Can Offer Employees and Members Affordable Health Insurance Options

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -, an online marketplace for health insurance comparison shopping, recently created the GoHealth Workplace Program to give businesses and organizations access to affordable, individual health insurance coverage from top insurance companies.

A sluggish economy, health reform and continually rising cost of health insurance make it difficult for employers to continue offering traditional group health insurance coverage. For companies seeking an alternative, GoHealth Workplace provides a venue for employers to help connect employees with individual health plans.

"We've recognized that it's becoming too expensive for companies to provide the same robust health insurance benefits to employees as they have in the past. But with the GoHealth Workplace program, employers can cut their health care costs and still provide easy access to affordable health insurance to all employees," said Megan Flahive, Business Developer at GoHealth Workplace.

"Workplace can also expand benefits to more employees at no extra cost. Workers who don't qualify for group coverage can use the tools through GoHealth Workplace to find a plan," added Flahive.

Health reform will also cause companies to reassess their health benefits. By 2014, medium and large-sized companies will be required to offer a certain level of coverage or pay a fine. The GoHealth Workplace model will be a future cost-effective solution to connect employees to the individual health insurance market. And as many companies will provide subsidies to help with the cost of coverage, it's also a cost-effective solution for employees. 

The tools at GoHealth Workplace allow employees to instantly compare health insurance quotes online and talk to licensed agents about their health insurance coverage. This gives employees the freedom to customize a plan that fits their health care needs and budget.

About GoHealthInsurance makes buying health insurance simple. GoHealthInsurance explains health coverage options in plain English, provides free health insurance quotes, connects shoppers with local agents, and helps consumers choose plans that meet their health and budget needs.
