Health exchange

PLATTSBURGH — MVP Health Care has launched a new proprietary benefits exchange powered by Liazon’s Bright Choices exchange technology. NuOptions helps employers control the escalating cost of health care benefits while giving employees greater benefits choices. The program is available immediately to businesses in New York, New Hampshire and Vermont.

With NuOptions, employers use a defined contribution funding strategy to provide each employee with a set amount of money to shop for coverage in the online exchange. Employees can personalize their coverage to best fit their needs by choosing from a wide variety of benefits options. These options include multiple health-care plans from MVP along with dental, vision, disability, life, critical illness, accident, wellness, telemedicine, legal services and even pet insurance.

“We are already seeing a lot of interest in NuOptions. Employers love giving their employees the ability to choose the benefits that are most meaningful to them and their families. It’s the end of one-size-fits-all benefits,” said Denise Gonick, MVP’s president of operations.

NuOptions educates employees about coverage options and guides them with decision-support technology to make smarter and more economical benefits selections. The portal also helps streamline administrative functions for the employer.

“MVP recognized the power of the private exchange model early on and has worked closely with us to bring game-changing solutions to the companies they serve,” said Ashok Subramanian, chief executive officer and co-founder of Liazon.
