Limelight Health, a technology company that streamlines the quoting, sales, enrollment, and renewal process for the employee benefits industry, has integrated its quoting technology with California’s health insurance marketplace Covered California for Small Business.
EaseCentral, the all-in-one software solution for employee benefits, payroll and HR, was also included in the integration.
The integration is expected to automate and simplify agents’ benefits quoting and enrollment process, minimising human error and also slash the amount of time it takes to present employers with their options.
Limelight Health said that certified agents and the general agents who use its technology will no longer have to manually process proposals, rates, benefit details and quotes.
By leveraging Limelight Health’s quoting data and EaseCentral’s platform, agents will be able to extract quotes and compare information from multiple carriers instantly from any desktop or mobile device.
Limelight Health CEO and co-founder Jason Andrew said: “Limelight Health is proud to integrate and partner with Covered California and EaseCentral to make it simpler, cost effective, and more accurate to quote and enroll benefits for employers that work through this partnership.”
Covered California deputy director for Small Business Exchange & Agent Program Management Robert Manzer said: “By integrating with Limelight Health and EaseCentral, Covered California for Small Business will enjoy easier connectivity with the certified insurance agents and general agents who use their services.
“We believe our partnership will be a catalyst to improving the way quoting, enrollment, renewal and account maintenance activities are performed today by small businesses and their brokers. It is time to move the small business marketplace into the 21st century’s web-enabled world of e-commerce. It’s a faster, better and a much less costly way of doing business.”
