New solution from Alight helps retirees transition to Medicare Advantage plans
Lincolnshire, Ill. September 1, 2020
Alight Solutions, a leading provider of next level human capital and business solutions, today announced it will offer enrollment into Medicare Advantage coverage directly to eligible retirees that do not have access to employer-provided retiree medical insurance. Through its acquisition of Choice Health, a fully integrated consumer acquisition platform specializing in the high-growth, Medicare Advantage marketplace, Alight will expand on its already robust healthcare capabilities.
For workers retiring without employer-provided retiree medical benefits, Alight’s solution will offer a simpler way to access Medicare Advantage coverage. Using licensed agents, Alight can now help transition those workers from the employer-provided healthcare plans they had while actively working, to Medicare Advantage plans available from a variety of national carriers. And, robust retention and support services minimize policy turnover to maximize customer value and satisfaction.
“With fewer and fewer companies providing retiree health benefits to future retirees, the transition from employer-provided coverage to the complex, open market can be daunting,” said Colin Brennan, president, Global Solutions and Services at Alight. “Alight can now better care for the needs of workers throughout the full course of their careers and through retirement. We are thrilled to add this critical component to our robust suite of healthcare solutions.”
Alight’s curated suite of integrated health and wealth solutions enables employees to access health coverage, navigate costs and complexity and manage their total wellbeing over their lifetime.
Alight clients will be able to offer their Medicare-eligible retirees access to these new services beginning in the 2021 Medicare Advantage enrollment period.
