Benefitfocus Presents “Beyond Private Exchanges” at AHIP Institute 2015

Benefits technology provider addresses what companies and individuals really want from benefits programs

Charleston, S.C. – June 2, 2015 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, will present the evolution and future of private exchanges at the America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2015 event taking place June 3-5, 2015, in Nashville. Benefitfocus Director of Marketplaces Shandon Fowler and Enterprise Product Architect Tom Dugan will lead the session, “Beyond Private Exchanges: What Companies and Individuals Really Want from their Benefits Programs,” on Friday, June 5, at 9:55 a.m.

The session will present views on what the future holds for health care consumerism and technology, and potential impacts to public and private exchanges. Fowler and Dugan will dissect the private exchange value proposition and get to the foundation of data and technology that’s driving a transformation of the consumer-driven health insurance market. They will also examine how carriers fit into the landscape.

“With the increasing popularity of private and public exchanges, health insurers find themselves at a pivotal point in addressing their strategic focus,” said Fowler. “Understanding what employers and individuals are really looking for among the disparate exchange options — as well as a carrier’s own potential online channel — is essential. Technology will be fundamental to success in this rapidly evolving landscape.”

In addition to the Friday session, Benefitfocus will showcase its benefits marketplace solutions and answer questions about new technology for personalized benefits shopping, enrollment and management at Institute 2015 at Booth #1215. Benefitfocus has served more than 25 million people on its platform.

Institute 2015 is expected to bring more than 4,000 health care professionals to Nashville to discuss how to make health care work as consumers take more control of their coverage decisions and as data and technology continue to transform the industry.
