Private Exchanges

A private exchange is an online portal that offers multiple benefit plan options to employees, usually through a single carrier, allowing employers to shift to a defined contribution strategy and set a limit on their their health care spend.  Private exchanges continue to have growing interest due to benefits seen by both the employer and employee.

What are some of the benefits:

  • they can be tied to a defined contribution (DC) approach to fund the employer contribution
  • offers some administrative advantages - to include automating eligibility and enrollment, managing payroll deductions, and responding to employee questions throughout the year
  • variety of plans and products allowing the employee to select those that meet their needs and budgets
  • decision-support tools
