Imagine, insurance shopping in one location! You have the ability to choose from a list of preferred vendors’ products, a range of deductibles, copays and benefit levels, and tailoring them as they see fit to your needs and risk tolerance.
State and federal health insurance marketplaces have been in the spotlight for months as the U.S. implements the Affordable Care Act.Meanwhile, a less-noticed development has been taking place: the rise of marketplaces set up by private brokers and companies.
This year, Lancaster-based insurance broker Murray Securus entered the arena, debuting a marketplace dubbed “Choice Benefits” on Jan. 1.
“This starts the revolution in benefits,” said Bruce Cannon, vice president of Murray Securus’ employee benefits division. “It puts employers in control of their cost and gives employees choice.”
