Network Health made ACA-compliant health plans available for individuals and families on October 1st using JET Insure, a quote-to-card insurance automation platform.
Most insurers scrambled to meet the October 1st target that marked the individual mandate. This mandate allows individuals and families without employee-sponsored insurance to purchase plans through state-run exchanges. Through its partnership with JET Insure, Network Health achieved its business goals, and now offers electronic quoting options for Wisconsin residents.
Network Health’s Director of Commercial Business Strategy Joel S. Lingenhag says, “I am extremely pleased with JET Insure’s performance and deliverables. Very few vendors could be as adaptable as they have been to meet the continual changes we encountered in complying with the ACA. Everyone there is a pleasure to work with, which led us to expand our relationship to include small group self-funded.”
Sr. Business Systems Analyst Kathy Gerhart adds, “I personally can’t say enough great things about the JET Insure team. They have gone above and beyond our expectations in providing exceptional service. Their outstanding efforts and willingness to meet the ever-changing requirements associated with being ACA compliant allowed us to meet our aggressive timeline.”
With individual/family plans live, JET Insure is expanding Network Health’s single platform to include quoting for groups launching late October, and a new small group self-funded product in November.
JET Insure, the flagship product of JET Health Solutions, is a quote-to-card insurance automation platform that allows buyers, agents, brokers, and underwriters to purchase and sell individual/family plans, group plans, and specialty products from a single platform.
