Buck Consultants’ Private Health Insurance Exchange Serves 400,000 Participants For 2014 Health Care Enrollment

Stocks in this article: XRX

RightOpt ®, the private health insurance exchange from Buck Consultants, A Xerox Company (NYSE:XRX), is servicing more than 400,000 active participants during the fall open enrollment period.

Since it became available earlier this year, employers using RightOpt include Arby’s Restaurant Group, Bob Evans Farms, Church & Dwight Co., Inc., Domino’s Pizza, Ovation Brands, and Buck’s parent company Xerox.

RightOpt, designed for employers with 3,000 or more employees, focuses on the participants’ health and wellbeing while driving down employer benefit delivery expenses. This private insurance exchange can help employers reduce their health care costs and improve employee and dependent health outcomes through its year-long focus in three key areas – choose, use, and improve. Members are encouraged to “choose” their personally preferred plan options at enrollment, “use” those options effectively throughout the year, and “improve” or maintain their health risks over time.

“RightOpt allows our employees to benefit from lower costs, choose from additional plan options, and work toward improved long-term health through expanded tools and resources that we are able to provide,” said Jim Levine, director, Compensation & Benefits at Church & Dwight Co., Inc. “We reviewed other exchanges and found that they did not fundamentally change the overall amount that Church & Dwight and its employees pay for health care. RightOpt's model is designed to deliver savings that benefit both the company and our employees.”

“The RightOpt delivery platform provided Bob Evans Farms with an opportunity to more cost-effectively deliver a competitive employer-sponsored benefit program while providing expanded plan options and resources to our employees,” said Pam Kuryla, vice president, Total Rewards, Bob Evans Farms. “Moving to RightOpt, combined with Xerox benefit administration outsourcing, supports an integrated experience across our entire workforce regardless of benefit eligibility.”

Buck also recently enhanced RightOpt to include retirees, COBRA members and part-time employees. The expansion of RightOpt means an employer can now cover its entire workforce from hire through retirement, including:

  • Full time/benefit-eligible active employees;
  • Part time/non-benefit-eligible active employees/COBRA;
  • Pre-65 retirees;
  • Medicare-eligible retirees.

“Employers are often confronted with the difficult decisions to reduce or eliminate retiree medical benefits and how to support part-time employees in evaluating and securing individual coverage,” said Sherri Bockhorst, principal and leader, Health Exchange Solutions. “RightOpt provides plan sponsors with a smart way to help their retirees and part-time workers evaluate and purchase appropriate individual coverage using available public subsidies.”
