Health Connector rolls out online small business platform

The Massachusetts Health Connector launched a new platform on Nov. 6 to serve small businesses, making it easier for employers to shop for plans and save money. Jason Lefferts, spokesman for the Health Connector, is shown at a recent open enrollment event in Worcester.

Officials at the Massachusetts Health Connector, the state-based health insurance marketplace, are touting a new online platform to help small businesses manage health plan costs while making it easier for employees to shop for plans.

The Health Connector for Business website launched on Monday. The platform, which caters to businesses with fewer than 50 employees, allows employers to quickly find a local broker to help manage a plan or create a plan on their own, according to a statement from the Health Connector.

The flexibility of the website means employers can design an option that best reflects the needs of the company as a whole, and employees can pick the plan that best fits their health care situation.

Participating carriers include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, Fallon Community Health Plan, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Health New England and Neighborhood Health Plan. Tufts Health Plan will be added later in 2018.
