League Bolsters Digital Insurance Platform with New Partners

Toronto-based League has announced it is adding a new line-up of insurance carriers to its digital insurance platform along with a roster of new partners for wellness products and services.

League is expanding its insurance offerings by partnering up with RBCI, AETNA, Humana, Cigna, United Healthcare and MetLife. The insurtech company said the move allows League to offer fully insured benefits plans in addition to defined contribution plans.

CEO Michael Serbinis said in a release that the new partnerships allow the modern-day insurance broker to offer companies the flexibility they need to evolve with the changing requirements of their teams.

“By bringing on additional partners we are able to help employers of all sizes with multiple plan designs, consultative services and an expanded product offering that allows them to build the plan that’s right for them and their employees,” said Serbinis.

The end-to-end digital platform covers all aspects of providing a health benefits plan, from early onboarding to virtual care through its Health Concierge.

“Whether it’s a simple plan with drug and dental coverage, or complex administrative services only (ASO) partnerships, these alliances with leaders in the insurance space makes League the ultimate one-stop-shop for employers looking to give their teams the best in health benefits,” he added.

League also announced new additions to its e-commerce platform dubbed Health Marketplace, including Adidas, Headspace (a meditation and mindfulness app), Well.ca, GoodLife and Weight Watchers. The marketplace is where members can search, book and rate healthcare providers and services, in addition to paying for services and products through an e-wallet connected to their health benefit plans.

League said the company is now “the unrivaled leader” in customer engagement and loyalty, boasting a net promoter score nearly 10 times the industry average.

The platform’s Health Concierge—a chat platform that gives members access to registered nurses and health professionals at their fingertips—is now out of pilot too. In 2018, League said they’ll be expanding the Health Concierge to introduce broader specialties as well as U.S. coverage.
