January 10, 2013 – Mercer launched a private benefits exchange designed to help employers more effectively manage their benefit costs.
Mercer Marketplace will allow employers and employees to access a broad array of benefits – both traditional and voluntary – from multiple insurance providers, along with education tools and support to help employees customize their choices to better fit their needs.
Employers eligible to use the exchange — those with at least 100 employees — will be able to determine how much to contribute toward the cost of their benefits program and can select from a wide range of insured and self-funded products to offer to their workforce. The platform includes full benefits outsourcing and will support employees with call center and online decision support during the enrollment process and beyond.
