Benefitfocus(R) Expands Reach to Consumers With ConnectYourCare Partnership
Date:1/21/2008

HUNT VALLEY, Md. and CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Benefitfocus, a leading provider of software and services for the healthcare benefits market, announced today that they have partnered with ConnectYourCare, a leading provider of Consumer Directed Healthcare (CDH) account management solutions. This partnership aims to enhance Benefitfocus' existing services by integrating ConnectYourCare's top-ranked CDH platform to create a comprehensive product that supports employer demand for flexible account-based benefit solutions.

"We are pleased to name ConnectYourCare as one of our premier CDH account management partners. Our first successful joint client is Bon Secours Health System, Inc., a not-for-profit Catholic health system with numerous hospitals and other health care facilities located in 10 communities in seven states. We look forward to deploying this innovative solution with others," commented Shawn Jenkins, Benefitfocus president and CEO. "The combination of our best- in-class data integration and benefits software and ConnectYourCare's top- rated account-based health plan administrative platform, provides a value- added integration of functionality for employers."

Benefitfocus Enterprise & Consumer Healthcare Information Technology progressively meets the needs of a continually evolving healthcare insurance market with diversified products and services. These products and services ensure the best use of technology to inform and educate individual consumers while simplifying processes for healthcare insurance constituents. The ConnectYourCare partnership will build upon Benefitfocus' benefits enrollment portal solution with employer-focused account management and administrative services including:
- An Innovative Consumer Finance Platform with Integrated Investments for

easy HSA management and bank relationship/trustee flexibility for

health plans and employers.

- A Healthcare Payment Card that will enable participants to access any

combination of accounts based upon the type of expenditure and rules

set by the participant or the employer.

- State of the art Consumer Healthcare Payments where participants use

the latest technology to transmit and store receipts for easy

reimbursements, or can click-to-pay medical invoices that arrive in the

portal from their carrier after adjudication.

- A Funds Control System that does the heavy lifting of money movement

and funds availability between employers, consumers, health plans, the

bank, the debit card network, and the healthcare provider community.

- Transparent control of data through the CYC Employer Dashboard, with

the ability to run reports and make changes to fund management or

employee data.

"Tremendous synergies are created when the consumer's health benefits enrollment portal is tightly integrated with the health education and account management," commented Jamie Spriggs, co-founder and COO of ConnectYourCare. "However, each is a separate discipline and requires a different focus. We believe this solution is at the top of every employee benefit manager's wish list as employers and health plans alike can leverage a truly comprehensive CDH technology solution that easily plugs into existing systems."
