ST. LOUIS, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Shopping and purchasing health insurance online just got easier. Mercy Health Plans (MHP) is proud to announce the launch of MercyOne Connect(TM), a newly released online quoting and ecommerce application that is designed to connect consumers and brokers with individual health insurance plans.

In today's rapidly changing technological world, Mercy Health Plans understands the need to utilize technology to enhance the customer's experience. With that in mind, Mercy Health Plans' online solution provides both a broker solution to assist with insurance business tools as well as a consumer site for those who will be seeking insurance coverage on their own.

The complex nature of health insurance combined with the vast number of insurance benefit options can make it challenging for consumers and small business owners searching for insurance coverage, to find the best plans at the most affordable price. MercyOne Connect(TM) minimizes insurance complexities by clearly presenting health insurance information with the ability to shop, compare and apply for insurance plans online.

With MercyOne Connect(TM), insurance seekers can easily compare multiple insurance plans, benefit designs, monthly premiums and other plan options such as deductibles, maternity and prescription coverage. After a plan is selected, consumers can quickly and securely submit an online application.

"The consumer experience is very important to us and we will continue to incorporate innovative solutions that add to the service experience with Mercy Health Plans."

MercyOne Connect(TM) includes features such as electronic online applications, side-by-side comparison and search features that enable users to find what they need with detailed product information - all of which are designed to assist prospective members in identifying and selecting the health insurance product that best suits their needs.
