IHC Specialty Benefits is pleased to announce the launch of IHC Marketplace, a new technology platform that allows customers to purchase many health insurance products at once, taking the process of buying health insurance to the next level.
"Our technology is redefining the way insurance is sold. IHC Marketplace provides a true retail experience, allowing customers to purchase multiple insurance products at the same time, with full transparency. In the past, customers were required to enroll and pay for one product at a time. By allowing customers to add multiple products to their cart, IHC Marketplace has created a new shopping reality, similar to how big online retailers merchandize products," said Brian Dow, Chief Operating Officer of IHC Specialty Benefits.
"We're allowing individuals to place insurance products into their virtual shopping cart and check out online. It's a game changer for the industry," said Dow.
IHC Specialty Benefits will be utilizing IHC Marketplace technology through its agent and private label distributions. The technology will be available on healthedeals.com in the future, and more product lines are queued up for release in the coming months.
"The IHC Group is committed to growing its private exchange platform, and IHC Marketplace provides not only insurance products, but a complete user experience to help make IHC platforms some of the best in the industry," said Dow.
IHC Marketplace is privately owned by IHC Specialty Benefits, and is not affiliated with the federal health insurance Marketplace.
