CHICAGO, IL: GoHealth, online exchange for individuals and families announces that Walgreens part-time employees across the country are able to enroll in health insurance through GoHealth's online marketplace.
With this partnership, Walgreens will be providing its part time employees with support for selecting a health insurance plan. The exchange provides access to easy-to-use comparison software, free licensed insurance advisors, plan recommendations, and a wide variety of health insurance options.
Under the Affordable Care Act, some Walgreens part-time employees may be eligible for financial assistance to buy individual or family health insurance. As a Web-Broker partner of the federal government, GoHealth is capable of estimating financial assistance amounts and enrolling people in subsidized health insurance directly through the GoHealth Marketplace.
"Employer health benefits are on the cusp of a major transition, and organizations are looking for solutions that give employees greater control over their health insurance decisions. Walgreens is one of many companies we're working with who are ahead of the health insurance consumerism trend," says Brandon Cruz, President of GoHealth.
