Empyrean and Bloom Health: Leading the Evolution of Benefits Technology

July 5th, 2016

Rich Wolfe, CEO Empyrean Benefit Solutions

Today we’re announcing big news: Bloom Health has officially joined the Empyrean family. Together, we’re moving towards a unified one-platform approach to bring the best benefits technology and services to employers and their employees.

This is a dynamic time for the benefits industry, and Empyrean continues to be an active part of this benefits evolution. Consumer-directed health plans (CDHPs) are nothing new, having existed in the US for over a decade. However, today more benefit strategies are shifting to consumerism (consumer-centric options) as employers struggle to offer competitive benefits amid skyrocketing costs and a continuously changing regulatory landscape.

The industry is still trying to determine how to communicate options like high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) and private exchanges in the context of more traditional defined-benefit plans, like Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs).

To solve these issues, Bloom developed award-winning technology that has helped pioneer the management of consumer experiences within the benefits space. The Bloom platform – along with its dedicated customer service and support – empowers employees with tools that help them navigate coverage options and truly leverage their benefit programs.

Over our three-year partnership, Empyrean and Bloom have successfully integrated technologies to serve hundreds of clients, and we’re excited to expand these capabilities further together. We share a vision of bringing strategy-enabling technological innovations to benefits – including carrier-agnostic solutions for implementing traditional strategies, exchange models, and hybrid approaches alike. As one company, we have additional avenues to serve a wide range of clients with an enhanced suite of tools and services, offering comprehensive support as clients’ needs change over time.

We welcome our new family at Bloom, and together look forward to continuing to drive the benefits technology evolution.
