Holmes Murphy & Associates Partners with Empyrean Benefit Solutions to Offer Healthcare Exchange Solution to Employers

Leading insurance broker Holmes Murphy selects Empyrean’s adaptive technology and responsive services to offer best-in-class benefits administration and exchange solutions.

Holmes Murphy and Empyrean Benefit Solutions, Inc. today announced their partnership to provide world-class benefits administration and healthcare exchange solutions. Holmes Murphy evaluated several providers and ultimately selected Empyrean for the extensive industry expertise of the leadership team and flexibility of Empyrean’s technology platform in support of Holmes Murphy’s business model.

Holmes Murphy wanted to develop a unique, hybrid healthcare exchange solution, where employers could continue offering current medical plan designs while also leveraging an exchange for ancillary and voluntary products such as life insurance, disability insurance, and other voluntary plans that can complement Consumer Driven Heath Plans and strategies. In reviewing other solutions, Holmes Murphy found Empyrean offered a streamlined implementation process, substantial support resources and flexibility in working with carrier products.

Due to several shared clients, Holmes Murphy was already familiar with Empyrean’s high level of service and adaptive technology which were key drivers in Empyrean’s selection. Den Bishop, President of Holmes Murphy, explains, “Empyrean’s robust back-end technology and strong supporting teams enable us to expand our suite of products and offer our clients a hybrid exchange solution designed for employers that want to transition into private exchanges.”

Holmes Murphy is the latest partner in a growing list of insurance brokers and carriers that utilize Empyrean’s benefits administration technology and services. Keith Wilson, Empyrean’s Executive Vice President of Partner Solutions, states, “Empyrean not only provides the best benefits administration services to employers, we also enable our broker and carrier partners to efficiently offer exchanges and complete benefits administration solutions to their client base.”
