NRG Energy Selects Empyrean Benefit SolutionsTo Provide Outsourced Health & Welfare Benefits Administration
Latest Fortune 500 Firm Selects Empyrean Seeking Better Quality
Empyrean Benefit Solutions, one of the fastest growing benefits technology and service firms in the US, has been selected by NRG Energy; an innovative organization at the forefront of changing how people think about and use energy.
NRG Energy’s selection of Empyrean was the product of a formal procurement process, resulting in NRG Energy’s decision to consolidate their benefits administrative services to a single, premier provider specializing in health and welfare.
“We decided the move to Empyrean made the most sense,” said Peter Johnson, NRG Energy’s Director of Benefits. “Empyrean’s technology, scalable platform, and approach to client service were compelling making us feel Empyrean would be best for our company and our employees.”
NRG Energy is leveraging Empyrean’s entire suite of services, including core health and welfare benefits administration (eligibility management, enrollment, reporting and communications), call center, COBRA/HIPAA and direct billing. Empyrean is using their platform to service NRG Energy’s multiple populations. .
“We were excited to work with NRG Energy through this process due to their challenging benefits environment. Their current benefits administration solution is very familiar to us which allowed Empyrean to focus squarely on issue resolution using our flexible technology and deep domain experience,” according to Doug Hogenmiller, SVP of Business Development for Empyrean.
Founded in 2006, Empyrean Benefit Solutions is a leading provider of technology and services for managing large employers’ health and welfare benefit programs. Empyrean provides enrollment, eligibility management and a range of other plan management services to three distinct markets: employers, benefit brokerage firms and insurance companies seeking the ability to leverage Empyrean’s technology to bring new services, such as healthcare exchanges, to market more quickly. The company’s open systems approach brings together the industry’s most advanced benefits technology platform with the market’s leading domain experts.
