Insperity Forms Broker Alliance with UnitedHealthcare
  • Employer solution for rising costs related to health care reform
  • Successful pilot program leads to national rollout
  • Expect to double number of authorized brokers in 2015

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 4, 2015-- Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today announced a strategic alliance with UnitedHealthcare and its broker distribution partners. The rising costs associated with health care reform created an ideal opportunity to align forces and provide a greater value to companies facing substantial increases in health insurance cost.

“The complexity and costs associated with health care reform continue to be a focal point for brokers, employers and employees. This alliance offers a comprehensive solution that provides added value to companies for the long term,” said Richard G. Rawson, Insperity president. “This solution is the result of the deepening relationship between UnitedHealthcare and Insperity, and our joint commitment to continuing to increase the value we deliver to our customers.”

Under the agreement, designated insurance brokers affiliated with UnitedHealthcare are offered the opportunity to introduce Insperity products and services to renewing or prospective clients. With Insperity Workforce Optimization®, businesses can receive a comprehensive human resources solution, as well as health benefits through UnitedHealthcare, all for a single competitive fee. This combination helps companies run better, grow faster and make more money.

“By engaging UnitedHealthcare’s broker network to promote and co-sell Insperity Workforce Optimization solutions, alongside Insperity’s sales team, more employers and individuals will have access to better information and incentives to make better decisions, the information they need to manage their health costs, and the help they need in finding the right care at the right place,” said Anthony R. Carr of UnitedHealthcare.

During 2014, 36 agencies participated in a pilot program, supported throughout the sales process by Insperity Business Performance Advisors. Based on this success and requests from brokerage firms to be part of the program, the alliance is expanding nationwide and expects to double the number of agencies in 2015.

“In the recent past, no insurance agency would have had the access to offer Insperity to its clients. When we were given the opportunity to work with an industry leader it really made sense for us, but more importantly, it became a great fit for many of our clients,” said John Krantz, partner at McLaughlin Brunson Insurance Agency LLP. “Given the vast changes and inordinate complexities that have occurred as a result of health care reform, this alliance with UnitedHealthcare and Insperity will continue to be a far reaching solution for issues facing our clients and business owners today and well into the future. We are excited about what this will mean for McLaughlin Brunson Insurance Agency and our mutual clients.”
