Published on February 3rd, 2023
Alegeus is proud to announce we extended our partnership with The Difference Card, an innovative benefits provider delivering custom and cost-effective health insurance solutions for organizations across the U.S.
A long-time Alegeus partner, The Difference Card is a healthcare disruptor whose mission is to provide employers and their employees with improved benefits at a lower cost. In fact, the organization reduces employer health insurance costs by nearly 20 percent on average, while also achieving a net promoter score (NPS) of 52, which is considered excellent. NPS measures the loyalty of customers to a company.
For more than 20 years, The Difference Card has helped employers maximize their health plan efficiency. For nearly 15 of those years, Alegeus has been their trusted partner. With its partner-first model and industry-leading benefit funding and payments technology, Alegeus has empowered this administrator to deliver account-based solutions—including its unique Medical Expense Reimbursement Plan (MERP), which offers considerable cost-saving benefits to individuals.
“Our goal since our inception has been to deliver custom and cost-effective health insurance benefits while helping nearly 160,000 employees find quality care. In today’s challenging business and economic environment, this is more important than ever,” said Joseph Donovan, chief executive officer, The Difference Card. “Through our long and successful partnership with Alegeus—an organization that shares our vision—we’ve been able to bring billions of dollars in savings to employers while providing the highest caliber of employee benefits.”
