eHealth, parent company of eHealthInsurance.com, has partnered with Healthcare Blue Book, the online provider of fair healthcare pricing information for consumers in their markets.
eHealth said that this partnership will combine the two companies’ strengths to deliver a one-stop shop for purchasing fairly priced health insurance along with unbiased healthcare pricing information.
In addition, the free online platform will help consumers get most value from plans they purchase by enabling them to compare, research and purchase online; obtain personal assistance from eHealthInsurance customer care center; and get fair, upfront pricing data for hundreds of healthcare services and products throughout the nation.
Healthcare Blue Book was established to provide consumers with the knowledge of fair prices for their healthcare and is used by consumers who pay for their own healthcare, have high deductible health insurance plans, or need services that their insurance company does not fully cover.
Jeffrey Rice, founder of Healthcare Blue Book, said: eHealth and Healthcare Blue Book are both dedicated to educating consumers about how to manage and pay for high quality health care. We are excited because this partnership will help our consumers find the health insurance they need at prices they can afford.
Bruce Telkamp, executive vice president of business and corporate development at eHealth, said: Consumers can use eHealth’s and Healthcare Blue Book’s free online platforms to realize powerful health insurance and healthcare savings, and we are proud to be joining our capabilities on www.healthcarebluebook.com for the benefit of consumers nationwide.
