Hixme raises $14.1 million to simplify healthcare for employers in wake of Affordable Care Act

“… Health fintech, according to KPMG, “has exploded with insurers actively competing head-on with banks, private equity firms and global technology companies to secure some of the latest technologies.” Since the healthcare sector remains one of the largest employers and industries in the globe, fintech companies have found a lot of room to maneuver in.

“Hixme offers employers a way to manage their employees’ healthcare under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in which an “employer pays for the plans, but employees have freedom of choice and the plans are portable.” The company’s cloud platform takes in medical and financial data from employees and their dependents for customizing benefit packages.”

Hixme wants to shake up the employer health benefits model

“One reason we have runaway inflation in health insurance is that it has been a third party purchase,” Weinberg said. “When you are consuming something someone else is paying for you, people will [pay too much] and overuse it.

“… Weinberg predicts that in 10 years, group insurance won’t exist anymore and companies like Hixme will support the new normal.”

Hixme reimagines healthcare benefits under Obamacare

“… Recognizing that a new way of handling employee health benefits must be conceived and implemented, Hixme has developed a technology platform that allows employers to fund their employees in an ACA compliant private exchange. Employers pay for the plans, but employees have freedom of choice and the plans are portable. … employees end up with plans that are better suited for their individual or family situations and they get a morale boost in the process. Companies experience savings and enjoy the ability to invest funds more directly into employee compensation and additional benefits.”
