First Person, HealthJoy Partner to Bring Mobile Benefits App to Hoosiers

Goal is healthier, more satisfied employees and lower healthcare costs for employers

Indianapolis benefits and compensation advisory firm First Person Advisors announces a partnership with HealthJoy, a benefits experience platform, to help Indiana employers maximize the value of their benefits package, reclaim their HR team’s time so they can focus on strategy over administrative tasks, and help their employees achieve better healthcare outcomes.

As employee benefits options have increased over the years, benefits packages have become more valuable to employees, but also more complicated. HR teams often struggle to manage and communicate the many components of a typical benefits program, resulting in plans that are underutilized and unsatisfactory in terms of return on investment.

“When employees are frustrated with the complexity of their benefits, they tend to use them as little as possible and use them inefficiently,” said First Person Senior Director of Health Strategy Ryan Bojrab. “By simplifying access and creating a one-stop portal, HealthJoy increases benefits utilization and employee engagement while reducing employer costs.”

HealthJoy’s user-friendly app delivers each employee a personalized benefits wallet with their health insurance and other benefits their employer provides, including HSAs and dental insurance. Employees also receive 24/7 on-demand access to online medical consultations, live healthcare concierges to answer questions and identify in-network providers, prescription savings, bill review, and more to help them make informed decisions while lowering their healthcare spend.

“As two firms that have always prioritized employee satisfaction and wellness, there is a natural synergy between First Person and HealthJoy,” said Dave Mallen, Executive Vice President, Strategic Partnerships at HealthJoy. “Between their holistic and innovative strategies and our user-friendly and powerful platform, together we will help Indiana companies and their employees simplify and accelerate their employee benefits experience.”

Companies across all industries can benefit from HealthJoy. Its track record shows impact across an employer’s entire benefits package as well as the employee healthcare experience. Employers report that HealthJoy increases the use of telemedicine, guides employees to lower-cost prescription options, and identifies and negotiates billing errors. In addition, HR teams report a sharp decline in calls from employees with questions or complaints about their benefits.

“If employees don’t understand how to use their benefits, then the benefits spend is not efficient,” said First Person President Mark Minner. “HealthJoy connects employees to benefits in an innovative way like never before, and that will be reflected positively in employee engagement. We’re proud to make HealthJoy a part of our offerings.”
