Advisor Partners

Your Strategic Health Plan Partner

Navigation Health was founded to support employee benefit advisors and their clients with alternative level funded or self-funded health plan options that save 15% to 30% from the traditional carrier/ASO and PPO offerings.   However, we are not just another health plan option for quoting and placement on a spreadsheet along with all the other carriers/vendors.  We want to be your strategic health plan partner.    Navigation Health works with advisors and employers that are not just looking for the status quo but are open to, or in need of, strategies that will have a major impact not only on healthcare spend at renewal but for years to come.   We have multiple solutions based on the need, tolerance, and geography of the client but all of our health plans are designed to alter behavior through plan design incentives with guidance from care navigators and other helpful member tools.

How does Navigation Health get paid for its services?

Navigation Health builds a per employee per month (pepm) fee into the administrative fee to the employer. There is no cost to the broker/advisor for our services.  Think of us as your partner for innovative health plan solutions for your clients or potential clients that are a good fit.

How do I get paid?

We build a per employee per month advisor fee into the rates. This fee is comparable (typically higher) than the carrier / ASO commissions in the marketplace.  Larger self-funded plans can be custom pepm fees.  Our stop-loss partners and PBM partner quote net of commissions.
