Hixme - Redefining the Way Employees Source Health Coverage
As CEO of Hixme Insurance Solutions, Inc., Denny Weinberg guides a firm that has re-envisioned the packaging of employee benefits in ways that reflect the current health insurance marketplace. Denny Weinberg was interviewed recently in The Financial Revolutionist and described his data science-focused approach as reflecting new market realities.
In the past, employees obtained insurance through employers, with pooling strategies representing the optimal strategy for achieving best pricing. This practice has largely changed, as increasing numbers of healthy employees have opted out and raised the bottom line costs for those who remain within employer-led insurance plans.
Through Hixme, insurance coverage pooling occurs at a much larger scale, with the participation of some 22 million people across companies ensuring stability and providing price-setting leverage. Hixme’s approach is more suitable for sourcing plans than purchasing them on a public exchange directly. As Mr. Weinberg characterizes it, Hixme’s approach provides a unified source of relevant information that enables workers to “project and understand” their needs and identify which plan suits their family the best.
