RightOpt exchange opens doors to retirees

By BenefitsPro

RightOpt, a private health insurance exchange operated by Buck Consultants, has been expanded to include an employer’s retirees.

The exchange, one of dozens that have popped up in response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, has more than 400,000 active participants, making it one of the largest in the country.

Employers using RightOpt include Arby’s Restaurant Group, Bob Evans Farms, Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Domino’s Pizza, Ovation Brands, and Buck’s parent company, Xerox.

Buck said it recently “enhanced” RightOpt to include retirees, COBRA members and part-time employees.

As part of the move, eligible active employees will have access to group health plans offered through Buck’s “preferred-partner” strategy, which aligns provider networks regionally based on network breadth, provider discounts, cost guarantees and quality.
