Modern, Digital Platform Gives Employees Choice, Convenience and Savings

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - February 02, 2016) -  LEAGUE Inc., the new digital health platform that connects people to trusted health and wellness providers, today introduced LEAGUE Benefits, designed to unshackle companies from the limitations of old-school health benefits. The platform makes it easy for companies to deliver Personal Spending Accounts, Health Spending Accounts, and Corporate Wellness Programs to their employees. More than a hundred companies in Toronto and Seattle are already working with LEAGUE. 

"Today's workforce believes that health is a daily pursuit," says LEAGUE CEO and Founder, Michael Serbinis. "Unfortunately, the health insurance industry has failed to keep up. Only a fraction of people actually use their health benefits because they are largely irrelevant to today's employee. Despite this, costs continue to increase for employers."

LEAGUE Benefits combines the company's state-of-the-art digital platform and curated marketplace of health and wellness services, with a suite of benefits products that give employees more choice and easy-payment options. Designed to increase engagement and utilization, employers can easily create a health and wellness program that differentiates them as an employer and delivers a return on their investment.

"The idea is simple. We make it easy for people to use their benefits. We make it easy for companies to provide health coverage their employees actually want. And we only make them pay for what they use," said Serbinis. "By offering relevant, modern health programs, companies can differentiate themselves to attract and retain the best talent."

"Frustration and annoyance are often synonymous with traditional health insurance," said Michael Garrity, CEO of Financeit and LEAGUE customer. "Our team is genuinely interested in their overall health -- mental, physical and spiritual. This represents a huge opportunity for us to create an engaging, healthy workplace that offers convenience and choice in how employees take care of themselves."

With LEAGUE Benefits, employers can provide:

1. LEAGUE SPENDING ACCOUNTS

Personal Spending Accounts and Health Spending Accounts are a great way to give employees the flexibility to pursue health and wellness services to meet their current goals. They can be provided to every employee to complement existing health coverage, or used as a performance reward. The spending accounts are connected directly to the LEAGUE app, making it easy for users to select their method of payment.

2. LEAGUE GROUP BENEFITS

In the coming months, LEAGUE will offer group benefits products to companies across North America. LEAGUE Group will give employers control over their costs through complete transparency into every aspect of their plan and will provide employees with maximum flexibility to build the coverage that's right for them.

3. LEAGUE WELLNESS

LEAGUE gives companies the ability to create customized offerings for employees, delivered on-site by the best health professionals in the business. Whether it's yoga classes, workshops, or a massage day, LEAGUE Wellness allows employers to make staying healthy a part of their company's culture.

HOW IT WORKS:

The LEAGUE platform gives employers tools to easily manage their benefits program, and deliver the ultimate in choice and convenience to their employees:

DEDICATED ADMIN APP
With LEAGUE, HR managers are up and running in minutes. A dedicated web app provides companies with the ability to create Personal & Health Spending accounts quickly. Employee utilization is tracked, and LEAGUE only invoices companies for what employees use. This usage-based model allows employers to control benefit expenses and reduce overall costs. The app includes a catalogue of services featuring local health providers who conduct workshops, seminars, bootcamps and classes as well as half- and full-day clinics.

ACCESS TO A TOP-RATED MARKETPLACE
Currently available in Toronto and Seattle, LEAGUE curates a network of medical, dental, preventative and healthy lifestyle services offered by rated and reviewed providers. LEAGUE gives employees unprecedented flexibility to define their own health goals and choose the services right for them. From acupuncture to zumba and everything in between, LEAGUE makes it easy for people to book a massage, sign-up for a yoga class, book time with a personal trainer, decompress in a meditation workshop, or visit a dentist.

MODERN, DIGITAL & CONVENIENT EXPERIENCE
With the ultra-convenient LEAGUE app finding local health professionals has never been easier. LEAGUE makes it easy to discover, schedule and pay for services. The LEAGUE Digital Wallet allows users to choose from their Health Spending Account, Personal Spending Account, or personal credit card to automatically pay the health provider once the appointment is completed.
