Flores & Associates, LLC and DirectPath Enter Strategic Alliance

Flores & DirectPath partner to drive enrollment in consumer directed health options for large employers

Charlotte, NC – January 10, 2018 – Flores & Associates, a leading national administrator of tax-advantaged consumer directed reimbursement plans, has partnered with DirectPath, the industry leader in employee engagement, healthcare transparency and compliance, to offer optimized account-based health care solutions to large employers, and the brokers who serve them.

According to statistics from the Employee Benefits Research Institute (EBRI) HSA Database, by 2019 72% of employers with 500+ employees will be likely to offer an HSA-eligible health plan. However, research from United Benefit Advisors shows that only 19.1% of employees at large companies offering HSAs currently choose to enroll. The alliance between Flores & DirectPath seeks to drive enrollment in consumer directed options through a low cost, high value strategy that integrates early education and engagement services provided by DirectPath with exemplary execution of account administration by Flores. The intended results of this combined effort are greater initial enrollment in consumer directed health plan options and higher overall employee satisfaction with plan choices so that employers can realize cost savings without decreasing employee perception of their company’s benefits package.

Having worked with both DirectPath and Flores, I can honestly say that there are no better partners in the health care benefits business,” said Kay Curling, chief human resources officer, Salient CRGT. “These organizations truly understand the challenges HR teams face managing benefits enrollment and administration, and offer best-of-breed services that consistently deliver the time and cost efficiencies businesses seek. They have become an extension of our employee experience brand.

We’re happy to have found a partner that places the same value on personalized service as we do,” said Bart Yancey, CEO, DirectPath. “We know that employee benefits engagement is essential for steering employees toward plans that meet their needs while controlling costs, and believe that Flores – which operates using a similar white-glove model on the back end – will be the perfect complement to our services. We’re very eager to roll out Flores’ tremendous offerings to our clients and prospects.

We’re thrilled to partner with DirectPath,” said Mario Flores, president, Flores & Associates. “By integrating our services, we can offer our clients the full spectrum of consumer-based assets needed to optimize CDHP, HSA and FSA migration. This means improved enrollment process efficiency and greater health care benefits savings.
