Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
IHC Specialty Benefits, a member of The IHC Group, today announced traffic on the company’s website, HealtheDeals.com increased 57-percent during the 2015 Open Enrollment period when measured against the 2014 period. Health eDeals, which won the American Web Design Award in 2013 for its ease-of-use graphic design, is a health insurance marketplace where consumers and insurance producers can learn more about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), access and use free planning tools, and shop for and purchase individual and family health insurance plans.
The company reported that the most popular tool on HealtheDeals.com was its Health Care Reform Calculator, which consumers used to calculate the cost of Obamacare premiums and determine if they are eligible for a premium tax credit or subsidy. The most-visited article page on HealtheDeals.com was How to Calculate Your 2014 Obamacare Tax Credit, which detailed credits, penalty and exemptions for those who did not purchase ACA plans.
“Choosing health insurance is certainly a pivotal annual event, and since the 2015 Open Enrollment began in November last year, we’ve seen a healthy uptick in visitors,” said Brian Dow, Chief Operating Officer of IHC Specialty Benefits. “Savvy consumers know to do their research before making any decisions and I think they appreciate and value the quality of tools, and relevant, timely articles on HealtheDeals.com. Our steady flow of new articles keeps consumers returning to our site.”
The site’s product recommendation tool, was also popular among consumers doing research on supplemental plans, such as Metal Gap, that help offset the financial impact of the higher deductibles that are associated with many ACA plans.
Dow added, “Health eDeals will continue to be a knowledge base for consumers looking for plans and information to aid in their decision process during this year’s special enrollment period ending April 30 and throughout the year.”
