Ovation Benefits Group L.L.C. has scooped up a health risk management firm.

Ovation Benefits, Farmington, Conn., a benefits broker, is acquiring Health Navigators L.L.C., Atlanta, a company that identifies high-risk employees and their spouses and helps them deal with their risk factors.

Bill Mauke, a partner at Ovation Benefits, will be leading an effort to expand health improvement programs at the company in 2011, the company says.

The price of the deal was not available, but Ovation Benefits says Peter Townsley, a principal at Health Navigators and co-founder, and Dr. Charles Taylor, another Health Navigators co-founder, will join Ovation Benefits.

Taylor will become Ovation Benefits’ chief medical officer.
