Envestnet entered an exclusive partnership with digital engagement platform Healthpilot that simplifies the Medicare health insurance plan selection and enrollment process, the companies said in a joint announcement.
As part of the pact, announced Tuesday, the companies are “equipping financial advisors with a powerful new capability to enable their clients in or nearing retirement to optimize their health insurance coverage every year, adding a new service for a key demographic for their practices,” they said.
Healthpilot will be available at no cost to advisors and their clients via integrations with the Envestnet and Envestnet | MoneyGuide platforms.
The Healthpilot platform uses proprietary decision-support algorithms to determine the best Medicare plan for each user, the companies said.
In addition to simplifying the Medicare plan selection, enrollment and management process for clients, Envestnet’s integration with Healthpilot “merges health insurance coverage and healthcare expense estimates — a key area of focus for clients nearing or in retirement — into the hyper-personalized, holistic digital experience enabled by Envestnet,” the companies said.
Clients can enroll directly in their chosen Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement or Medicare Prescription Drug coverage option online in under 15 minutes, the firms said.
Based on the client’s insurance plan selection, the estimated out-of-pocket expenses and estimated savings are automatically relayed back to the advisor for incorporation into a financial plan for the client.
Healthpilot will regularly monitor changes to clients’ health needs and modifications to health plans made by insurers and communicate the updates to clients.
GeoWealth Adds Franklin Templeton Model Portfolios
Franklin Templeton Model Portfolios have been added to GeoWealth’s turnkey asset management program for advisors, the companies said Thursday.
GeoWealth’s open-architecture TAMP supports advisor-managed and third-party model portfolios, helping RIAs to achieve and maintain scale while delivering custom solutions to investors.
The multi-asset model portfolios are managed by Franklin Templeton Investment Solutions and “represent their best thinking in model portfolio construction and underlying fund selection,” the companies said in a joint announcement.
