CieloStar Expands its Growing Network of Partnerships

Minneapolis, MN, March 25, 2015 – - CieloStar, a leading nationwide healthcare benefit distribution, private health exchange and payment technology company, announced today that it has partnered with Worksite Benefit Services to extend the private healthcare exchange concept. The “Worksite Benefit Services Private Exchange” will offer an exclusive pricing arrangement that allows Worksite Benefit Services to expand their self-service enrollment capabilities and add carrier connectivity and aggregated carrier billing to their list of services at a fraction of the cost of providing these services by other means.

“The WBS partnership with CieloStar will allow WBS to provide even more tools for administration of employee enrollment and communications,” said William Mehus, Executive Chairman of Cielostar. “Our partnership with WBS now adds CieloStar’s BenefitReady® program and our reliable technology to their offerings to employers in the most cost-effective way possible.”

The CieloStar suite of services and tools will complement Worksite Benefit Services’ strong employee benefits and employee communications services with online portals for employers and employees, and create integration in employer benefit programs.

“Human Resources professionals will appreciate the benefits portal and the ease with which they and their employees can manage the enrollment process,” added Mehus. “Employees will have the ability to manage all information related to dependents and beneficiaries, as well as access a ‘Knowledge Base’ menu of client-specific links and forms.” Mehus noted that Cielostar’s BenefitReady® platform facilitates the collection, management, processing, and transfer of all the pertinent data that is typically involved with benefits administration.
