NFP Health recently enhanced its private benefits exchange solution so that it can be leveraged by any carrier, as well as by state-operated public exchanges, to meet the increasing demand for self-service and administrative tools. The enhancements include a full suite of paperless back-office technology, the first of its kind in the marketplace. NFP Health is also working with several insurance plans to develop self-service tools that enable the plans to be offered online using a proven exchange solution.
