League Introduces Health Insurance Products for Canadian Businesses

Startup partners with RBC Insurance to offer the best in health benefits

TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2016 /CNW/ - Today League, the digital alternative to traditional health insurance, is introducing a full suite of insurance products to its robust portfolio of health benefits, offering unprecedented choice, convenience and value to small businesses.

League has selected RBC Insurance as its first partner to underwrite its expanded offerings, which now incorporates a "peace-of-mind plan" that provides comprehensive coverage for unexpected emergencies, as well as a range of group life and health insurance products, including life, accidental death and dismemberment, and disability coverage. These insurance products are available through League Insurance Agency Inc., the licensed subsidiary of League.

"It's about time a 100 per cent digital experience came to the health benefits market. League's platform connects healthcare providers, employers, and consumers to provide a comprehensive digital health benefits experience," said Michael Serbinis, CEO and founder of League.  "As one of Canada's most trusted insurers, RBC Insurance is an ideal carrier for us to launch our service with." 

Adding this selection of fully insured products to the League digital platform – which includes digital health spending accounts, lifestyle spending accounts and workplace health services – provides businesses the flexibility to build the benefits plan that is right for them and for their employees. Employees access their benefits through the League app, which provides a frictionless experience for easy access to health professionals, secure messaging, real-time booking and digital payments with the League digital wallet, eliminating the need to fill out paper forms.

"League continues to evolve employee benefits for small and medium sized businesses with its innovative, consumer-first approach. We recognize businesses are looking for more flexibility which is why we worked with League to create a tailored group benefits package specifically designed for their portfolio," said John Carinci, head, group & business markets, RBC Insurance. "RBC Insurance is dedicated to developing innovative insurance offerings and we are excited to work with League to deliver the solutions that Canadian businesses need to thrive."
