Mercer Expands Benefits Outsourcing Solution

June 11, 2009 ( - Mercer announced it is expanding its health and benefits administration outsourcing platform to offer a standardized full outsourcing solution for clients with 5,000 to 10,000 employees.

In addition to recordkeeping services, a call center, and a benefits Web site, the solution will provide clients with reporting capabilities, employee selection and modeling tools, and employee communication services, according to the announcement. Mercer said that since it administers all health and benefits clients – regardless of size – on the same platform, any client’s future growth can be accommodated without the time and resources often associated with converting to a different administrative system.

Target clients for the Mercer solution include those that are looking to make an initial entry into the outsourcing market, move from a co-sourced arrangement, or are looking to simplify plan designs and administrative policies and procedures, the announcement said.
