eHealth, Inc. Partners With Aon Hewitt to Help Employees Enroll in Individual 
Health Insurance 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/13 --   eHealth, Inc.
(NASDAQ: EHTH), the nation's leading private online health insurance
exchange for individual and family health insurance, today announced
it is partnering with Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and
health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), to provide
enrollment services to employees of Aon Hewitt's clients who choose
to enroll in individual health insurance coverage. 
Through the partnership, employees of Aon Hewitt's clients who are
not eligible for employer-provided benefits may access eHealth's
leading online marketplace to find, compare and buy the health
insurance plan(s) that best fit their individual or family needs.
Employees will also have access to customer support through eHealth's
world-class customer care center, offering phone support 363 days a
year and 24/7 online support. 
Additionally, eligible employees in some states may be able to enroll
in qualified health plans available through one or more state
insurance exchanges if eHealth receives authorization to assist
consumers in this capacity and after implementation of this
eHealth's partnership complements the services offered through Aon
Hewitt's Your Coverage Resources solution, which is an interactive
and educational website that helps individuals learn about the
various public health programs available to them and model program
eligibility -- including whether they qualify for a subsidy in a
state exchange. 
"Achieving the Affordable Care Act's goal of 100 percent enrollment
is an effort that will require outreach and education from all
corners, and employers will play a critical role in getting the word
out," said eHealth President and Chief Operating Officer Bill
Shaughnessy. "Aon Hewitt's partnership with eHealth will help reach
and enroll as many employees as possible by combining our
user-friendly national marketplace and Aon Hewitt's broad base of mid
and large-size employers." 
"Under the Affordable Care Act, many of our clients now have large
employee populations who are eligible to enroll in health insurance
through the individual market, including state and federal excha
and they are looking for help in guiding employees through the
process," said Karen Frost, Vice President of Health Solutions &
Strategies for Aon Hewitt. "Aon Hewitt's Your Coverage Resources
solution, coupled with the services and tools offered by eHealth,
will enable employers to offer these individuals a comprehensive
resource that helps guide them through all elements of the
decision-making process -- from knowing and understanding their
options to determining their eligibility and ultimately enrolling in
a plan that's right for them and their families."
