March 15, 2016
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 15, 2016 – Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE:CSLT), a leading health benefits platform provider, today announced that Pomeroy, an IT infrastructure service provider, has saved nearly $3 million in healthcare related costs by rolling out Castlight’s health benefits platform. The company also saw 30% lower healthcare costs per-employee per year when compared to the national average.
Pomeroy provides high-quality IT infrastructure services to clients based in North America, Latin America and Europe, with a workforce of more than 3500 employees. The company’s portfolio of managed infrastructure services includes a range of end-user, network, data center, and cloud services.
Pomeroy turned to Castlight after deciding to eliminate its preferred provider organization (PPO) option and implement a full replacement, high-deductible health plan (HDHP). As part of the transition, Pomeroy offers Castlight’s health benefits platform to provide a simple, personalized and powerful way for employees to make better healthcare decisions. Additionally, Pomeroy utilizes the Castlight platform as a one-stop solution, promoting other health and wellness benefits offered to its employees.
“Castlight not only serves our employees by helping them keep their costs down but also by educating them about healthcare in general,” said Kristi Nelson, general counsel and senior vice president of shared business services at Pomeroy. “Our employees now have the tools, technologies and platform they need to become better healthcare consumers. The more we educate and engage, the better our health and wellness programs will be.”
Pomeroy has adopted Castlight’s health benefits platform to drive the significant employee engagement and education needed for the new plan’s success. As a result of its relationship with Castlight Health, Pomeroy has experienced an increase in employees contributing to their health savings accounts (HSA), with more than 70 percent of employees participating.
“It is a privilege to have a forward-thinking customer like Pomeroy on the Castlight health benefits platform. Our mission is to empower people to make the best choices for their health, and help companies make the most of their health benefits,” said Giovanni Colella, MD, co-founder and CEO at Castlight Health. “We are thrilled to see that with Castlight, Pomeroy has not only lowered healthcare costs, but more importantly, has driven engagement and enthusiasm from its employees.”
