In choosing Castlight Health, Allegis Group now offers its internal employees a way to identify and select the best health care options within their consumer-directed health plans, both from a cost and quality perspective.
After a competitive review of available transparency offerings, Allegis Group chose Castlight for its rich technology and data, expert team and constant pace of innovation. Castlight provides users critical insight into the specific costs of common health care procedures, quality of providers and helpful educational and convenience data. With the Castlight Health platform, Allegis Group employees will be able to actively control their health care planning and spending.
