EmployerDirect Adds Donald Benson to Board of Directors

EmployerDirect, a value-based healthcare company that helps self-insured employers provide transparency for quality and cost of employees' medical procedures, added Donald T. Benson to its board of directors.

Mr. Benson is chairman of the board for a managed service and technology company and chairman of the audit committee for a large mutual fund company. He also serves on the boards of healthcare and telecommunications companies. Previously, Mr. Benson has served in senior executive positions for companies such as Cigna, Aetna and Coventry Health Care.

He was also manager of command and control systems for the Pentagon, White House and Pacific Theater.

"We look forward to benefiting from Don's 45 years of experience with Fortune 500 companies in the defense, insurance, financial services, healthcare and real estate industries," said EmployerDirect CEO Thomas Johnson.

EmployerDirect can help self-funded employer health plan members save 30 percent to 50 percent on planned medical procedures with the potential to reduce total plan cost by 6 percent to 10 percent. The company also offers SurgeryPlus, which assists covered members in electing a provider, scheduling a procedure, transferring medical records, coordinating travel and negotiating surgery costs before the procedure.
