Catch Introduces Health Insurance Marketplace, alongside Retirement, and Tax Withholding

November 5, 2019 GMT

BOSTON, Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, over 80 million Americans do not have access to employer sponsored benefits leaving them in a vulnerable position. Additionally, 21% of Americans have saved $0 for retirement, and 27 million Americans lack health insurance.

Using Catch, individuals are able to own and manage their benefits in one place without an employer sponsor.

Users build a benefits plan where they determine what percentage of their income to allocate to benefits like tax withholding, and retirement. Each time they’re paid – functionality built around an individual’s income volatility – they’re able to automatically contribute to their plan. For high deductible health plans, individuals are able to contribute to a savings account to ensure they’re preparing for emergencies.

For the 15 million people who use Healthcare.gov to access individual health insurance plans, Catch offers:

Existing health insurance marketplaces in the private sector target individuals and families through an aggressive sales cycle and call centers, working to push health insurance plans to receive a commission. Catch, alternatively, focuses on serving users through online chat with licensed health agents who aren’t paid through commission. The business is designed with self-employed individuals in mind.

“Our company is solving a growing need as millions of individuals look at freelancing and side gigs within the demand economy to earn additional revenue or work for themselves,” says Andrew Ambrosino, Catch’s CEO.
