benefitexpress is a U.S. headquartered provider of H&W administration services and health exchange services, based in Schaumburg, Illinois. 

benefitexpress first was formed in 2001 as an H&W administration SaaS provider dedicated to H&W administration. It has been steadily growing its service offerings, and today it offers comprehensive benefits outsourcing services dedicated to servicing the North American market.  In March 2016, LLR Partners ("LLR"), a Philadelphia-based private equity investment firm, acquired benefitexpress. Following the acquisition, it grew its leadership team bringing expertise from large outsourcing vendors like Mercer, Willis Towers Watson, AonHewitt, and Fidelity to shape its strategy. Since the acquisition, it has continued to develop its proprietary technology, My Benefit Express™, enhancing its user experience, building a recommendation engine, developing a lifestyle benefits marketplace and mobile app, expanding communications tools, and growing its leadership team.

In August 2016, it acquired a software company, benefitsCONNECT, to expand its broker relationships and acquired a large number of small-market sized clients. This expanded its broker relationships by 150. benefitsCONNECT is designed to be a hands-on solution for small market employers with less than 1,500 benefits-eligible lives. In this service model, the client or supporting broker handles most aspects of administration such as reviewing pending items, managing day to day EDI transmissions and discrepancy reports, and sending employee communications.

benefitexpress today is a private company with ~350 employees and targets organizations operating in the U.S. with between 2k to 15k employees. It has ~80 fully outsourced benefits administration clients supporting 1.5m participants and dependents. Additionally, it supports ~3,000 small-market employer groups with ~1.8m participants and dependents through its HR Support and licensed technology models.
