League has announced new insurance partners along with the launch of new healthcare products and services.

The company has added RBCI, AETNA, Humana, Cigna, United Healthcare and MetLife as partners in the US and Canada, allowing it to include fully insured plans in addition to defined contribution plans. RBC was notably the company’s first insurance partner in October 2016, and added unexpected emergencies, including life, accidental death and dismemberment, and disability coverage to its platform following the partnership.

The company has also added Headspace, Adidas, Weight Watchers, GoodLife, and Well.ca as partners in its health marketplace, which allows members to search, book, and rate healthcare providers and services. The marketplace also allows members to receive special offers and discounts on health-related items, and pay with a digital wallet that connected to their health benefit plans.

“League is a modern-day broker and TPA with a next-generation experience, offering employers the flexibility that they need to evolve with the changing requirements of their teams,” said Michael Serbinis, founder and CEO. “By bringing on additional partners, we are able to help employers of all sizes with multiple plan designs, consultative services, and an expanded product offering that allows them to build the plan that’s right for them and their employees. Whether it’s a simple plan with drug and dental coverage, or complex administrative services only (ASO) partnerships, these alliances with leaders in the insurance space makes League the ultimate one-stop-shop for employers looking to give their teams the best in health benefits.”

League has officially launched its health concierge, which allows users to contact registered nurses and doctors through mobile chat. The feature was first announced in July as a partnership with Montreal-based Dialogue, which is powering the solution in BC and Ontario.

The companies are both companies backed by Power Financial — Dialogue received funding from Power-backed Portag3 Ventures for its $4 million Series A, while Power participated in League’s $32 million Series A — which has had its investee companies partner to lower the costs of customer acquisition.

Over the summer, League launched in the US with bold ambitions to raise a $100 million USD round by next year.
