Frequently asked questions
Can my clients purchase your programs a la carte or do they need to buy all of them?
Your clients can purchase our programs in bundles or standalone. We can even create packages that meet their unique needs. Our research shows that when services are integrated, engagement increases and costs are reduced.
My staff is often overwhelmed with member calls about their programs. Can you help with that?
Yes. Once you sell our programs to a group, we take that burden off of your plate. Our experts are highly trained in the complex healthcare and benefits systems and can provide excellent customer service to your members. This frees up your teams to focus on sales and building your business.
What is the length of Health Advocate’s standard contract?
Our standard Plan Sponsor Agreement is for 36 months (3 years), with an automatic 3-year renewal. We do have some term flexibility, so please direct any questions to your Health Advocate sales representative.
How are your products/services priced?
Health Advocate’s solutions are available on a per-employee, per-month (PEPM) pricing arrangement. Pricing is based on the product(s) selected and group size. Many Broker/Consultant groups have negotiated rates with us.
Can Brokers/Consultants pick up the cost of Health Advocate for their clients?
Yes. Health Advocate’s services can be paid for by the plan sponsor/client or Broker/Consultant.

Commissions are not built into individual product pricing. Contact our Sales Department at 866.799.2655 for information about becoming a participating distributor.
How often does billing occur?
Billing frequency is based on group size (noted on the Installation Form). Billing amount is based on submitted census counts.

How do I get a quote?
Call 866.799.2655 or email info@HealthAdvocate.com with any questions or to obtain a quote.
How do I make sure that my client's employees use your services?
The best way to ensure utilization is to have a communications plan that fits their needs.
Each employer is different and so are their employees. We like to work with our clients to implement a communications and awareness program that fits their needs. For example, some clients prefer to email their employees while others like to send hard-copy communications to their employees’ homes.
It is also important that we make sure their employees know how to access their Health Advocate website and mobile app. This way they can get information and updates on-the-go.
