TouchCare and Picwell Partner to Simplify Plan Selection and Enhance Decision Support
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Healthcare concierge service, TouchCare, announced its partnership with Picwell.

Utilizing big data, artificial intelligence, and economic models, Picwell provides accurate plan recommendations and cost analysis (including out-of-pocket-cost & premiums) to ensure that employees select a plan that best fits their healthcare needs.
Combined with TouchCare’s compassionate concierge services provided by healthcare experts, employees receive unlimited access to personalized benefits guidance and support that optimizes their coverage at the best value. The partnership strives to alleviate the confusion and concerns employees often encounter when selecting their health and benefits plans. After receiving scored matches based on a brief questionnaire, employees have access to expert Health Assistants who are available for one-to-one consultations to support employees who might have more complex questions about their recommended plan offerings.
TouchCare’s expert concierge services paired with Picwell’s AI-powered technology and data-driven resources empower employees to make smarter decisions and ensure that they choose the best plan for themselves and their families. Educating your employees isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. Some employees will do best with AI-powered technology; some need to talk to a human. With this new partnership, you can address the needs of your entire employee population and ensure employees pick the right plan, translating to an average savings of $500 per employee per year for the employer.
