New quoting platform available on any mobile device or desktop will enable carriers, brokers and consumers in more states an improved ‘quote and compare’ experience when selecting and purchasing health insurance and benefits plans.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Limelight Health today announced the release of QuotePad 2.0, the latest version of the QuotePad quoting platform initially released in January 2015. The release of the new product continues the momentum Limelight Health experienced in 2015. In November, the company attended HealthTech Capital’s HealthTech Conference, where they were named Most Promising HealthTech Company of 2015. In December, Limelight Health’s demo of QuotePad won them first prize at Silicon Valley Innovation Center’s Insurance Disrupted conference; later in December, CB Insights named Limelight as ‘125 Insurance Players You Need to Know.’
QuotePad 2.0 allows health insurance and benefits professionals to quote and compare health benefits information from multiple carriers instantly and easily, from any desktop or mobile device. Running atop Limelight Health’s robust health insurance and benefits plan dataset, QuotePad streamlines the decision-making process by eliminating the need for spreadsheets, traditional underwriting, and time-consuming proposal generation.
The new iteration of QuotePad includes:
- Quote and Compare for Ancillary Benefits: By incorporating ancillary benefits carrier data into the platform, QuotePad 2.0 users can now quote not only medical, but dental, vision and life insurance, further reducing the time involved in comparing, selecting and purchasing a full suite of health insurance and benefits products. QuotePad 2.0 provides instantaneous quoting across these multiple lines of insurance.
- Expanded Geographies: QuotePad 2.0 users will be able to instantly quote some dental, vision and life insurance products in more than 40 states. The tool will also expand medical insurance quoting from Californian carriers, including Anthem BlueCross, Kaiser Permanente, and UnitedHealth, to medical carriers in 5 states by the end of the first quarter of 2016.
- Powerful and Seamless Integration with Users’ Existing Systems: In 2015, Limelight integrated QuotePad 2.0 with other benefits technologies, such as EaseCentral, to create an end-to-end platform for the benefits distribution and administration market. Powered by robust API integration, QuotePad 2.0 leverages this entire dataset to provide enhanced decision-support tools agencies and carriers can build upon to create their own white labeled, customized interfaces, strengthening their brand identity amongst users without interrupting existing workflows.
“The health insurance and benefits industries have been extremely receptive to QuotePad,” said Limelight Health CEO Jason T. Andrew. “QuotePad 2.0 builds on this foundation with new features and wider availability to transform the insurance and benefits process for everyone involved, from quote to proposal generation. I’m very excited about the impact QuotePad 2.0 will make among brokers, carriers, employers and consumers as we continue our growth in 2016.”
“Using QuotePad allows us to securely integrate our internal automation tools, CRM, and client facing portals to provide the correct plan and rate information to our customers while streamlining our operations,” said Dennis Carlson, CEO and President of Bespoke Benefits. “The ability to quote and model plan options and contributions on the fly makes us look like rock stars in prospect and client meetings.”

QuotePad 2.0 has standard pricing for users listed on their website. A discounted rate is offered to members of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) and the California Association of Health Underwriters (CAHU).
