The company has appointed industry leader and healthcare innovator Brian Ancell as its US president to lead its national growth efforts. Ancell has spent his career in healthcare, most recently as the president of WellTok Inc. and executive vice president of Premera Blue Cross. Founded with a vision to change a complex, overwhelming health benefits system, League is dedicated to simplifying and modernizing the benefits experience for SMBs and their employees. "It's time to give consumers the right access, information and financial incentives to make educated choices about their personal health within our health care system, despite what changes may take place," said Ancell. "If we give employers and consumers the right tools, they will shape the future of health care in our country." League is redefining the traditional experience with its consumer-first digital platform that enables users to build the health plan that's right for them, rather than accepting the "one-size-fits-none" model that exists today. Features include unrestricted health and lifestyle accounts, paperless transactions and a pay-per-use model where employers only pay for what their teams use. The company also helps employers bring health into the workplace by providing onsite services that people want to use, such as yoga, biometric screenings and mental health programs. "League is changing an antiquated industry by putting more access and control in the hands of the consumer and creating a product that is tailored to their unique health and wellness needs," said Mike Serbinis, founder and CEO, League Inc. "It's about dragging the industry out of the stone age. More than 155 million Americans rely on their employers for health coverage, but very few find it a meaningful experience. League delivers an integrated solution that connects the provider, the consumer and the employer – making the experience of health benefits simply better." League is the new digital alternative to traditional health insurance that connects employers and employees to a comprehensive network of health services and benefits, giving them unparalleled choice, convenience and value. League unlocks employee benefits to give everyone the power to act every day and live longer, healthier, happier lives. League Insurance Agency Inc. is a licensed subsidiary of League Inc.
