This integration provides insurance agencies access to hundreds of carrier plans.

CEDAR FALLS, IA: AgencyBloc, provider of insurance growth enablement solutions catering to the health, senior, and benefits industries, has partnered with Ideon, provider of application program interface (API) solutions that connect insurtechs and insurance carriers in the health and benefits industry.

In the health and group benefits sector, accessing carrier products and data efficiently is especially challenging for insurance agencies. The traditional approach of navigating multiple carrier websites is time-consuming and prone to missed opportunities. However, the collaboration between Ideon and AgencyBloc solves this challenge by integrating real-time data from Ideon’s carrier network into the AgencyBloc Quote+ platform.

“Ideon’s API has proven instrumental in our efforts to bolster the visibility of group benefit options for agencies, while simultaneously broadening distribution channels for carriers," said Bob Burns, Chief Product Officer at AgencyBloc. "This innovative partnership has enhanced our approach to connecting agencies with carrier products, facilitating seamless collaboration and overall efficiency in group benefit selection and enrollment.”

AgencyBloc’s Quote+ platform empowers over 5,500 insurance agencies with a comprehensive solution to quote, compare, and enroll group benefit plans for employers. In an era where employers prioritize affordable yet comprehensive options for their employees, Quote+ leads the way in facilitating these choices.
