Mercer Marketplace

Mercer L.L.C. on Tuesday expanded Mercer Marketplace, which will offer benefits to meet the needs of an employer's entire workforce, including part-time employees.

Employers who join Mercer Marketplace will have the option to offer access to individual medical plans both inside and outside the public exchanges for their employees and retirees who do not qualify for sponsored plans, the New York-based consulting firm said in a statement.

“Most employers don't have a single, uniform workforce, but a collection of different groups — including part-timers and retirees, each with a very different set of benefit needs,” said Julio A. Portalatin, Mercer's president and CEO, in the statement. “Now, Mercer Marketplace can meet all of these needs through a single point of access.”

Palo Alto, Calif.-based will provide the customers employees with access to individual medical plans both on and off the public exchanges, according to the statement.
