CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - July 22, 2009) - All over the country, businesses and their human resources departments are searching for innovative ways to ease financial hardship and continue to offer benefits and 'perks' for their hard-working employees.

PerkSpot does just that, offering workers in some of the largest companies and organizations in the country discounts for items such as computers, retail purchases, and vacation trips.

Now PerkSpot is expanding their benefits reach into health insurance by partnering with GoHealthInsurance Workplace. As a Workplace partner, members in PerkSpot's employee benefits program will have free access to GoHealthInsurance's tools -- making it easy to find quality, affordable health insurance.

"PerkSpot recognizes health insurance is something that every worker, employee, and even employer needs to have," said Scott Sullivan, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Norvax, Inc., GoHealthInsurance.com's parent company. "GoHealthInsurance Workplace is a tool designed to simplify the process of buying individual health insurance, especially for those who might be shopping for insurance for the first time."

The tools now available for PerkSpot members include the Instant Quote Engine, which is used by thousands of agents across the country, where members can request unlimited and free health insurance quotes.

In addition, members will also have access to a licensed GoHealthInsurance agent for advice and a free one-on-one benefits consultation.

"One of the biggest advantages of Workplace is the ability to connect with a trusted advisor who can help navigate the way through the entire shopping process," added Sullivan.
