King of Prussia, PA, July 18, 2000 America's Choice Healthplans, the first national online benefits administrator, has joined forces with ScreamingMedia, an aggregator and e-distributor of digital content on the Web, to make the America's Choice Healthplans Web site a prime source of health news for its clients and members.  In addition to delivering daily updates on individual client and member histories, the Web site will be updated daily with health and healthcare-related news articles provided by ScreamingMedia beginning on July 18.

            ScreamingMedia will provide America's Choice Healthplans with 125 news articles every month culled from the providers in its extensive Digital Content Network.  America's Choice Healthplans will post the articles in both the clients' and members' sections of its Web site, as well as posting stories for the general public on the ACHonline.com home page (www.ACHonline.com).

News stories appearing on the private client (human resources and benefits administrators) section will be chosen specifically to update the industry's developments in employee benefits, health insurance, and pending legislation.  Articles posted in the members' private area will focus on consumer health issues, including new treatments, discoveries, and nutrition.

“It is important for our clients and members to have access to the news that affects not only their benefits, but their lives,” says America's Choice Healthplans CEO Clelland Green.  “Our mission at America's Choice Healthplans is to become a total source for our clients' and members' health and healthcare information needs.  We want them to come to ACHonline.com not just when they have claims or want to check on their own benefits histories, but also to use it as a broader utility so they can always be aware of the health issues affecting them and their families.  We are pleased to partner with ScreamingMedia and have them deliver this content to our users.”

By simply logging onto America's Choice Healthplans' Web site (http://www.ACHonline.com), plan members can easily review and monitor claims, employee eligibility, and locate medical providers nationwide.  Serving more than 60,000 members and 300 client firms, America's Choice Healthplans enables employees to log on and find participating healthcare providers, review their claims and eligibility, make dependent status changes or request additional ID cards, as well as find detailed information regarding their benefits.
