WHAT IS THE MAXWELL MARKETPLACE?
The Maxwell Marketplace is all about connectivity and connecting you to the solutions and partners you need to make your job easier. We partner with leading products to add value to your benefits offering and connect your employee benefits data to the systems you need to get your work done fast and efficiently.
Maxwell offers both financial (COBRA, FSA/DCA, HRA, HSA, and commuter) connectivity and lifestyle (telemedicine, ID theft, and health concierge services) add-ons. The Maxwell Marketplace provides brokers with relevant solutions to strengthen their consultative value proposition and help solidify their role as an irreplaceable resource. These are valuable products that data shows employees are asking for!
FINANCIAL & COBRA
Maxwell Health is able to connect with any financial or COBRA vendor that can accept our standard EDI file. If your clients offer financial benefits (HSA, HRA, FSA, LFSA, TSA) through Maxwell, or work with a COBRA administrator, we can set up an EDI connection that will securely and accurately send enrollment and demographic information from the Maxwell system directly to that vendor’s system.
- The financial files will include annual contribution amounts only and not per pay period contributions.
- The COBRA files will consist of two files:
1. The Initial Enrollee File will include all newly eligible employees (and covered dependents) who have elected (confirmed) medical, dental, vision, FSA, or HRA products. This will let the vendor know to send the initial general notice to inform employees and covered dependents of their COBRA rights.
2. The Qualifying Event File will include all employees and/or dependents with new COBRA qualifying events, and their associated product and demographic information. To be included in the file, the employee must be marked COBRA-eligible due to a qualifying event in Maxwell. After the vendor receives the file, they’ll take care of the rest! Depending on the vendor, this can include sending qualified beneficiaries election notices, managing coverage elections, and offering an online account where COBRA enrollees can access information about their coverage and make payments. Of course, the vendor will also communicate all coverage information to insurance carriers, including any changes.
If the vendor has partnered with the Maxwell Marketplace, there will be no charge for connectivity.
If the vendor is not a Maxwell Marketplace partner, there will be an EDI charge for each connection.
- If you’re a Maxwell Health + Sun Life integrated client: $0.50 Per Eligible Per Month

ACA Reporting Service and BenefitScape
ACA Compliance Data Extract
- Maxwell’s built-in ACA tool helps Brokers and Clients meet the compliance requirements of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) employer mandate. The employer mandate requires large employers to offer coverage to employees and their dependents. To demonstrate that they have done this and are in compliance, employers must file IRS forms on an annual basis.
- Much of the employee data they will need to comply with the employer mandate is already stored in the Maxwell Health portal. The ACA tool in the platform allows brokers and clients access to this existing information to use for IRS reporting.
- The Manage ACA tool provides links to information and a way to contact our ACA compliance partners: ACA Reporting Service and BenefitScape. These best-in-class firms are regulatory experts on ACA requirements and can:
- Provide guidance and support on meeting the law's employer mandate (Section 6055 and 6056), reducing your risk of fines and fees.
- Complete and file 1094 and 1095 forms with the IRS, and facilitate sending written statements to employees.
- Track employee hours and attendance to ensure you're offering coverage to all eligible employees under the law.

Maxwell Health securely and accurately sends enrollment and demographic information from the Maxwell system directly to the vendor’s system. Lifestyle connectivity will be turned on prior to portal delivery. Once Open Enrollment is complete, all employees who are enrolled in the product will begin to be transmitted to the vendor. Any changes that are made to an employee’s profile in the Maxwell Health portal will be updated in the vendor’s system on the next eligibility file that is sent over.
If subscribing through the Maxwell Marketplace, there will be no charge for Lifestyle connectivity. Lifestyle products come with preferred pricing and broker commissions.
