Choosing benefits is a complex decision for even the most informed and savvy consumer. And it’s a choice that people face each year. Picwell simplifies this decision and gives peace of mind to individuals enrolling in benefits.
Getting individuals the right benefits is essential for every interaction that follows. Without access to appropriate coverage and aligned financial incentives, the opportunity to engage that person is challenging. With Picwell, you can set individuals up for success from the start with a positive experience, setting the tone for a long-term, positive relationship.
We’ve developed a comprehensive offering to enhance the benefits lifecycle, including consumer experience, planning, population management, and workflow.
Plan Selection and Decision Support
Our cornerstone offering is a SaaS decision support product that matches individuals to the right plan during enrollment by predicting future care considerations, estimating out-of-pocket expenses, and accounting for personal preferences.
Using a few data points, our product analyzes enrollee-specific attributes against all available options to identify and recommend the right benefits for each individual. The results are rank ordered and include additional key details that can be customized. In addition, the results can show the best comprehensive package of benefits.
Our product is an application programming interface (API), so you maintain control of the experience and have the flexibility to integrate easily into any existing system environment, including direct-to-consumer portals, call center platforms, and more.Schedule A Demo

How it works
Cutting-Edge Data Science
Most algorithm-based decision support solutions focus on overly simplistic decision rules or cost-focused models. These solutions often gloss over important insurance-specific information, or lack behavioral and market-specific factors, for a personalized, predictive recommendation. This leaves consumers dissatisfied and disengaged from their healthcare experience. And at worst, consumers make poor financial and health decisions.
Our approach uses advanced data science methods, including machine learning and behavioral economics, to evaluate the many factors that consumers care about, and produces a holistic set of predictive outcomes. This approach was developed by industry-leading experts and has diverse application across the benefits lifecycle.
Assess and predict financial risk for individuals and groups
Our data represents billions of medical claims for more than 40 million people, across multiple years of healthcare use in the U.S. Machine learning tools constantly assess this data to build predictions, which become increasingly precise as the data evolves. While there are many advantages to this approach, this means we don’t require historical claims data from each client.
Address the ‘fine print’ associated with each benefits plan
In order to understand the value of specific benefits, and all of the different potential outcomes, we use techniques to transform the distribution of risks that an individual or group has against a distribution of outcomes associated with each benefits option.
Match consumers to the right benefits with behavioral economics
Benefit features such as risk protection, provider networks, and objective quality measurements all impact the total value that consumers derive from the benefits. Combining consumer insights with the financial value of each benefits plan provides a comprehensive, personalized view that recognizes unique needs and preferences.
