Lumity, a data driven benefits platform, today announced $14M in Series A funding led by The Social+Capital Partnership with participation from True Ventures and Rock Health. As a broker, Lumity's free software and dedicated support staff helps employers and their employees intelligently and cost-efficiently manage their health insurance needs by offering plans and benefits specifically tailored to each customer. The funding will help Lumity propel and scale the rollout of its data-driven benefits platform.

'With Social + Capital Partnership's funding we're excited to continue expanding our mission to help employers finally create health plans that make sense for their business, and most importantly, their employees,' says Tariq Hilaly, Lumity's co-founder and CEO. 'Ninety-nine percent of businesses in America have fewer than 500 employees, and they're in the middle of a perfect storm. They're getting hit hardest with rising health insurance premiums, with many employees now paying up to 40% of the cost of their healthcare. On top of that, the confusing array of plan choices lead many to over- or under-insure relative to their needs, collectively costing them over $40 billion every year. Lumity makes these complex decisions easy and saves employers and employees 20-30% -- without compromising benefits.'

Now more than ever, employers and employees need to use data to collaborate on benefits decisions that create more value and increase accountability for every dollar they spend. With sophisticated risk models and easy-to-use decisioning tools, Lumity's SaaS solution and dedicated customer support is available to companies that typically are not big enough to afford access to these services. As a broker, Lumity monetizes through insurance commissions and provides its software and professional services at no additional cost to its customers.

'Through data science, Lumity is providing businesses with visibility into their rising health insurance costs, and empowering them with critical insights that can drive cost savings in a way that benefits both employee well-being and the company's bottom line,' says Mamoon Hamid, Co-Founder and General Partner at The Social+Capital Partnership.

'Lumity made it easy for us to migrate off Trinet, saved us 34% in pure apple-to-apple health plan savings, and made our employees better off in the process,' said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation. 'We can allocate more resources to hiring with the $400,000 we saved. It's time a company like Lumity stepped in to help employers and employees use data to drive these kinds of critical decisions that affect their ability to get affordable access to healthcare.'

Lumity's risk models provide employers with an accurate picture of the aggregate health of a company, helping employers determine whether full or self-insurance options are the most cost-effective choices for their group. Armed with these sophisticated insights, the company's proprietary health plan recommendation engine provides customized health expense estimates at the employee and company level, matching the right health plans and benefits to specific needs. Lumity works closely with all the major national carriers as well as the hundreds of national prescription benefits managers.
