Maternal Support, Fertility and Family Building Coverage Among Most Requested Wellbeing Benefits
DENVER – May 19, 2021 – Family planning and fertility benefits are becoming more mainstream with employers seeking to demonstrate inclusivity and attract or retain talent. As women become mothers later in their career and same-sex couples or single people seek to have children, there has been greater interest and expectations for these benefits. Welltok, the consumer activation company, proudly announced today the addition of Maven and Progyny (Nasdaq: PGNY) to its curated and pre-integrated Connect Partner Ecosystem, making it easier for employer and health plan clients to offer these in-demand programs.
