Benestream Announces Partnership with Walton to Bring New Cost-Savings Program to Businesses

Partnership combines Walton’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit platform with BeneStream’s Medicaid Migration™ product.

New York, NY, June 1, 2016 – BeneStream today announced a partnership with Walton, a leading provider of tax credit and incentive consulting services. This relationship will enable the seamless incorporation of BeneStream’s signature product, Medicaid Migration™ into Walton’s award-winning Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) screening technology platform.

BeneStream is a health technology company that reduces costs for businesses by connecting qualified employees to government benefits including Medicaid for the Workplace and CHIP. Walton identifies, secures, and administers Federal and State tax credit and incentive (TCI) opportunities for business ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to promising new ventures.

“Our goal is to help our clients maximize the myriad of tax credit, and discretionary and statutory incentive opportunities afforded by the federal, state, and local governments to encourage their growth and success,” said Phil Ownbey, Walton. “We are committed to working with best-in-class industry leaders and BeneStream’s Medicaid Migration™ is the type of innovative product that Walton is proud to bring to our clients and integrate with our products.”

Businesses should think of WOTC and Medicaid as complementary benefits since they impact similar groups of employees. Walton is a driving force within the WOTC industry, and we are excited to combine our efforts to benefit businesses everywhere. Our product reduces costs for our clients while lowering turnover and providing quality benefits to employees,” said Ben Geyerhahn, CEO of BeneStream.

Medicaid Migration™ saves employees the cost of insuring qualified employees by helping them access affordable, quality health coverage. An employee in a household of four earning up to $33,500 may qualify for Medicaid. WOTC targets individuals in a similar population. Eligible individuals may include welfare and food stamp recipients as well as veterans who are re-entering the work force. By integrating Medicaid screening questions into its WOTC platform, Walton can easily screen and identify candidates who qualify for WOTC as well as for potential health insurance through Medicaid.

Walton’s WOTC screening solutions save employers up to $9,600 per eligible employee, and average Medicaid Migration™ savings can range from $4,000 to $10,000 per employee annually.
