Orange, CA – June 22, 2010 –CHOICE Administrators®, Inc. (CHOICE Administrators) and E-chx, Inc. (subsequently Ovation Payroll Inc.) announced today the co-branding of CHOICE Administrators Payroll Services, an exclusive payroll product for the health insurance market, powered by E-chx, one of the nation’s largest independent payroll services. CHOICE Administrators Payroll Services is available to businesses nationwide and provides a hassle-free payroll solution that includes payroll processing, direct deposit, check signing/stuffing, and customizable reporting. Discounts are also available for insurance brokers and employers who enroll through www.choiceadmin.com/payroll.
CHOICE Administrators also announced its “integrated” payroll option through their CaliforniaChoice health insurance Exchange, available to businesses with 2 – 50 employees. This seamless approach to health insurance benefits and payroll provides employers with a single platform that coordinates changes such as employee additions, terminations, protecting them from unnecessary and costly errors throughout the year.
“Integrating health insurance benefits and payroll is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Ron Goldstein, President of CHOICE Administrators. “Our partnership with E-chx allows licensed brokers to offer everything their clients need in one place, without the worry of another company competing for their business.”
Based out of Rochester, New York, E-chx, has provided quality payroll solutions for almost a decade. “With the increasing competition producers have seen from various marketing companies, including payroll processors, CHOICE Administrators sought a payroll integration solution that is not a competitor, yet provides data integration of payroll and employee benefits,” stated Tony Totorella, President of E-chx, “ E-chx does not sell or market insurance and has a business model that commits itself to not entering into the insurance market as an agent or agency.”

“This is an amazing opportunity for producers to offer payroll alongside their clients’ health insurance benefits, and do it with a company they trust has their best interest in mind.” said Goldstein. “Our company was built by brokers for brokers and we take that relationship very seriously.
As the nation’s leading developer and administrator of private healthcare and ancillary Exchanges, CHOICE Administrators serves more than 160,000 members through nearly 10,000 employers.
