Benalign, a Denver, Colorado-based perks and non-traditional benefits provider, works with affinity organizations, associations, and other membership groups to design and customize a member benefits portfolio of individual products and services to fit the needs of the membership of those organizations. For TheFilipinoHero, specific product offerings were designed to provide ease of access and valuable resource of health benefits for Filipinos within the United States that need a support structure and means to access products and services in the most cost-effective manner.

Product offerings available under the Hero Benefits program include primary care and mental health telemedicine with Filipino language translation available, a $0 copay prescription program, access to a cost-effective consumer lab program, individual dental, vision, and supplemental health products, credit and ID theft protection, and an array of other individual products and services available for members of TheFilipinoHero to select from to assist them in their day-to-day work and home life.

“The addition of the Hero Benefits portfolio of products and services will be life changing for our members in providing resources and services tailored for their real-life needs,” stated Jocelyn Hansen, Founder and Principal of TheFilipinoHero. “We will continually be looking for additional products and services that meet the needs of our members to support them and make their life a little bit easier.” 

The Hero Benefits program is focused on the US market currently, but the plan is to expand product and service offerings to Canada and other countries over time. More information can be found at
