Denny Weinberg is an experienced entrepreneur and real estate developer maintaining diverse business interests, such as FocalScan, LLC, and OldInsuranceGuys.com. Since 2014, Denny Weinberg has also managed operations at Hixme in the position of chief executive officer.
Hixme functions as a resource for large businesses with complex employee benefits needs. Hixme provides a number of services as well as information in regard to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). All of the organization’s benefits offerings are not only tax compliant, but fully adhere to strictures set out by the ACA.
Recognizing the nuanced and sometimes confusing nature of ACA requirements, Hixme maintains a convenient, customer friendly support center that connects employers directly to a representative with knowledge in various areas of employee benefits and ACA legislation. Employers are encouraged to discuss any questions they have with a Hixme representative, either before a specific plan has been selected or in the wake of a recent transition.

Denny Weinberg has more than four decades of management and executive experience, having led companies in a diverse range of industries, including real estate, aviation, and health insurance. Since 2014, Denny Weinberg has served as chief executive officer of Hixme, a private health care exchange that has prepared strategically to continue coordinating quality care regardless of the fate of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Despite Obamacare being in danger of repeal in 2017, Hixme plans to continue helping employers reduce benefit costs and helping employees access a network of more than 3,800 plans. The company is based on a business model that keeps it insulated from the fate of Obamacare, which will likely remain controversial throughout 2017.
For years, Hixme has consulted with experienced advisors in Washington in order to be prepared for this scenario. If Congress tries to target the public exchanges and eliminate tax credits in favor of other subsidies, Hixme will be prepared because it has tapped into the broader insurance market beyond the health care exchanges created under Obamacare.
Further, to replace Obamacare, Congress may emphasize more use of pretax savings benefits in an effort to make health care coverage more portable between states. Hixme’s coverage is already portable and is grounded in a “bundling” approach that integrates pretax savings, health insurance, and other banking components.
Hixme plans to continue to provide a variety of options that meet individuals’ need for high-quality, flexible coverage regardless of the fate of Obamacare.
Denny Weinberg’s 25 years of experience in healthcare operations, turnarounds and innovation has been reflected in advanced solutions to companies he has led, clients he has advised and portfolio companies he has directed. Now, as the recently appointed CEO of Hixme, Inc., a venture funded technology and health care startup, Denny Weinberg helps facilitate large employer’s migration through challenges and opportunities brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
HIXME, located in Calabasas, California, was founded and is led by a highly respected team of health benefit and health care professionals with expertise in technology and servicing for larger employer health related benefits. HIXME helps these large companies discover and leverage a less obvious, but much simpler and more effective employee health plan strategy. The company accomplishes this through collaboration with their customers and the broader health care industry in unique ways and delivering a completely “portable” employee platform not possible until the enactment of the ACA.
Many employers engage in an expensive annual process of re-designing and re-structuring a health coverage solution, essentially creating their own health benefits company, and taking on the associated costs and risks of doing so, expending energy on matters outside their core competencies. They have been led to believe this customized approach is most effective, despite its cost and complexity.
Hixme looks at the subtleties of its clients’ business and determines how to migrate the company to a plan that creates more value for employees through direct employee ownership, leveraging the massive retail market of choices and stability. As the employer’s benefit consultant, Hixme starts this transition process, fully appreciating the client’s current position and approach and then helps the client through a “path of migration” best suited to each individual employer’s natural pacing and complexity. Once this strategy is in place, each employee can access a new and portable system of health and related insurance and the employer is able to get out of the messy and costly roles of designer / provider and into the much more important roles of facilitator / contributor.
