WellTech+

Orchard Benefits is proud to collaborate with Medavie Blue Cross to launch WellTech+, an innovative, new product tailored to meet the evolving demands of tech startups.

Your company is personal – so is our approach to employee benefits.

It's frustrating to be stuck in a benefits plan that doesn't adapt to your business. Young companies need a solid ROI on every dollar spent, and not having the financial flexibility can derail a startup's trajectory.

Our mission is to ensure that you never overspend on employee benefits and that your competitive employee benefits package is scalable, customizable, and hyper-personalized to your team and yearly budget.

Growing your team alongside your business.

In partnership with Medavie Blue Cross, Orchard Benefits provides coverage that evolves and grows alongside your startup.
