ALEX Medicare Named a 2023 Chicago Innovation Award Winner

Chicago, IL —  ALEX Medicare, Jellyvision’s newest offering, has been named a winner of the 22nd annual Chicago Innovation Awards.

Recognized in the “Innovations for Older Adults” category, which celebrates products and services that solve challenges experienced by aging populations, ALEX Medicare is a cloud-based web application that provides employees with the Medicare education they desperately need, eliminating confusion and misinformation. 

“We’re thrilled that ALEX Medicare has been acknowledged as one of this year’s top innovations in Chicago,” said Alex Mohr, VP of Operations for Medicare at Jellyvision. “Employees are living and working longer, and a growing population uses Medicare for years before they retire. But with dozens of plans to choose from and little to no guidance from their employers, navigating the vast sea of Medicare information is a struggle. We’re proud to be solving that problem for millions of employees, helping them make smarter healthcare decisions in an informative, unbiased, and delightful way.”

The winners were announced at this year’s event held on November 16, 2023 at the UIC Forum. The Chicago Innovation Awards is the Chicago region’s foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market each year.  

“The Chicago region continues to be a global leader in innovation,” said Tom Kuczmarski, co-founder of the Chicago Innovation Awards. “The 2023 winners are solving unmet needs and making a difference in healthcare, science, logistics, art, food & beverage, consumer products, environment, industrial, energy, education, finance, manufacturing, social services, legal, HR and workforce development.”  

The winning organizations receive a variety of honors, including the opportunity to ring the Nasdaq Bell in New York City.

“Nearly 350 organizations nominated for this year’s awards,” said Luke Tanen, President and CEO of Chicago Innovation.  “As a group, these nominees are responsible for generating over $3.8 billion in new revenues and creating over 10,000 jobs. The winners represent the best from this very impressive group.”
