Carrier Connections

On September 24th we rolled out a brand new product feature, carrier connections. If your company utilizes benefits administration then you’re probably aware of the time it takes to complete a manual entry of employee selections. Carrier connections allows for the electronic transmission of all employee health benefit selections, eliminating the need for manual updates and reducing room for error. 

Utilizing carrier connections doesn’t require any work on your part. Updates are sent to your insurance provider automatically once a week in a single file. Feel secure in knowing your data is safely stored and transferred with HIPAA-compliant processing for your sensitive information. 

If you’re interested in utilizing this new feature please contact Claire Manz at (616) 243-8145.

Year End Help

As year end approaches please remember to call our client solutions team with any questions. Similar to last year, if you need additional assistance you can reserve time slots for year end questions and assistance. While we do not have specific dates at this time, we wanted to make you aware of the resources available. 

Also, we have a year end checklist available to all clients. We’ve recently updated our year end checklist to include ACA information. If your business will be liable for ACA reporting please make sure to reference our checklist for assistance. 

If you’re interested in receiving this checklist, please reach out to our client solutions team.
