Benefitfocus eEnrollment is built with advanced technology to recognize each member’s specific scenario. Whether an employee is enrolling in benefits as a new hire, during an open enrollment period or making changes due to a life event, eEnrollment only presents the transactions that they need to complete.
- Initial Enrollment: During the sales process, eEnrollment automatically calculates group numbers, finalizes benefit elections and sends the data to the insurance carriers’ membership systems.
- New Hire Enrollment: New hires can enroll in benefits anytime during their initial enrollment period. eEnrollment calculates wait periods and effective dates automatically to ensure compliance with the group’s business rules.
- Open Enrollment: eEnrollment simplifies open enrollment by providing tools that help employees move from one task to another, such as workflows and to-do lists, email reminders and a wide range of reports.
- Life Events: Employees can make changes to their elections for specific reasons, such as a birth, marriage or military leave. eEnrollment calculates effective dates and helps employees understand what types of coverage changes are permitted with each type of life event.
