Active vs. Passive Open Enrollment: Did You Take the Right Path?

Benefits Partnership for Open Enrollment Success

Open enrollment success. The phrase can take many different meanings. But all benefits professionals can agree that, at a high level, it means you’ve achieved the goals set for your organization. Those goals could be anything from encouraging employees to contribute more to their health savings accounts, to reducing the number of calls you receive during OE, or simply, getting all employees to complete enrollment by a certain date.

Easier said than done, right?

Achieving those goals becomes more complicated when rolling out new initiatives or benefit plans. The team at ViaQuest, a company providing home health, hospice and behavioral health care, found itself facing such a complication. ViaQuest was implementing two major initiatives: 1) switching dental and vision vendors, and 2) pushing a new consumer-directed health plan option. At the same time, the team was spending several hours just answering employee questions, processing changes and correcting errors.
