Filtering Out Administrative Burden in Benefits

In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare landscape, employers have their work cut out for them when it comes to employee benefits management. Even the most heavily staffed benefits teams are finding it difficult to cover all the bases of a modern benefits program, which must account for rising costs, new regulatory issues and a host of other variables.

For the one-woman team of Machelle Bell at Flanders Corporation, there was simply not enough time in the day for her to manage the benefits program the way it needed to be managed. With a paper-based enrollment process, Bell’s work hours were consumed by completing basic administrative tasks manually. Meanwhile, Flanders’ employees were acting on a very limited understanding of their benefits, and strategic planning for the ACA was not getting near the attention it deserved.

With so many elements clouding the air, Bell needed a way to filter out the things that were preventing her from focusing on the bigger picture.
