For Employers & Carriers

A Consumer-centric Approach to Health Savings Accounts

The continued growth of high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) has made health savings accounts (HSAs) a vital part of protecting employee health and financial well-being. But these accounts also have added greater complexity to benefit programs, in both employer administration and employee education.

Benefitfocus’ all-new Health Savings Account (HSA) experience provides increased flexibility to support a complex web of business rules and payroll calendars. More importantly, the consumer-centric design provides new ways for employers to provide engaging decision support on these increasingly important accounts.

Request a demo today to learn how you can give employees the tools they need to better protect their health and financial well-being.

For Employers

Consolidated Billing & Payment

As employers add more variety to their benefit packages, monthly billing reconciliation and payment processes become more complex and time-consuming. BENEFITFOCUS® Consolidated Billing and Payment simplifies the monthly billing process by creating a single invoice that shows you a total amount for the benefits you manage through Benefitfocus Marketplace. Once you approve your final invoice, Benefitfocus remits the payments on your behalf.

Request a demo today to learn how you can simplify the monthly billing and payment process into three easy steps.

For Employers & Carriers

Setting the Industry Standard

Voluntary benefits have become a core component of a well-designed, comprehensive benefits package for groups of all sizes. Third-party enrollment systems make it easier for employers to offer these benefits, but data exchange and file formatting becomes a challenge for carriers attempting to take in the data.

The BENEFITFOCUS® Certified Carrier Program eases the burden and opens an additional sales channel for life and ancillary carriers to build and implement their products for employers on the Benefitfocus Platform.

Through the adoption of the new ACORD Employee Benefits Standard, donated by Benefitfocus to ACORD, this industry-first standard protocol simplifies data exchange for more than 100 benefit types and a multitude of enrollment systems. Employers who elect to offer benefits from our portfolio of Certified Carrier Partners can achieve greater efficiency in implementations and renewals while also experiencing higher data quality when transmitting their enrollment data to their benefit partners.

For Carriers & Employers

Flexible Enrollment Solutions

During open enrollment, near renewals and during mergers or acquisitions, large volumes of transactions often occur across various systems. Benefitfocus eEnrollment™ and Benefitfocus Marketplace now include a file-based enrollment feature that enables carrier users, brokers and group administrators to upload enrollment and employee demographics information in seconds from these disparate systems, eliminating hours of time-consuming and error-prone manual data entry. This provides carriers, brokers, and group administrators with a single source for managing all their enrollment data.

Give your customers the flexibility they need to more efficiently manage the enrollment process. Contact sales@benefitfocus.com to request a demo today.

For Carriers

A Single Billing Platform for All Markets

Benefitfocus eBilling™ provides insurance carriers a single premium payment solution to support all lines of business across all market segments. With a brand-new, mobile-friendly design, eBilling simplifies the user experience based on the specific audience – whether it’s an invoice for a consumer, fully-insured group or self-insured employer that needs to see claims and ASO fees. And when eBilling is used alongside eEnrollment, group administrators enjoy a consistent user experience with a familiar look and feel that makes the enrollment and billing one, cohesive, intuitive experience.

Bring efficiency to your billing and payment process with eBilling. Contact sales@benefitfocus.com to request a demo today.

For Carriers

Data Exchange Transparency

Benefitfocus eExchange™ enables carriers to provide superior service and data quality to groups that use third-party enrollment platforms to transfer data to the carrier. The all-new eExchange dashboard enhances that service by giving you unprecedented visibility into the data exchange process, enabling you to monitor timelines and accuracy of the files you receive from:

  • Employer groups
  • Healthcare.gov and other government provided insurance channels
  • Broker enrollment systems
  • Third party private exchanges and enrollment platforms
  • Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs)

The eExchange dashboard is a part of the data dashboard that is available today to carriers through One Place 365.
