HR professionals deal with piles of paperwork and spreadsheets during open enrollment. These manual enrollment methods are subject to data entry, handwriting, and transcription errors, and these errors translate to bad data being sent to insurance carriers.
With section 2712 of the Affordable Care Act prohibiting group and individual health plans and insurers from rescinding coverage retroactively (except under certain very specific conditions) it’s more important than ever to make sure that the data you send your carriers is completely accurate.
There’s a faster, easier, more accurate way!
If you’re thinking about automating enrollment, here is the third secret to making this process a success.
