Proactive Services

We believe in a service model that's proactive — not reactive. That's why we regularly and proactively communicate on the topics most relevant to your administration, providing resources like blogs, articles, videos and webinars to help you learn about important plan features or best practices throughout your plan year. Our proactive communications will keep you up to speed on regulatory changes, new features and other important topics throughout your support lifecycle, saving you time to focus on other areas of your role.

Easy Renewal

Our PlanAhead™ Renewal process lets you automatically renew your benefits plans from one year to the next with no changes on your part. Or, if you do have changes, this process provides pre-populated, step-by-step design guides so you only have to communicate what's changing from one year to the next — not what's staying the same. We also simplify renewal by sending reminders of milestones to keep timelines on track, offering an easy upload capability for electronic submission of COBRA rate change information and a case management system that routes questions to experts for fast resolution.
