Eligibility and Compliance

Save more and steer clear of risks

Our eligibility and compliance solution stops risk and spots hidden costs to your benefits plan.

We’re here to help

Health benefits plans are human. User error, forgotten forms. Our dependent eligibility and compliance solutions are easy to execute and integrate with your cloud-based benefits admin platform to stay on top of regulations you’re required to support — even as things change.

Here’s the Challenge

Benefits keep changing

Between regulations, life-changing events and a shifting workforce, it’s hard to keep costs down while reducing risk. You need to offer your people competitive benefits without costly slip ups getting in the way.

Here’s how we solve it

Stay ahead of twists and turns

Picture this: working with a partner who knows the common pitfalls of benefits administration, where to identify risks and how to proactively solve before they hit.

Spot the savings

The average dependent cost (over $4,000 a year) and healthcare costs are rising — fast. Our dependent audits find an average 5-7% of dependents ineligible in one-time audits, jumping to 10-14% in ongoing verification. The result? An average +1700% ROI on the cost of an audit.

We solve while you sleep

We’re on top of it around the clock with ongoing, and in many cases, automatic solutions, so you can carry on business as usual without risk and compliance qualms getting in the way of filing and auditing accurately. 

Spend your dollars where it counts

There’s a lot of avoidable expenses out there. Thousands to millions. Our dependent audits confirm eligibility, allowing you to reinvest healthcare dollars, in programs or premiums, that go back to your people.

One platform for the job

Say goodbye to the complicated vendor landscape. Our solution integrates on our cloud-based platform to secure data in one place, make audits seamless and allow employees to process any required forms online.
