Free Yourself from Manual Carrier Communications

Free Yourself from Manual Carrier Communications

Communicating benefits enrollment data and life change events to carriers manually is disruptive, and time-consuming. This process requires timeliness and accuracy, which can be challenging, particularly for larger organizations.

Fortunately, Ahola partners with EverythingBenefits to make this process as seamless as possible for clients and their HR teams. EverythingBenefits’ Carrier Connectivity solution reduces the manual process of communicating highly sensitive benefits data and connects you to an extensive network of over 600 carriers.

The Benefits of Automating Carrier Communications

  • The manual process is time-consuming and error-prone, which can put organizations at risk for costly errors and increased liability.
  • Working with third-party providers can create another set of issues, such as not having a monitoring or feedback system in place, not knowing if and when the benefits data was communicated and whether it was completed accurately.
  • Most benefits providers only allow groups with 100 or more employees to enroll using automated EDI technology. This prevents groups with low enrollment in specific plans from using this technology.

What does EverythingBenefits’ automated Carrier Connectivity solution offer?

EverythingBenefits’ Carrier Connectivity solution completely eliminates the manual method of communicating sensitive benefits data and supports supports groups of any size.

  • Quick Setup: Automatic connections in as few as 8-14 weeks. With digital enrollment forms, this can be cut down further to just 2-4 weeks.
