Plan One Year in Advance
Posted on November 16th, 2017
This is the time of year that many groups are renewing their benefits plans. Just like so many other companies, our office gets to go through the same renewal process as well.
For the last couple of years, The Cason Group has been on the Beacon Benefits Solution platform. And just like many of your group members, I tend to wait until the very last possible minute to take care of my renewal choices. Last year, I literally logged into my account at 10 pm on the final day to renew (after getting daily emails from HR telling me that midnight was the deadline) to make my elections.
The process went like this: I logged in and my personal Beacon Benefits Solution homepage immediately showed me my options for Group Medical, Dental, Life, Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability, Vision, Accident, Critical Illness, Cancer and HSA. Nearly all of our benefits have dual options. Since I made good decisions the previous year, and Beacon saves my elections, I chose to keep all of my elections the same. Within two minutes I was done and my existing elections were submitted – two hours before the deadline. No staying up until midnight fumbling through benefit designs, signing and scanning documents!
By installing your groups on Beacon Benefits Solution now, you will be making renewals much faster and simpler for yourself, the employer, and the employee. With this system, renewal open enrollments keep me safe from HR and give me more time to spend with my family and prepare for the rest of the month.
On top of making renewals quick and painless, Beacon Benefits Solution also helps to simplify enrollment, eliminates 95 percent of the paperwork, enhances benefit communication, and increases employee participation.
So do yourself a favor and put your groups on Beacon Benefits Solution this year. You’ll thank us later!
