Benefits Connect

Status: Completed

Benefits Connect is an online benefits enrollment and administration system fully automated with EDI connectivity among employer groups, brokers, and Third Party Administrators (TPA’s).  The system simplifies the entire benefits administration process for the DBM - Employee Benefits Division.  Data is communicated automatically to insurance carriers receiving EDI feeds.  The system is also built to generate reports to the employer, broker and TPA.

This method of enrollment was implemented by the DBM - Employee Benefits Division during the open enrollment season of December 2009.  This method has simplified the overview of employee benefit packages.  The DBM - Employee Benefits Division staff is now able to enroll new employees, make benefit election changes and make qualifying event changes electronically.  Changes to the system are communicated automatically on a weekly basis to the County’s Group Insurance Carrier.

Major Project Activities:

  • Automation of the benefits enrollment and administration system among employer, brokers, and Third Party Administrators (TPA’s)
  • Provide training to DBM-Employee Benefits Division staff in order to properly utilize the Benefits Connect enrollment system
