BENEFITS MANAGERS

Streamlined COBRA Rate Renewal process A new online interface will allow clients to quickly update health plan information and rate details during COBRA open enrollment. This new feature will streamline administrative effort for clients and reduce processing time for open enrollment materials. It also ensures COBRA participants have the latest plan information and rate change notifications as early as possible.

Single point to login Benefits managers will be able to administer all their benefit accounts through one login, one set of credentials, and one location. Regardless of whether they’re using HealthEquity or WageWorks products, they will have one experience.

Faster online contributions with immediate invoice creation and results Contribution system enhancements will allow our small employers who manually enter their HSA contributions online to no longer need to wait for their results in an email. Instead, the system will immediately generate an invoice and clients will see the processing results in the confirmation screen.

BETA: Benefits Manager Help Center The Benefits Manager Help Center will provide tools specifically designed to help benefits managers administer healthcare accounts with greater ease and in-line education.

Single place to upload and manage all program files Whether a client uses HealthEquity or WageWorks products, file uploading will be done from the same online screen—thus further streamlining the process for administering various benefit accounts.

Additional Luum and HealthEquity connectivity Single-sign-on will be available between Luum and HealthEquity websites and mobile apps. The integration will deliver a seamless experience for benefits managers as they administer Luum’s commuter program in addition to other benefit accounts such as Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), or Wellness.

PARTNERS

Streamlined COBRA Rate Renewal process To help reduce processing time and simplify open enrollment for COBRA, we will be introducing a new online interface that allows clients to quickly provide updated health plan information.

We expect to expand administration for state continuation coverage to all states with an insurance continuation requirement. System enhancements will allow us to quickly configure and administer state continuation programs, while customizing it to the different requirements for each state. The offering can be paired seamlessly with our COBRA product to ensure compliance with all state and federal continuing coverage laws.

Reduction to processing time for reimbursement account funding

A number of improvements have been delivered to dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes for calendar year FSA, RA, and DCFSA funding deposits to process and we now expect Jan 1, 2022 to take under an hour.

Activity such as enrollment, balance displays, card updates, etc will all benefit from the decreased processing time. The biggest gains will be seen on our busiest days for enrollment, such as July 1 and October 1 with January 1 receiving the largest benefit... but we hope you will take New Year's Day off while our team is quickly processing your funding transactions.
