Benefits professionals are sophisticated consumers of services
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2010
HRAdvance, the standard in eligibility solutions, today released the latest average results from their comprehensive dependent eligibility audits. These results show an average first year Return on Investment (ROI) of 1,436%. While many providers base their estimated ROI on the discovery of ineligible populations anywhere between 3 and 12 percent, few publish detailed comparative information.
"Benefits professionals are sophisticated consumers of services," said Craig Firestone, HRAdvance CEO. "They buy health plans based on outcomes, and they are continually working with providers to acquire services for their employees that deliver more. It's time that they are able to evaluate dependent eligibility audits in the same way, and that's only possible when eligibility audit providers are willing to release their results. As more employers adopt dependent verification as an internal control, it's time to fully inform the consumer."
Since its inception, HRAdvance has worked with more than 175 clients, and 141 of those have completed their initial comprehensive dependent eligibility audit. Clients have garnered over $215 million in comprehensive audit savings and more than $20 million from ongoing eligibility verification savings. HRAdvance clients find an average of 10.93 percent of dependents ineligible on their health plans. For a listing of audit outcomes by industry, including construction, energy, government, healthcare, manufacturing, publishing & printing, retail and technology and telecommunications go to the HRAdvance website.
