Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Beginning January 1, 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will change the way the individual and small group markets calculate premium rates. Health insurance carriers will be able to use only three factors to vary premium rates: the geographic area, the number of people in a family covered and the age of family members. Obtaining the age and zip code for every enrolling family member, including spouse and children, will be required when quoting health insurance rates for small businesses.
In response to the changing requirements, Warner Pacific created a tool for easily collecting census data and generating quotes for small businesses (1-50). The EZEmployeeInfo tool is the new HIPAA-compliant solution for quoting under the ACA 2014 guidelines.
The process could not be simpler. The broker sends the employer a link for the EZEmployeeInfo dashboard, which the employer forwards to all employees. Employees are able to privately and securely submit the required information for themselves and all of their dependents. Employees will be able to enter the information using their work or home computer, their smart phone or even their tablet. The employer can monitor the progress through the EZEmployeeInfo tool without seeing the actual information to make sure everything is completed in a timely manner.
When completed, the employees’ information is automatically consolidated into one census report accessible only to the broker. The broker uses the census to instantly create a proposal containing quotes from multiple carriers.
The EZEmployeeInfo tool is available now to all registered brokers.
