Managing Benefits Enrollment Made Easy and Affordable with EaseCentral

I have some exciting news for you. EaseCentral, a company that creates an awesome technology platform for HR and employee benefits, has just launched a fantastic new feature. This feature is perfect for small businesses with 100 employees or less. It will save you a ton of time when it comes to getting your new hires signed up for insurance benefits.

Now, you might be wondering how this all works. Well, EaseCentral has come up with something called an Electronic Data Interchange, or EDI, platform. This platform allows for the instant transfer of information using a standardized electronic format. And get this – EDI has been around since the 1970s! So it’s definitely a tried and true method.

What is the EDI Platform?

Let me Break It Down for You

I spoke to the CEO of EaseCentral, David Reid, to get the lowdown on how this EDI platform works and why it’s so great for small businesses like yours.

Small businesses and insurance brokers are facing a tough challenge right now, I said. They have to manually gather data and put it into spreadsheets, and then present it in a way that people can understand.

But here’s the good news: EaseCentral has a solution. Our cloud-based software platform makes employee benefits simple and easy to manage. With our automated paperless enrollment process, you can say goodbye to the days of filling out forms on paper. And our onboarding and offboarding solution makes it a breeze to bring new employees onboard or let them go.

Here’s the best part: what used to take weeks can now be done in minutes. No more waiting around for paperwork to be processed. With EaseCentral, everything happens online and quickly. Employees can even get their ID number right away, so they can start using their benefits without any delay.

Until now, only big businesses used EDI connections to transmit their data. These are the companies with a ton of information to send all the time.

Large companies use EDI to save time because no one wants to type in info for thousands of employees, Reid said. But that’s not efficient for a small business with only 12 employees. The insurance companies don’t want to go through the hassle of setting up an EDI connection if it takes longer than doing paperwork. Especially when that small business might not even have a single enrollment in a whole year. It’s just easier to stick with paperwork.

Reid also mentioned that if you could gather the data from thousands of small businesses into a single file, you’d have the same benefits that big companies have enjoyed for years. That’s exactly what his company did.

That’s where EaseCentral broke the ice, I said. We’re now up and running with a limited group of providers, but we’ll be adding more in the coming months.

I believe this new technology is going to completely transform how we purchase and manage benefits in the next few years. In fact, I think within the next 36 months, we will see a major shift towards using EDI as the standard for small businesses to handle employee benefits enrollment.

Those who have already embraced this technology have reported overwhelmingly positive results in terms of efficiency, cost savings, and customer satisfaction, I continued.

EDI is the future for small companies in this industry, I stated confidently. Large corporations have been using it for ages, and now it’s finally accessible to small businesses as well. We’re starting in California and expanding to other states soon.

It sounds like Reid is right when he says that EaseCentral’s software platform and new EDI abilities make managing employee benefits easier.

Health insurance and benefits experts can quickly retrieve quotes and compare information from multiple carriers using any computer or mobile device. Then, employees can take control of the decision-making process, by clicking the Start Enrollment button and setting up their group in the enrollment system.

The platform checks enrollment applications for errors or incorrect information, which can cause delays. This ensures faster access to healthcare benefits and providers. It also helps brokers, employers, and employees deal with any issues after the sale.

EaseCentral’s EDI Platform for Brokers

When it comes to pricing, our company keeps the needs of small businesses in mind. We offer a flexible pricing model that allows you to choose the subscription that’s right for you. Starting at just $249 per month, you can use our platform with up to 1,000 employees. If you have a larger team, our $499 per month subscription allows up to 5,000 employees to use the platform. And for just $999 per month, brokers have the freedom to enroll as many employees as they need, with no limit.

As a broker, you have the option to let your clients – HR professionals and benefits administrators – use the platform at little to no cost. We see this as an added incentive for brokers to keep their clients on board and help them succeed.

I wanted to share some exciting news about EaseCentral. Right now, we have over 22,000 companies and more than 400,000 employees using our platform. It’s amazing to see so many businesses benefiting from what we offer.

What’s even more impressive is that most of these companies are small businesses, with an average of under 20 employees. This means that our platform is perfectly suited to meet the needs of the small business world.

While we currently operate in 21 states, our EDI system is currently only being used by Anthem Blue Cross in California. But that’s about to change! Starting in July, we’ll be partnering with Limelight Health and HealthPartners. This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand our reach and help even more people.

Our plans for the future are big. We want to bring our services to more carriers and states over the next few months. This means that even more companies and employees will be able to take advantage of what EaseCentral has to offer.
