Carrier Connections: Easy, Compliant Benefits Administration

Carrier Connections: Easy, Compliant Benefits Administration

Moving benefits administration to the cloud brings secure, seamless integration between your organization’s core HR system and benefits providers. Using APS Payroll’s Carrier Connections, you can make your benefits administration easier and more automated, compliant, and error-free.

The Carrier Connections feature in the APS core HR system is a cloud-based service that automates benefit enrollment data management through pre-built, fully managed integrations with benefit insurance carriers and providers. This eliminates the need for duplicate data entry into carriers’ web portals – reducing the risk of errors – and it also means HR staff does not need to prepare and update enrollment reports for benefits carriers.

Here’s how it works: Carrier Connections automatically extracts your benefits data and transmits it to your benefits carriers on the schedule determined by each carrier. Benefit administrators can also run ad hoc updates as needed. Setting up the schedule is simple, and once set, updates run automatically. Now, you don’t have to worry about overlooking employees who should be enrolled in coverage or terminated employees who should no longer receive coverage. All employee benefit changes are sent to your insurance providers automatically.

Carrier Connections

APS’s Carrier Connections automatically sends enrollment data to plan providers.

Benefits data transmitted to providers is always secure, from extraction to delivery. There is no manual intervention in the process that could compromise security. Sensitive benefits data is protected with SFTP & SSL Internet security protocols and authentication certificates. As for compliance, Carrier Connections supports all applicable standards and protocols, including the HIPPAA 834 standard and its variations, as well as proprietary carrier formats.

The support for onboarding is excellent and their customer service is top notch. APS worked to get all of our needs met, and they continue to be problem solvers for us. Initially, I needed help navigating the system and they worked with me until I was comfortable and confident using the system.
