More Than Ever, Dependent Audits Make Good Business Cents!

Original Webcast Date: Thursday, June 22, 2010

Employers are facing numerous changes with the recently passed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). As we know today, some of the first PPACA provisions will need to be implemented with plans renewing on or after September 23, 2010. These provisions will eventually affect every employer's eligibility and plan participation.

A dependent audit and ongoing verification process will help preserve the integrity of your benefit plans by identifying incorrectly enrolled dependents. Sometimes these enrollments are simple oversights by the employee or the plan administrator. But other times they're an intentional attempt to gain benefits for someone not entitled to coverage. Either way, these enrollments cost your plan and plan participants significant dollars. A dependent eligibility audit remains one of the most compelling means to obtain immediate savings and protect your health plans from unnecessary and fraudulent claim expenditures.

During our recent Web event, "More Than Ever, Dependent Audits Make Good Business Cents!", Hewitt's dependent eligibility experts spoke about:

  • How to preserve the integrity of your company's benefit plans
  • How Health Care Reform has affected dependent audits and what kind of results can you now expect from an audit
  • How to move ahead with an audit and what are current industry best practices
