Are you covering dependents
you shouldn’t?

A well-designed dependent verification process can do more than just save your organization money. It can improve compliance, reduce stop-loss exposure, minimize litigation risks and, most importantly, free up your team’s time and budget to focus on crafting impactful benefits programs for your employees.

Make sure you’re only paying for dependents you need to.

We start with a full, one-time audit of your entire population, weeding out dependents who are no longer eligible for benefits. Once we’ve done that, we set up ongoing processes that continuously verify new dependents added through hiring and other life events.

This ongoing verification is integrated with our enrollment system, making it simple for employees to upload documents like proof of eligibility through their benefits portal, as well as get help from the same support team they use for other benefitexpress services.

Automated verification.

Dependent eligibility checks are fully integrated with our My Benefit Express™ system, automatically prompting employees to answer any questions and upload any documents they need whenever they add a dependent.


Easy uploads.

Employees can save verification documents to the system from a computer or take a picture and upload it from their mobile device. Documents can also be emailed to our team.


Ongoing validation.

We double check all documents, making sure names and birth dates align with our data, and we make it simple for employees to finish enrollment while our verification is pending so they don’t have to waste time re-entering data later


Automated communication.

Reminders and notices about status changes are automatically generated and sent by our system, making sure employees are up-to-date on their dependents’ eligibility.
