Since SBCs can be requested at any point during the year beyond the open enrollment period, regular changes to regulations add an extra challenge to the already complex task of developing and maintaining compliant benefits documents and materials.
SBCs not in compliance put employers at risk of costly penalties. It is required that SBCs must be distributed at initial enrollment, by the first date an individual can enroll in coverage, AND at open enrollment (no later than 30 days before the beginning of the next plan year), during HIPAA special enrollment (no later than 90 days after enrollment) and on request (no more than seven business days after a request).

We apply high-tech solutions to manage benefits data and avoid errors that cost time and money. Our solutions streamline the process of updating materials developed using multiple data streams and plan design changes are instantly reflected in the SBCs.
