Adding an employee to your company's health insurance benefits is quick and easy when you use your SimplyInsured dashboard! Just follow these steps:
1) Log into your employer dashboard:
2) Click on "Add an Employee"
3) Fill in the required fields and click "Next" to complete the process of offering benefits to your employee
4) You will have then have two options:
A. You can send an online application to the employee using their work or personal email. Your employee will then receive an enrollment link to review the benefits offered by your company- including the monthly cost- and they can then choose to enroll in or decline the benefits. You do not need to do anything else as the employer after this!
B. You can complete the application on your computer with the employee (or for the employee).
NOTE: Our system will automatically calculate what an employee's effective date should be based on their hire date and your company's probationary period. You can change that default start date by clicking on "Change" next to the first day of coverage.
Health insurance companies typically generate bills a month before the bill is due, so it can take 1-2 billing cycles for employee changes to be reflected on your invoice. After adding your employee to the SimplyInsured dashboard, they will have insurance coverage from their confirmed effective date although they may not be on the invoice for that month. You will typically see this employee on your invoice the month after their effective date and they will be billed for two months worth of premiums.
