employee benefits

With the year right around the corner, it’s time to make sure you’re helping your clients make the most out of their benefits. This means bringing them the right offerings, employing new strategies and staying up to date with the latest trends. Keep reading to learn how you can help your clients make the most out of their benefits in 2022.

Utilize technology to help make benefits easier

There are some excellent tools and software that make benefits selection and administration easier for your clients and their employees. For example, Clarity BenefitConnect automates the claim substantiation process so employees can focus on their health, instead of submitting claims, receipts, and Explanation of Benefits. Another example is Clarity’s online portal and mobile app. With this, employees can view their balance and transaction history, submit a claim, see important messages, and even sign up for BenefitConnect to minimize the need to send in receipts.

Steer your clients in the direction of technology that can make their benefits experience simpler and more innovative.

Offer solutions that simplify the benefits process

Offering the right solutions can help make the benefits process much easier for clients and their employees. For example, Clarity Flexible Spending Account (FSA) makes health care more affordable by allowing employees to use pre-tax dollars to cover expenses not reimbursed by insurance. Our solution makes this process even easier because we connect to your client’s payroll provider and benefits administration platform to automatically update all enrollments, terminations, and deposits. Our platform also connects to consumers’ insurance carriers, automatically substantiating card swipes and eliminating the need for receipts or EOB statements.

Another example is a Clarity Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA). An HRA gives your clients’ employees and their families a way to save, manage and spend employer-provided healthcare funds. The Clarity HRA is built to be flexible - the dollar amount and payment schedule are customized to your clients’ employees’ plan, unlike contributions to an HSA plan. And your clients’ employees are better able to manage health care expenses and save money by paying for different types of out-of-pocket expenses. Depending on the options your clients choose for their HRA plan, we make it convenient for their employees to use and access their HRA with features like: 

  • Clarity Benefit Card: Your clients’ employees pay providers for qualifying healthcare expenses with a simple swipe of a card. If their card is for prescriptions only, they can use it at the pharmacy. 
  • Clarity BenefitConnect: Clients’ employees enroll to track deductible spending, substantiate card transactions, or automatically reimburse eligible expenses.
  • Clarity Benefit Solutions Portal: Your clients’ employees can submit claims, view their account balance and transactions, see alerts and messages, and enroll in direct deposit through our online portal or the Clarity mobile app.
