Employer Tip: Plan Participation and Late Applicants
Allan Friesen CEBS CHRP, here again with another tip about getting the best value out of your Employee Benefit program.
Most employee benefit plans have a high level of participation, but what happens if an employer has a late applicant who would like to subsequently receive coverage? Typically, this applicant must provide proof that they are in good health to ensure that they are not joining the plan because of a new, potentially costly, medical issue. But what if they are a late applicant, simply because of an error or omission or because they did not hand in the paperwork on time. Allan Friesen addresses these points and explains how employers can avoid any issues related to enrolling late applicants in the corresponding video.
