What-If Pricing

Click on the See how a qualified life event may affect benefit pricing link from the Insurance Benefits Summary window to display the what-if pricing. This scenario pricing is where the employee has access to see the different pricing levels for benefit information even when they are not in an open enrollment period. This is useful when an employee has a qualified life event and they want to know how much their benefit cost options would be if they made changes to them. While the employee is using the what-if pricing, benefit choices do not save.

When using this what-if pricing, a message box displays in the top left of the window.

Simultaneous Package Enrollment

An employee hired at the end of the benefit year may need to enroll in both a new hire package and open enrollment package at the same time. Online enrollment can handle enrolling the employee in both packages. When the employee signs into eHub they are prompted to enroll in their new hire package first. Once they have confirmed their benefit selections for this package the summary view displays giving the employee the opportunity to enroll in their open enrollment package. Use this link for set up information on this feature.

Message Boxes

Health Savings Account

If an employee receives a Benefits Setup Error message box related to the Health Savings Account (HSA), the benefits administrator needs to edit the setup in WinTeam. This message displays if there are no HSA Maximums set up or if the only Effective Date is set with a future date on the Plan Options tab of the INS: Benefit Setup window.

Security

Permission for you to provide Online Enrollment Employee Assistance is added via SYS: Security Groups on the eHub tab. There you would select the INS Insurance Benefits screen, and the Online Enrollment: Employee Assistance feature.
