Companies choose a vendor due to their experience and knowledge and insurance is no different. SERVICE is paramount to the clients who work with Elite-VB under Pamela’s leadership. Businesses have never chosen our agency due to the CARRIER. It is always due to the expertise of the leader. Elite-VB knows that the voluntary benefit broker you choose should be able to execute a flawless enrollment strategy, and then move immediately into “new hire” and “service strategy” as we are committed to handling claims in our Midtown office, making sure new hires are cared for and billing errors a “thing of the past”. Service…it’s what separates Elite-VB from other carriers in the Alaska market (especially those who just represent ONE carrier).
NEW HIRE STRATEGY:
Often new employees are given “guarantee issue” options only available during their eligibility period. Voluntary benefits are a vital tool in attracting employees and our benefit counselors will make sure that they are offered the programs and if they elect coverage, send deduction information and if no, capture the “decline”. This is critical and obviously if we’re enrolling all of your benefits, we will ensure they are also enrolled in their benefits on a timely basis.

COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 125:
New hire strategy is critical for ensuring that your organization complies with Section 125 as all “pre-tax” benefits should be offered to all employees equally and fairly.

MID-YEAR SERVICE VISIT:

Benefits enrollment certainly isn’t a one-and-done thing. After all, our lives are constantly evolving. Many life and career changes – expected and unexpected – can affect employees’ eligibility for certain benefits.
For instance, employees or their covered dependents may age out of certain benefits; and marriages, divorces, births, deaths or adoptions may add or annul benefits for employees and family members. New employees will need to prove eligibility for various offered benefits. And terminations necessitate timely adjustments to individual employee benefit agreements.
Elite-VB offers clients and our broker partners consistent monitoring and maintenance of eligibility issues for all client employers and their full workforces.
DEVELOP A FIVE
It’s encouraged to not only look to the initial enrollment needs and options, but to look forward to the next few years such that the needs and concerns for our employers/brokers are going to achieve the goals desired. A sample Five-Year Enrollment Strategy can include the following.
