Administering Your Health Plan

Most administrative functions are handled by the insurance company through which you have coverage. You are still responsible, however, for a fair amount of work.

The primary tasks include the following:

  • Enrolling new employees and making status changes as needed
  • Deducting premiums from employee wages and remitting them to the insurance company within the grace period allowed under the policy
  • Acting as liaison between employees and the insurer
  • Terminating benefits and extending COBRA coverage
  • Complying with reporting and disclosure requirements
