Using the Employer Website

  • The secure employer website makes business health plan administration quick and easy. You can search by member, see coverage start dates, handle enrollments and terminations, and access an array of employer resources all in one place. 

    User roles and permissions

    Different permission levels are granted for different user roles on the secure employer site. Group administrators are your account’s primary contact. They have access to all of the web tools and manage permissions for all account users. Please contact your group administrator if you need additional site access.
