EaseCentral partners with Apprize Technology, a Benefit Administration Systems provider, who configures and manages Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) integrations with insurance carriers in the Health & Welfare industry. Apprize Technology receives demographic and enrollment data for employees and dependents through EaseCentral's automated, custom files. As enrollments are added and changed in EaseCentral by administrators and employees, EaseCentral ensures all changes are then sent securely to Apprize. Apprize Technology then automates the data into the carriers' required file specifications for ongoing automatic communication of new enrollments, terminations, enrollment changes, and demographic changes directly to the carrier.
- The setup fees are $750 per EDI file to Medical, Dental, Vision or FSA carriers.
- The setup fees are $1500 per EDI file to ancillary carriers.
- Ongoing fees are $75 per month per file.
- Apprize Technology can bill either the agency or the employer directly for the integration fees.
Note: 3rd -party EDI integrations are only available to EaseCentral customers with Agency or Enterprise subscriptions. Customers with Pro subscriptions are not eligible for integrations with Apprize Technology.
Please contact Cori Holt at firstname.lastname@example.org if an employer is interested in using EDI with EaseCentral and Apprize Technologies. Please also verify with your carrier contacts whether EDI is an option for your interested employers. While Apprize Technology does not have a client size requirement, carriers may have minimum number of employees or enrollments they will accept on EDI carrier connections.
The Apprize Technology EDI/Enrollment Services team will start the integration process with EaseCentral, the employer and carriers. Typically integrations for Medical, Dental, Vision, and FSA enrollments take about 60 days to complete and 60 – 90 days to complete for ancillary lines of coverage. The broker and employer contact will be involved in the data validation and reconciliation steps in the EDI connection process.
*COBRA Administrator integrations are not supported at this time.
