Q. What is the process for Renewal and Implementation?
A. Request for Proposal: 90 days prior to client renewal, a request is sent to carriers for rates and alternative plan designs.
All rates and alternative plan designs are collected and a side-by-side comparison is prepared for evaluation.
The comparison is presented to the client and recommendations are discussed.
A timeframe is developed with the client for implementation of the selected benefits. Applicable group contracts are executed and submitted for approval.
Meetings are scheduled and held. Detailed enrollment materials are distributed, benefit levels and application submission procedures are reviewed. A minimum of 10 days is recommended in order for employees to review, complete and submit all applicable paperwork.
All applications are collected by our staff on a predetermined date and are reviewed by GNB staff and processed for enrollment.
Upon approval from the carrier, the client is given confirmation of the benefit effective date and arrangements are made for delivery and distribution of administrative and employee coverage documents.
