Did you know?
Dependents make up 70%+ of employer benefit costs, but on average 4-8% of claimed dependents are ineligible.
What are Dependent Audits?
Dependent Audits are a systematic method of verifying the eligibility of dependent participants in a benefits pool to identify ineligible dependents and remove them from the benefits plan.
The average dependent with benefits costs U.S. employers over $3,000 each, and spousal dependents regularly average $5,000 or more. Because of the high cost of offering benefits to dependents, businesses across America have embraced dependent eligibility audits to ensure they only incur costs for legitimate, eligible dependents.
Why do companies verify Dependent Eligibility?
Companies often attempt to Eliminate health care spending on ineligible dependents through a Dependent Audit.
Companies must stay in compliance with a variety of regulations including ERISA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
What is the best way to remove ineligible dependents?
We recommend that you work with an experienced vendor who gets proven results while preserving company culture. After all, savings shouldn’t sacrifice employee morale.
