Working Spouse Provisions

DSI eliminates wasteful spending by enforcing the benefit plan design as crafted by our clients with professionalism, customization, and sensitivity toward employees

Working Spouse Audits can save clients $5,000 or more per ineligible spousal dependent

With Working Spouse provisions, employers either:

Limit benefits availability to only those spouses who do not have equal or better benefits elsewhere (‘carveout’)
2. Apply a surcharge to the employee’s premium for spousal coverage

Working Spouse Provisions from DSI

Working Spouse rules generally create very little employee noise, but most organizations with one or both of these provisions have historically relied on ‘enforcement by the honor system’, as it can be difficult for a company to obtain benefits information from a spouse’s workplace.

With a Working Spouse Audit, DSI does all the work so HR isn’t negatively impacted.

"DSI was brought into our project midway through an attempt to do our own dependent audit in-house. They blew us away with their best practice advice and knowledge of predicting what would work for our employees. In less than a month they seamlessly took over, reached our associates, processed countless documents we were behind on, and managed to push participation over 95%!"


"DSI did an outstanding job. Because of our turnover we struggle with employee engagement, but the combination of letters, email, outbound calls, even the posters for the bathroom doors all made for a much higher level of participation than we expected."
