Q: Why should I verify dependent eligibility?
A: While the reasons for ineligibility are not necessarily attempts to deceive, generally somewhere between 2% and 10% of plan participants are ineligible as outlined in the Summary Plan Description.

Q: Is it really a problem if someone isn’t eligible?
A: Using payroll contributions to fund health care claim costs of ineligible dependents is an ERISA violation. By conducting a dependent verification audit, you demonstrate fiduciary responsibility and reduce your non-compliance risk under ERISA, SOX, and DOL.

Q: But how much could I really save?
A: Assume that the average claims payout, per dependent, on an employer-sponsored group health plan is $4,700 and the plan has 100 dependents enrolled. If just 3 of them are found ineligible, the plan could save more than $14,000.

Q: That’s a lot of money! How do I get started?
