After Carrier plans and pricing are obtained by sending a medically underwritten quote or through the FormFire Quote Portal, the Assign Plans process can begin. Watch the video below to see how you can add plans to your Clients in FormFire.
Select any of the links below to view each step in the Assign Plans process:
- Select a Plan
- Customize Plan
- Pricing Structure
- Load Rates
- Turn on Plan Selection process for Employees
Select a Plan
On the Client Dashboard, open the orange context menu and select Manage Plans.
To add a new plan, select Assign Plan under the Back button. Any plans already loaded will show in this space.
Use any of the filters to find the desired plan. Check the drop-down menu in case there are multiple prescription options to choose from. When you find the plan that you are looking for, select the plan and then select Next.
Here on the Customize Plan page, you can create a custom name (like 'Base Plan' or 'Buy Up Plan') and description for the plan that the Employees will see when they complete the Employee Interview. The customized name and description only appear on the Employee's account, not on the actual form that's sent to the Carrier.
Select Next to move to the Pricing Structure page, where you'll choose either Age Banded or Composite for the plan's rating.
Then, select the Employer Contribution towards the cost of the plan from the following 4 options:
- Dollar Advanced
- Percentage Advanced
Enter in the value for the Employer Contribution, the symbol is already included for you on the left hand side of the screen.
Finally, on the Load Rates page, add in your quote rates (premiums) without any deductions and select Save to complete.
Turning on Plan Selection process for Employees
Make sure that you go back to your Client Dashboard, open the orange context menu for your Client, and select Client Details.
Under Client Details, make sure to select the correct Pay Period under Employer Info.
Then, scroll down to Plan Selection. Fill in the Plan Selection Open Date and Close Date fields. Remember to Save your changes. The plan(s) will automatically appear in the Employees' accounts on the Plan Selection Open Date.
If the Plan Selection dates are empty, Employees will not see the Benefits tab during the Employee Interview.
