Compliance and Regulatory Support
HR Service is a web-based tool that provides information and guidance to assist you in maintaining regulatory compliance. Federal laws, updated forms, and notices, are aggregated into one, easy-to-navigate website that pushes out email alerts when a compliance task is due.
Compliance Dashboard solves the four most common compliance issues:
Where to find the needed compliance information
What do to do with the information
How to ensure compliance efforts are tracked
How to document compliance efforts
A well-developed communication effort will ensure that employees understand the value of the benefits offered and receive consistent messages, making them aware of what benefits are available and how they work. Lacroix Benefits will assist in implementing a customized employee communication campaign utilizing a variety of print and electronic mediums.
Employee Advocacy Services
Advocacy is an increasingly important component of health management. Lacroix Benefits advocacy services focus on assisting employees with navigating the health care system and removing barriers for access to care. Common types of issues include access to care hampered by plan administrative difficulties, provider noncompliance with plan requirements, claim issues with incorrect denials, incorrect payments, balance billing, annual enrollment issues, late report qualified status changes, and dependent eligibility. Advocacy services can significantly reduce the use of your internal HR resources invested in resolving these issues while fostering self-service and providing high-touch assistance to your employees.
