Welcome to the Halley Release

Named for the famous comet, Halley contains a wealth of enhancements which we hope
will illuminate your benefits programs.

Advanced Payroll Deductions

What It Does

Advanced Payroll Deductions uses sophisticated logic to calculate and track payroll deductions over time, automating a process that is often manual, time-consuming and error-prone. The system calculates payroll deductions based on coverage effective dates and enrollment dates. The system can also import actual payroll deductions, making adjustments and generating refunds when required.

Broker-Level
Export History

We’ve updated the Broker view on the export history page to allow better visibility across all clients and all export types. This puts all export jobs for all of a broker’s clients in one place to ensure files are sent when expected during open enrollment and throughout the year.

Implementation Wizard Plan Recommendations 

The Wizard is casting new spells! Now new employer groups can add plan details and download a plan worksheet right from the implementation wizard. 
This improves efficiency by allowing benefits teams to provide this detailed information up front and gives them more control over what information is presented to their employees.

Integrations and APIs

Employee and Dependent Coverage API
This API allows for the quick addition of coverage information for subscribers and dependents replacing the need for traditional batch file solutions sent to carriers.

Beneficiaries API
A natural extension of the PlanSource Standard API, beneficiary information can now be easily added and updated in the system through an API.
