Customer Experience Enhanced with Quicker Wellness Benefit Claims Process—No More Invoices!

Illinois Mutual is continually looking for ways to improve our customers’ experience. This holds true with our recent update to the Wellness Benefit Claim Form for our Worksite product line.

Our Wellness Benefit process is now even more streamlined - no more copies of bills or invoices required before we pay the benefit! Just submit the revised Wellness Benefit Claim Form (BD169).

The revised Wellness Benefit Claim Form (BD169) makes things easier for you. Previously, Illinois Mutual required the Wellness Benefit Claim Form to be submitted along with copies of bills or invoices showing exactly what test was completed. Now with this exciting update, we no longer require bills or additional documentation - simply submit the new claim form.

The new Wellness Benefit Claims Process significantly increases our policyowners’ ability to receive Wellness Benefits promptly without the extra burden of copying bills or invoices!

Complimentary Combined Billing: Voluntary Benefits Made Easy!

Combined Billing limits your clients’ involvement in the time-consuming process of benefits administration at no cost to them or their employees, as the service fee is paid by the carrier!

Illinois Mutual wants to make doing business with us as easy as possible. When your clients partner with us to provide Voluntary Benefits at the Worksite to their employees, they can experience the convenience of complimentary Combined Billing.

Combined Billing Will Save Your Clients Time!

  • A Simple Solution for Accounts Payable or HR: Simple electronic transfer (ACH) of the premium deductions is made for the month to the third party administrator’s lock box.
  • Easy Reconciliation of Premium: The employer simply sends the deduction register to the secure FTP site of our third party administrator, Vision Financial, which then reconciles each company’s bill and pays the premium to the carriers.
  • Automatic Deduction Adjustment: When notified of changes by the carrier, Vision Financial automatically adjusts the deduction amount and sends the information securely to the employer’s payroll department. 

How Does Combined Billing Work?

Vision Financial, a licensed and bonded third party administrator, works behind the scenes to reconcile changes in the deductions and premium due for employees’ benefits selections and channels the premium payments to the proper carriers.

Steps for Setting up a Case with Vision Financial

  1. Complete a Vision Financial Case Information Form and submit it directly to Vision Financial at mktsupport@visfin.com. All carriers to be included in Combined Billing must have a contract with Vision Financial. Please contact Vision for a list of contracted carriers.
  2. Complete and submit the Workplace Case Data Report (8021) to Illinois Mutual. Make sure to indicate that the employer group will be billed by Vision Financial in Section 4 of the report.
  3. Advise your employer group that a Vision Financial representative will be in contact to confirm payroll deduction setup and data exchange.

Just one more way Illinois Mutual is making doing business with us Fast, Simple, Seamless®!
