We are excited to release new features for both our HRIS and Benefits Administration modules. Additionally, we have made a few enhancements for our Broker partners in our Broker Portal module in our latest release. Please read on to find out more and as always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
The All-new Flock Mobile App
Flock’s mobile App is a perfect solution for HR administrators to help their employees from hire to retire. The mobile application comprises key features like digital onboarding, e-signatures, benefits enrollment, employee engagement, time-off tracking and more to improve the overall operational efficiency of your organization.
Setting up Flexible Report Schedules (Bi-Weekly/Monthly)
Prior to this release users could schedule weekly reports. We have added additional options to schedule reports based on a daily, semi-monthly, or monthly frequency. This can be configured using the calendar icon next to the respective report. Note that this is supported for both predefined reports and custom reports.
Support to make PCP required now available for open enrollment (UX improvements)
For carriers that require a Primary Care Physician (PCP) information before enrolling employees into an HMO, Flock now allows the broker to require this option within the plan build. Employees can also be required to provide the PCP name or both PCP name and ID as needed.
This can be configured in the Broker Portal under the Product section on the client’s home page. This setting is availble when you edit a plan under the Plan Design section.
Flexible New Hire Enrollment Logic
We have enhanced the new hire waiting period options to support many more complex rules. In addition, we now allow employers to provide the flexibility for employees to enroll 30 days after the new hires effective date. This can be configured in the broker portal under the company configuration page. If you do not have broker portal access, please contact your broker team or the Flock support team to make these changes.
Additional Group Plan Support: Other 1/Other 2/Other 3
For companies with multiple, similar group plans, we have added the ability to create a generic group plan. These generic plans give the broker the flexibility to create a plan type similar to the pre-existing, major group plan offerings (life/std/ltd). For example, a company offers an employer paid group STD plan, but would also like to add a mandated state disability also classified as STD. Now, both of these plans may now exist alongside one another in the Group Plan section.
This can be configured in the Broker Portal under the Product section on the client’s home page. This setting is available when you edit a plan under the Plan Design section.
Voluntary Plan Bundling (Vol Life + Vol AD & D)
Capped/Match Benefits Coverage
GI Amounts Enhancements
Brokers can create enrollment logic for life and AD&D plans where life enrollment is required to elect before enrolling in AD&D. Brokers can also create additional logic to tie the AD&D election to the life election (exact match) or to set the life election as a cap for AD&D enrollment amount.
This can be configured in the Broker Portal under the Product Bundles section on the client’s home page.
