HighRoads Launching Web App for Communicating Health Plan Info

November 9, 2010 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – HighRoads is launching an online application by which employees can access changes in their benefits plans, receive customized summaries of their health and welfare coverage, and search for plan features.

The new HighRoads intelligent Web application will also provide employers with a vehicle to electronically disseminate the additional communication documents required by the health reform law to employees as soon as they are available.   

According to a press release, HighRoads has enhanced its existing Summary Plan Description (SPD) technology by creating an integrated Web app by which employees can access plan updates and check on coverage features in a process specifically customized for each individual. Through the HighRoads app, an intelligent search can be made on enrolled and eligible plan SPDs. For example, the announcement said, if a child suffers a broken arm on a school playing field, mom at work can immediately access her employer’s benefits management portal to determine what treatments, like x-rays and physical therapy are covered and the amount of her co-pays.   

The HighRoads solution ensures compliance with Department of Labor [DoL] and Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations.
