Enrollment Process Improvement

Business Issue:

This payor had substantial opportunities to improve its level of customer service. Of 19 competitors, this payor was ranked last in the amount of time it took to complete a new group enrollment. Prior to revamping the group membership system, this organization needed assistance to review the existing business processes, identify the changes required to achieve dramatic improvements in customer service, and substantially reduce the cost of the new group enrollment process.
