MetLife Announces Single Sign On Capabilities

MetLife, in an email to BAS' President Arthur Taylor, wrote:

"As you know, we have successfully enabled a single sign-on interface between Benefit Allocation Systems and MetLife. In particular, the value-added capabilities which allow life insurance enrollees streamlined access from their BAS enrollment site over to MetLife's Statement of Health (SOH) website, where they can complete and submit their information on-line.

I am happy to inform you that MetLife’s on-line SOH website is now available for both Life and Disability groups of 2,000 lives or more. The site supports all state specific requirements and medical questions. Other Statement of Health website enhancements include:

  • Single Form if Applying for Voluntary Life and Disability
  • Expanded Auto Adjudication Capabilities
  • Improved Usability"
BAS is pleased that MetLife has advanced its SSO capabilities and making it available to BAS. Art Taylor noted, "SSO will enhance our clients' experience within MyEnroll when their enrollment processes include a MetLife statement of health requirement." He also said "As we are all learning, open systems provide great opportunities between data trading partners like BAS and MetLife. Using technologies like SSO unequivocally help control administration costs; particularly for large volume transaction clients.
Single sign-on (SSO) is a property of access control of multiple related, but independent software systems. With this property a user logs in once and gains access to all systems without being prompted to log in again at each of them
Though BAS has not made a formal announcement, it is working with WebMD, on behalf of a mutual client with approximately 30,000 employees, to develop SSO connectivity between BAS' MyEnroll and WebMD's wellness care system. Just as in the case with MetLife, these 30,000 employees will be able to seamless move from their private, secure online accounts into WebMD's private, secure wellness system. BAS expects this initiative to be completed by the end of January '12.
