The Heartbleed Bug is a security risk that made headlines last week. It presents a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library that implicates encryption features. It is the encryption technology behind many websites that collect personal or financial information (typically indicated by a lock icon in the browser to tell the user the site is secure).
Next week, April 17, 2012, Arthur Taylor, President of Benefit Allocation Systems, Inc., will be speaking at the National Association of Church Personnel Administrators (NACPA) convocation in Tampa, Florida. Mr. Taylor will be presenting an overview of BAS' MyEnroll.com consolidated location billing, collection and accounts receivable management solution (Consolidated Billing). Charles Bradley, BAS' Senior Vice President for Sales & Implementation will co-present.
In support of its religious sector clients, several BAS sales and account management representatives will be attending the 2011 National Association of Church Personnel Administrators ("NACPA") "Waves of the Future Convocation" in Tampa, Florida April 15-17, 2012.
Benefit Allocation Systems, Inc. has expanded its Employee & Retiree Verification (“ERV”) service that helps employers prevent identity fraud in their group health plans.
BAS’ ERV service provides employers a vehicle for confirming that employees, retirees and dependents covered under the employer's group health plans are not identified by the government as deceased. One purpose of the service is to identify group health plan participants who are unlawfully using a Social Security number belonging to a deceased United States citizen. Another purpose is to identify retirees who have passed away but continue to have active records in the group health plan because no one notified the plan on behalf of the deceased.
As part of its ongoing effort to afford the highest level of privacy and security to information in MyEnroll.com, BAS provides an easy and secure method to transmit employee data files or any document that needs to be shared. MyEnroll users can upload information in the MyEnroll system to BAS Administrators, Employer Administrators, Insurance Brokers and other third parties who have access to MyEnroll.com's Secure File menu item.
MyEnroll.com provides a centralized location for an employer's Human Resources documents, forms and links while providing easy access for employees through the online Reference Library. An employer may customize the Reference Library to grant access to all employees, or to restrict access to specific Benefit Classes. This unique feature gives an employer the tools it needs to customize information provided to employees on a class-by-class basis.
Benefit Allocation Systems, Inc. will begin administering Health Reimbursement Accounts (“HRAs”) to compliment its online enrollment and Flexible Spending Account (“FSA”) administration services effective April 1, 2012.
This important offering will provide clients with three valuable service level options: (1) HRA Standalone administration, (2) FSA Standalone administration and (3) Combined HRA and FSA administration.
BAS has added four new employees to its team to start off the New Year. BAS's new hires will provide support in large account management, programming, call center and administration.
