Save time and streamline SBC maintenance with a flexible, automated SBC creation
Why is the VUE Benefit Summary Tool better than a manual approach?
Simply: its design. Each plan, along with its benefits, is stored in a database,
separate from standard templates. Base plans are separate from coverage riders and
prescriptions, for effortless creation of all combinations. Changes to a plan or
template can be made once, and then impact all subsequent summaries created. There
are multiple opportunities to preview the documents, so errors can be caught before
the summary is created and distributed.
VUE Benefit Summary Tool is a better solution than a manual approach:
- Reduce errors that lead to costly non-compliance issues
- Streamline plan maintenance
- Simplify the summary creation process
Another feature that saves a ton of time is the new Coverage
Example Calculator module. Just pair plan benefits to inputs during setup, and then
automatically calculate the “You Pay” amounts that go on page 7 of the SBC document,
“Coverage Examples”. This feature alone is a huge time-saver, saving up to 15-20
minutes per document – and with hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands
of documents to be created over the years, this time really adds up.
Additional time-saving features:
- Copy existing plans and make changes to create new plans
- Integrate the database and system with other in-house tools using Web services,
- Generate PDFs in bulk
- Report and search on existing summaries for quick reprinting and customer service
Is the VUE Benefit Summary Tool really better than our in-house IT approach?
The answer: it depends. If your IT approach is well-integrated with your current
systems, is easy to maintain, and has a high level of automation, there would be
no reason to seek an alternative solution. However, if the solution is piecemeal,
time-consuming to maintain, still requires a lot of manual involvement, and is rife
with errors, than VUE Benefit Summary Tool can help.
- VUE Benefit Summary Tool is nearly always more efficient than a manual approach,
and could be more efficient than your current IT solution.
