Benefits Administration

Flexible benefits administration services

For self-insured employers, a key component of a successful health benefit plan is efficient administration of its services. Employees want easy access to their information and timely reimbursements, and employers need a plan tailored to their needs to help them manage costs.

Cerner benefits administration services help manage aspects of your health plan, while integrating with our workforce health programs to help improve health and lower costs.

Benefits for employers

With our benefits administration offering, CernerHealthPlan Services, we can manage aspects of your self-insured health plan, including medical, dental and COBRA claims administration. We can also manage your consumer-driven health plan accounts, such as flexible spending, health reimbursement and health savings. You can tailor your plan to meet your organization’s needs with flexible pricing options, including direct contracts and reference-based pricing, or access more than 140 traditional regional and national networks.

CernerHealthPlan Services helps make it easy for your employees to manage their health benefits with 24/7 online access to their claims information, timely reimbursements and responsive support from our service representatives. Using a targeted communication approach, employees can stay up-to-date on important information related to your program.

Your employees' claims data can be aggregated, along with clinical, pharmacy and wellness data, into our technology platform, HealtheIntent®, to provide a longitudinal health record for employees. The data from HealtheIntent provides insights into the impact of your health benefit programs, helping you make more-informed investment decisions. The platform also powers our services, including our on-site health centers and care management services, enabling clinicians to access comprehensive data in near real-time to proactively engage employees and close gaps in care.

Cerner also collaborates across vendors with which you work ― from pharmacy benefit managers to consultants ― to provide you with a coordinated experience and the flexibility you need.

To help your employees engage in their health, each person is matched to a health care team and given recommendations on well-being programs. Health navigators work to eliminate any obstacles a member may face in accessing or receiving necessary treatment.
