Just follow these three easy steps:
Step 1: Review and suggest
Our Small Group Online Renewal Tool helps you decide if your clients should stay with their plan or move to a new one. You can create a new quote from our portfolio of ACA-compliant plans.
Step 2: Take action
If a client renews with their current plan, you just instruct them to pay their bill. If your client wants to make a change, use the Small Group Online Renewal Tool to submit the request.
Step 3: Complete open enrollment
