Enrollment Companies Evolve with the Voluntary Market

Cost: $2,000; published 2015

Worksite Specialists have been an important part of the voluntary market for many years. While enrolling is a key part of their business, these companies are also typically active in both the wholesale and retail broker side of the market. As such, Eastbridge tends to use the term “Worksite Specialists” instead of “Enrollment Companies” since they offer more than enrollment services (although both terms are used interchangeably throughout this report).

Enrollment Companies Evolve with the Voluntary Market is the third Eastbridge report on Worksite Specialist services; the first was published in 2008, followed by an update in 2011. The purpose of the report is to help carriers stay current on the type and range of services provided by these companies in 2015 in the midst of a continually changing market. Specifically, the report answers the following questions:

  • What types of business lines and products do Worksite Specialist companies enroll?
  • What enrollment methods do they use?
  • How do they handle communications?
  • Which voluntary carriers do they use?
  • What are their main sources for cases?
  • How do they get paid?
  • What other services do they offer?
  • Are private exchanges a serious threat to the enrollment business?
  • What is the future for these Worksite Specialist companies?
