Account Structure

Your clients' account structure will have three account numbers:

Top Account — Your clients' group number preceded by zeros to eleven digits. For example, a group number of 12345 becomes a Top Account group number of 00000012345.

Sub-Account — Your clients' Top Account number followed by a separate ten-digit number unique to a billing address. Each billing address increases 0000000000 by one; in this example, a second billing address would have Sub-Account number 00000012345-0000000002. All sub-locations become Sub-Accounts.

Sub-Sub Account — Your clients' Sub-Account number followed by a 10-digit series of zeros ending in the number of eligibility sources you use — electronic, manual or both. In this example, two eligibility sources would make your Sub-Sub Account number 00000012345-0000000001-0000000002.

If you are sending enrollment forms or if you are talking with any of our representatives, you may omit all zeros, for example: 12345-1-1.

Bills and reports will display information according to the above account structure with the attributes being tracked at the subscriber level.

  • Employment Status — identify a subscriber as Active, COBRA or Retiree.
  • Employee Type — identify a subscriber as hourly, salaried, full- or part-time.
  • Union Status — identify subscribers who belong to a union.
  • Department — identify subscribers by their unique department within your company. If you do not track departments, this field will be blank
  • Benefit Plan — identify a subscriber’s benefit choice (ex. High/Low, Standard/Premium).
