Introducing Ben-IQ


Have you ever found yourself at the optometrist unsure of what your plan allowance is for new frames? Or, at the pharmacy questioning whether you're being charged the appropriate copay? Or maybe, you've been at the dentist office sifting through the enrollment cards in your wallet unsure of which one is current. Now there is an app for all those situations and more. Download Ben-IQ to your smartphone and keep all your key benefits information right in your pocket. 

Ben-IQ contains all the basic information about all your benefit plans. You can use Ben-IQ to:
  • review a summary of each of our plans that includes copays, allowances, etc...
  • find a phone number to contact any of our benefit providers
ASHA staff can find log-on information on ASHAnet, our online benefits system, or request it from anyone on the HR team. 

Ben-IQ will serve as a nice compliment to the United Healthcare Health4Me app that allows you to dig deeper into your individual health plan information. You can use Health4Me to access your id card, locate participating providers, view claims, see how much of your deductible has been met and much more. Between the two apps, you'll have all the information you need at your finger tips when you need it. 

Ben-IQ is available to us through Alliant, our broker. At this point in time, the information is maintained at an organizational level, but there are plans to have it reflect individual enrollment and plan information in the future. Please share your feedback with the HR team.
