Learn how a southern grocery store chain partnered with Hodges-Mace to help manage their part-time population in respect to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Hodges-Mace helped them transition from a paper enrollment company to a self-service environment. In a phased approach, year one utilized Benefit Counselors to introduce the SmartBen enrollment system and educate employees on their benefits.

  • More than 90% of employees said that after their session with a Benefit Counselor, “I now have a greater appreciation and understanding of my benefits.”
  • The goal is for all employees to feel comfortable to self-enroll in SmartBen in year two.
  • Hodges-Mace has been helping this grocery store chain since 2015.
  • Year 1 involved educating employees on the new Accident, Critical Illness, Voluntary Life, and Voluntary Long-Term Disability offerings
