Social Security Disability Income Service
Today, many individuals with critically disabling conditions continue to remain employed to be able to retain healthcare coverage. Unfortunately, vulnerable members are often unaware of valuable safety net programs that are available to them.
Unlocking these benefits is a complex, time-consuming, and a notoriously intricate process. With the right support system disseminating awareness, education and service, eligible members can seek social and healthcare security to ease this burden and improve quality of life.
On the other hand, these members increase the average PMPM cost for commercial payers, resulting in benefits shrinkage and increased premium costs. The right SSDI eligibility and enrollment processes will result in a win-win outcome for payers and members.
With SSDI, opportunities don’t just happen, they are created. At Cognizant, an SSA rules-based engine drives identification and an algorithm-based outreach process delivers industry-leading member contact rates.
The secret to a successful algorithm is the data input and the right ecosystem for intelligent process execution with the right tools and technology. Cognizant’s TriZetto systems support multiple data streams and large data volumes to create insights for delivery. Based on the results that the system produces, team members contact and communicate with eligible members.
