The Check + SimplyInsured Integration enables any partner to offer small group health insurance directly in their platform in less time than a traditional integration. This enables them to:

  • Quickly test for product-market-fit

  • Add a new revenue stream

Creating a SimplyInsured Check Component

📘

Note: SimplyInsured requires that an email be associated with any company going through their experience. To enforce this, Check mandates that an email be present on the company object, or passed through in the request body to generate the component link. If both are present, Check will send the email in the request body through to SimplyInsured.

{
 "integration_partner": "int_Xf90bJAKE9Lf2jVjbgne",
 "email": "[email protected]" // use a unique email here
}
  • Grab the URL in the response body, and plug it into a new browser tab.
    Please note that the minimum height of the SI component is 550px, and the minimum width is 960px.

SimplyInsured Benefit Creation

SimplyInsured will create new benefits inside of Check’s system after employer enrollment and when a new employee is enrolled. Benefits are created the morning after an employee is enrolled.

The benefits created by SimplyInsured will be defined as period benefits within Check’s system. Here’s a guide with more information. To override the benefit contribution on any individual payroll, you can make use of the benefit overrides feature. While the underlying benefit object created by SimplyInsured will be read-only, benefit contributions amounts can be overridden on a per payroll basis using the benefit overrides feature.

Employee Termination

An important prerequisite to integrating with the SimplyInsured component is building support for setting the termination_date field on the Employee object. This field must be set shortly within a day of an employee being terminated. SimplyInsured reads this field to kick off the termination workflow detailed below.

Upon termination, SimplyInsured will send an email to the employee letting them know of the date until which they’ll be covered and other relevant information. In addition, SimplyInsured will send an email containing information pertaining to COBRA. The insurance carrier will also notify the employee about COBRA. An example is attached below.
