After the conclusion of a dependent eligibility audit an organization may prefer to continue to outsource dependent verification periodically due to limited internal resources. Circumstances such as life events, new hires, open enrollment and acquisitions throughout the year can increase an employer’s chances that ineligible dependents may be enrolled.

Ongoing dependent eligibility audits are typically conducted on a shorter timeline and usually occur quarterly, biannually or annually.

This type of dependent eligibility audit may be ideal if the organization:

  • Lacks the necessary resources and expertise required to oversee an internal program.
  • Experiences frequent employee turnover.
  • Added new unverified dependents through acquisitions.
