Did You Know?

The Benefits Vendor File Schedule Calendar - 2024 is available on UCPath.  

  • The vendor file serves as a crucial tool to track when employee enrollments and demographic changes are reflected with the vendor. Here's a breakdown of what each type of file includes:
    • Changes Files: Capture new enrollments, enrollment changes, and terminations.
    • Full Files: Encompass all active enrollments, new terminations since the last change file, and demographic changes (address change, name change, gender change, DOB, SSN).
  • For Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs):
    • Changes Files: Cover new enrollments, terminations, mid-year changes (increases/decreases of annual pledges), and both bi-weekly and monthly contributions.
    • Monthly Files: Include all active enrollments and demographic changes.
  • Regarding Social Security Numbers (SSNs):
    • Anthem, VSP, Delta Dental, Principal (PD), HealthNet (Active), WEX (FSAs), and Health Equity (HSAs) do not accept enrollments/contributions for employees without SSNs.
  • Address Requirements:
    • HMO enrollments require a U.S. Home Address (no P.O. Box).
  • Important Note:
    • Newly enrolled employees should allow for the weekly file to reach the vendor. Expedited enrollment requests are reserved exclusively for urgent medical services and prescription needs.
    • Excluding for COBRA and Open Enrollment files, UCPath files to vendors do not send future data (e.g., new enrollments, changes, terminations, etc.). For example, a new enrollment effective 3/1/24, will be sent to the vendor on 3/5/24.
