Important differences between Carriers

Please select your carrier from the dropdowns below to learn how they process new enrollments.

Benefits by Design (BBD), Canada Life, Equitable Life or GroupSource

Humi will receive a notification to send the carrier enrollment email to the employee. Humi will be responsible for reminding employees to complete their enrollment within the enrollment period. If an employee still has not completed their enrollment within 31 days of their effective date, they will be classified as a late applicant.

Sun Life, Empire Life, Manulife, or Medavie Blue Cross

The employee will receive an email notifying them that they have a document that requires their signature on Humi. They will also receive an Action Required task on their Humi homepage. The employee will be prompted to complete their enrollment form directly on Humi.

Once completed, Humi will receive a copy of their enrollment form and enrol the employee on the insurance carrier portal for you.
