BN - Processing an ADM Event in On-Demand


An ADM (Administrative) event is used by Benefit Administrators to make employee enrollment elections and changes for Health, Life, Disability and Flexible Spending Accounts due to a range of enrollment reasons.

  • Please review the UWSA OHRWD Overview page to verify rules for enrolling or cancelling Health, EPIC, Dental WI, and VSP insurance plans prior to following this procedure.  Enrolling a New Hire or an existing employee for most Qualifying Events (example: marriage) outside their 30 day enrollment window is not allowed.  Additional rules and restrictions apply to when and how an employee can enroll for Life and/or Disability.
  • Use the correct Effective Date/Event Date to ensure service are not denied by the vendor and payroll deductions take at the appropriate time.
  • For institutions who receive a paper application from an employee, you must Finalize the Hire Event BEFORE processing an ADM event.
  • Process any open Events prior to the Event Date (Effective Date) of your ADM to avoid inadvertently cancelling coverage.  Any Events dated after the ADM Event will need to be reprocessed.  For more information on reprocessing Events see:  BN - Reprocessing Events Using On Demand Event Maintenance .
  • Remember to distribute any paper applications received based on the Benefit Application and Form Distribution Chart.
