MedBen is pleased to announce the promotion of Erin Kelly to Director of Compliance and Medical Management. Kelly most recently served as Compliance Manager for the Newark, Ohio- based benefits management company.

Kelly started at MedBen as a Customer Service Representative in 2007, and also served as a Group Service Rep before joining the Compliance Department in 2011. Her client service history and knowledge of health plan language provided a strong foundation for her Compliance duties, said Vice President of Compliance Caroline Fraker.

"Erin has worked hard to understand and implement employee health plan regulations and to educate both our employees and our clients on related compliance issues," Fraker said. "And she has implemented new processes, including those in the Medical Management Department, to streamline work flow. So, this promotion is well-deserved."

In her new role, Kelly will oversee the interpretation and implementation of health plan regulations pertinent to MedBen clients as well as its own employees. She will also be responsible for educating clients and MedBen employees on regulatory requirements, including HIPAA, ERISA, and the Affordable Care Act.

"In addition to directing the daily operations of Compliance and Medical Management, Erin will continue to draft plan documents and SBCs [Summaries of Benefits and Coverage] to ensure that our clients follow state and federal rules to the letter," Fraker said.

Kelly holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from George Mason University and a Health Insurance Associate (HIA) designation from America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). She is an active supporter of the American Red Cross and Licking County Humane Society.
