Limitations of activating new employee medical coverage through traditional insurance companiesWhy can Bowtie Group Medical Insurance activate new employee medical coverage in as fast as 5 minutes*?Monthly premiums as low as HK$98**, eligible for 3 or more employees

With employees coming and going, one of the most common tasks for HR is to activate group medical insurance for new hires (commonly known as onboarding new staff’s group medical insurance). Traditionally, HR had to submit an application form to the insurance broker or agent on behalf of the new employee, and manually enter the new employee’s information, encrypt the documents, and send them to the broker or agent. Then they had to wait for the insurance company to send a notification of activation. The whole process took at least one week or more.

Understanding the challenges faced by HR and SME management, Bowtie provides a simple solution in this article for HR professionals who want to quickly onboard their employees for medical insurance — Bowtie Group Medical Insurance.

Limitations of activating new employee medical coverage through traditional insurance companies

As mentioned earlier, when obtaining group medical insurance through traditional insurance companies, HR needs to submit an application form for the new employee’s coverage activation, manually enter the new employee’s information, and send the encrypted documents to the broker or agent. Then they have to wait for the insurance company to send a notification of activation. The entire process takes at least 6 working days (T+6) to complete, not considering the fact that HR can only submit applications at specific times, such as every Monday or the first working day of each month.

From this, it can be seen that the traditional process of activating group medical insurance for new hires relies on intermediaries and involves a lot of document transmission. Some procedures even require waiting for physical document delivery, which is time-consuming and prone to errors. If there are errors in the data input or missing documents, the waiting time will be even longer.

In fact, HR only needs to choose Bowtie Group Medical Insurance, and they can activate the new employee’s medical coverage in as fast as 5 minutes* without going through lengthy waiting periods.
