Why Authorized Representatives are Important
Covered California for Small Business (CCSB) is committed to providing employers with the tools and resources to simplify managing your employees' benefits. We created ASKCCSB to answer your frequently asked questions.
What is an Authorized Representative?
An Authorized Representative is a trusted individual who you choose to act on your behalf to make updates and/or changes to your benefits plan; this can include your Insurance Agent or an Employee.
Why is it important to add an Authorized Representative?
To protect your privacy and the sensitive health information associated with each account, Covered California for Small Business Customer Service can only discuss your account with authorized representatives. If you want to assign an individual to discuss your account, including discussing billing or an invoice, you must add them as an Authorized Representative.
How do I add an Authorized Representative?
If you did not add an Authorized Representative upon your group's signup, you can submit this update through a CCSB Employer Change Form.
