Plan Mapping

Renewing with the same carrier: 
  • As a best practice, we recommend aligning plan mapping in Zenefits with your benefits carriers'  plan mapping guidelines, per your renewal packet.  
Switching to a new carrier:  
  • As a best practice, this should typically be set to "Do not auto-renew." 

If plan mapping is set to “Do not auto-renew”, we will not roll over the previous year's elections and employees will be required to participate in Open Enrollment to enroll in coverage.


Cigna  PPO   A -> Cigna PPO B

In this example, the  PPO plan from the previous plan year maps to the new plan year’s  PPO  plan .  All employees that do not make elections for the new plan year that were enrolled for the previous plan year, will be automatically enrolled for the new plan, unless they decline coverage.  

Benefits carriers will provide what your carrier plan mapping should look like in your renewal packet; if you are unsure what your plan mapping is, please verify with your benefits carrier.
