Coteva, Inc. was founded in 2004 by TPA Industry Professionals with over 50 years combined experience in the employee benefits industry. Coteva’s primary focus at inception was providing data integration services to TPAs with various claims adjudication systems. In 2008, CEEM (Coteva’s Enrollment and Eligibility Management system) was created to build on that focus and provide an affordable, best in class enrollment and eligibility solution for TPAs, Health Plans, and their Brokers, Employers, and Employees.
CEEM eliminates the need for new hire and open enrollment paper applications, because employees make all elections and changes electronically. Administrators then process their clients’ eligibility online, and CEEM’s robust export functionality gets that eligibility to the appropriate carriers and vendors in multiple file formats. At the core CEEM provides end-to-end eligibility management with seamless data integration for an easier, unified way to manage employee benefits.
