What Is a Plan Administrator?
A plan administrator is the person or company an employer selects to manage its health benefits plan(s). The administrator works with the plan provider to ensure that the plan meets government regulations. In many cases, companies administer their own plans and the responsibility falls to an individual or group of individuals working for the company who take on the tasks of plan selection and administrative decision-making.
