Previous S-Doc information

Previous information is provided for reference only and may be out of date. Always refer to the most recent documentation for up to date instructions.

September Roundup - September 10, 2015

Effective in late September, we will be upgrading our secure document delivery utility.  As indicated in last month’s employer update, current users will be provided with an email inviting you to set up a new log-in account.  Expect to receive this email around September 28th.  

Employer Update - August 25, 2015

Effective in September, we will be making a change to our S-Doc provider. On or around September 28th, you will receive an email inviting you to set up a new log-in account for S-Doc. We will forward these invitations to any employer who has accessed the current S-doc site since January, 2015.  If we missed someone or if you get a new user, please advise your PA, and CAAT staff can then “invite” the new user to join the site.

The new S-Doc will look a little different, but the functionality will be generally the same as you are currently used to. The name S-Doc and the way you access it will also remain the same. Some of the reasons for the switch are that the engine that powers the secure site is more up-to-date and user-friendly than the one we’re using now. There are some additional features will that help maintain the security of document transmissions throughout the entire delivery process. One main reason for the switch is that the new service provider is more cost-effective - as part of our mandate to be fiscally responsible, we are always looking at ways to save the Plan money. Selecting a lower- cost option for sending secure documents, while enhancing security, is one of the ways we can reduce costs and protect the personal information of members.
