BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD DENTAL BLUE - OPEN ENROLLMENT
Open enrollment for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Dental Blue program is July 1st, 2017. Attached, you will find the enrollment/change form, new rates for FY17/18 and the summary of benefits.
The attached enrollment form is to be used for new enrollment and changes to your existing coverage. If you are already enrolled in the dental plan and do not need to make any changes to your coverage, you do not need to complete a new enrollment form. Your coverage will automatically roll-over to the new year.
If you want to cancel your dental coverage for FY18, please let me know a.s.a.p. or by June 1st.
The deadline for enrollment and changes is Wednesday, June 14th.
HEALTH INSURANCE - OPEN ENROLLMENT
Please note that July 1, 2017 is the open enrollment date for anyone who would like to sign up for health insurance. This is also the time to make any changes to your existing coverage such as switching from a PPO to an HMO, adding a dependent, etc. You will find the FY18 rates attached.
The deadline for enrollment is Wednesday, June 14th.
If you would like to enroll or make any changes to your health plan, please call or email me and I will inform you on how to proceed.
FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT PROGRAM
It is open enrollment time for the Flexible Spending Account program. The deadline to sign up is Friday, June 2nd. If you already have an FSA, you will still need to complete a new application for the upcoming year. The application and list of eligible expenses is attached.
The maximum contribution for medical expenses will be $2,000 per year. Also, there will be a $500 carry-over from one plan year to the next. These funds can be used at any time during the entire subsequent plan year.
For those of you not familiar with the FSA concept, it is a voluntary employee benefit plan which allows employees to set aside a pre-determined amount of money each year on a pre-tax basis to pay for allowable medical expenses not covered by a health plan.
The FSA can also be used for dependent care expenses with a maximum yearly contribution of $5,000.
There are no fees to participants.
If you were a participant this year, please continue to use the same debit card for the upcoming year. TASC, the plan administrator, will automatically re-load your card for your elected amount.
Completed applications should be returned to me at the Central Office. E-mailed or scanned forms are also acceptable. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
