We have just completed the negotiations with the insurance companies for our plan year which goes into effect August 1, 2014.
Highlights of the plan changes are as follows:
- For this next plan year, we will be renewing our medical insurance with United Healthcare. Our medical coverage remains the same: the two-tiered plan with Base and Buy-up options. However, some premiums changed slightly this year. You will see that the vision portion of the UHC plans is a richer benefit, with routine eye exams every 12 months.
- Our dental coverage will remain with Guardian with a slight change in premiums.
- Our Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plan is unchanged. The maximum limit on the Medical/Dental/Vision FSA remains $1,500 and the FSA Dependent Care remains $5,000.
- Our life insurance coverage and voluntary life coverage remains the same.
Please read the enrollment document outlining the benefits and what, if any, actions are required on your part. All the forms that you might need were sent to all employees via email and can also be found on this portal. After you complete all the necessary forms, please return them to Denise Byrd at email@example.com no later than 10 a.m. EST, July 14, 2014.
