Health Insurance Option Transfer Period Ends January 18

Health insurance rates for 2019 have been established and are now available on the Human Resource Management website.

Employees who wish to change their health insurance plan for the coming year have until Friday, January 18, to do so. We encourage you to complete the option transfer form (PDF, 78 KB) and return it to Cleveland Hall 410 as soon as possible. The coverage changes will be effective December 27, 2018. The earliest paycheck in which a deduction change will be made is the check of December 12. Based on payroll deadlines, deduction changes related to the option-change request may be made in a future paycheck and will include adjustments retroactive to the beginning of the plan year. This will result in retroactive premium adjustments.

The 2019 “Choices” booklet (1.4 MB), a comparison of the health insurance plans, and an Empire Plan supplement (790 KB) is also available online. You may want to review this information before deciding whether to change insurance carriers or remain with your current carrier for your health insurance coverage.

No action is required if you wish to keep your current health insurance option.

Please call the Employee Benefits Office at 878-4821 with questions.
