The current Annual Election (open enrollment) period for clergy and laity enrolled in the HealthFlex group health plan ends on Thursday, November 19.This is the plan that has health coverage provided by UnitedHealthcare and pharmacy benefits through OptumRx (formerly Catamaran). The default standard health plan for 2016 is the B1000 coverage. If you wish to have the optional CDHP coverage, you must choose it yearly during annual election. Also, if you wish to establish a 2016 flexible spending Medical Reimbursement Account of between $300 and $2,550, or a Dependent Care Account up to $5,000, this must be accomplished on-line by midnight on November 19. Dependents may be added or deleted from 2016 coverage, but you must provide the required form to Steve Zekoff, Conference Benefits Officer, by noon on November 19. Participants have been sent earlier mailings about the Annual Election process, as well as the coverage and premium rates for 2016.
