NEW FOR 2014
Waiver of Coverage
To continue to receive the Waiver Credit of $119.23 per paycheck, employees who waive health coverage must provide proof of other health coverage by December 23, 2013.

Spousal/Domestic Partner Surcharge
If you enroll a spouse or domestic partner in 2014 you will be required to complete an online Spousal/DP Affidavit indicating whether your spouse/DP is employed. If employed, and if health coverage is available through their employer, you will incur a $20 bi-weekly surcharge. See Your Benefits & You book for details.

Health
New, lower costing, High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) paired with a Health Savings Account (HSA) added to benefit plan options. See details in your 2014 Open Enrollment packet.
Enhancement to all plans: Coverage for hearing exams.
Premium increase: for CDH High, CDH Low and CDH Out of Network plans.

Wellness Incentive for employees and spouses/domestic partners
The Rx copay will be waived for generic and formulary maintenance medications for asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular (congestive heart failure, hypertension, chronic kidney disease) disease if finger stick screening, health risk assessment and disease management coaching are completed through the HumanaVitality program.

Dental
DHMO and PPO dental plans are currently in the procurement process. As such, any elections that you make during open enrollment will be for coverage from 1/1/14 - 3/31/14. A special open enrollment for dental coverage will be held in February/March for coverage effective 4/1/14.

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
Plans migrated from FBMC to WageWorks effective September 15, 2013.

Legal Insurance
Annual opportunity to enroll in the U.S. Legal plan. Although employees can cancel coverage at any time during the year, this is the only opportunity to enroll in the plan for 2014.

All other after-tax benefit deductions such as optional life, long term disability, long term care, AFLAC, etc. will rollover, where applicable, without you having to take further action.

HOW TO NAVIGATE THE ONLINE SYSTEM
You may submit as many electronic enrollment submissions as you wish up to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 22, 2013; however, the submission with the most recent date will be the one processed. If you make any changes online, you must go through the complete process and SUBMIT or else your changes will not be accepted. The on-line application has been developed to prompt you through the process; however, where certain information is mandatory, the system will not proceed until you enter the required information. After the enrollment period ends, you may go online to view and print your Confirmation Statement.

Once you are ready to use the online enrollment system you should use your mouse or "Tab" key to navigate to each section. DO NOT USE the "BACK" OR "FORWARD" BUTTONS LOCATED ON THE TOOLBAR ON YOUR BROWSER SCREEN. Instead, use the links provided by the program to get to and from each page. For your convenience, an Employee User Guide has been developed to guide you through this online process and can be accessed from the Open Enrollment section of "Your Benefits & You" website.
