Open Enrollment is Coming!
Open enrollment begins October 19 and ends November 6, 2015 at 5:00P.M. This period gives you the opportunity to review your benefit options and make changes. We are pleased to announce that there will be no increase in premiums for the UnitedHealthcare EPO plan, UnitedHealthcare POS plan, the dental plan, the vision plan, the life insurance plans and the long term disability plans. Premiums for three plans will increase. The dollar increases shown are for single coverage as examples. Refer to rate chart for the increases to all levels of coverage located in the Enrollment Instructions Guide accessible here: www.mncppc.org .
The cost sharing percentage of premiums between the Commission and employees/retirees remains the same for 2016, except for contract employees (term contract and seasonal). Beginning January 1, 2016, the Commission will pay 65% of the cost of premiums and 35% of the cost will be paid by the employee for this group of employees. Previously the cost share was 50%/50%.
In accordance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) we are required to offer eligible seasonal employees medical coverage. As stated above the Commission will pay 65% of the cost of premiums and 35% of the cost will be paid by the employee. In order to be eligible for coverage, the employee must have worked on average 30 hours per week over a 12 month measurement period. The Health & Benefits Office will contact seasonal employees directly if eligible for coverage during 2016.
