Aetna Medical Plan Options

Aetna Medical / Prescription Drug Plans

Exciting news for 2022 – Aetna will be our carrier for medical and prescription drug beginning May 1, 2022! 

 

While this is a carrier change, there will be no changes to how our plans work. That means what you pay out-of-pocket for the plans’ deductibles, copays, coinsurance, etc. will all stay the same for the new plan year.

 

Additionally, the paycheck contributions for the medical plans will not increase in the new plan year!

 

Health Reimbursement Account (HRA)

If you enroll in the Aetna HRA or Aetna Enhanced HRA plan, the College will fund your Health Reimbursement Account up to $750 for Employee Only coverage and up to $1,500 for Employee and Dependent coverage.

 

Health Savings Account (HSA)

If you enroll in the Aetna HSA or Aetna Enhanced HSA plan, Monroe College will continue to provide a contribution to your PayFlex Health Savings Account.

  •  Aetna HSA Plan: $500 for Employee Only coverage and $1,000 for Employee and Dependent coverage.
  • Aetna Enhanced HSA: $400 for Employee Only coverage and $800 for Employee and Dependent coverage.

 

The maximum you may contribute to an HSA in 2022, as set by the IRS, is:

  • $3,650 for Employee Only coverage
  • $7,300 for Employee and Dependent coverage
  • Up to $1,000 additional catch-up contribution if you are age 55 or older


These HSA contribution maximums include the amount contributed to your HSA by Monroe College.

Supplemental Life

The Hartford Supplemental Life Insurance

Supplemental Life may be purchase in amounts as follows:

  • Employee coverage: the lesser of $500,000 or 5 times your annual earnings, purchased in $10,000 increments
  • Spouse coverage: the lesser of $250,000 or the amount of the employee supplemental life coverage purchased, coverage is purchased in $5,000 increments
  • Child coverage: the lesser of $10,000 or the amount of the employee supplemental life coverage purchased; coverage is purchased in $2,000 increments


You must have or enroll in Supplemental Life coverage for yourself if you want to purchase Supplemental Life coverage for your spouse or child(ren).


The Hartford is offering employees an opportunity to purchase additional life insurance without requiring you to complete any medical information forms – no questions asked! Here is what you need to know:

  • If you are not currently enrolled in Supplemental Life, you may elect up to $150,000 of Supplemental Life coverage
  • If you are currently enrolled in Supplemental Life with less than $150,000 in coverage, you may elect to increase your current coverage up to a total of $150,000


For new enrollments or increases to coverage that exceed $150,000, you must complete and submit an Evidence of Insurability form to The Hartford for approval. Additionally, if you wish to elect coverage for your spouse, they must submit Evidence of Insurability and the entire amount of their election must be reviewed for approval by The Hartford. Contact Human Resources for the Evidence of Insurability form. Coverage will be effective after The Hartford approves your application.

Dental

Cigna Dental Plan

The Monroe College Dental plan will remain with Cigna in the May 2022 plan year. There will be no change to the plan’s deductible or coinsurance. And no change to the payroll cost for this coverage.


Monroe College’s Dental plan is a PPO plan, meaning the benefits paid by the plan differ for services provided by dentists that are part of the Cigna dental network, as compared to out-of-network dentists. Keep in mind that you will limit your out-of-pocket cost for services if you choose a Cigna participating dentist, as they will accept Cigna’s allowed amount as payment in full. In addition, the plan has a lower deductible and pays a higher percentage of the allowed amount for certain services (e.g., fillings, oral surgery, endodontics) when you visit a Cigna network dentist.

How to Enroll

Is Action Required?

This is a passive enrollment, so some elections you have in place today will roll forward to the May 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023 plan year and remain in place during that time.


Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) election will not carry forward to the new plan year. You must make these benefit elections each year during annual enrollment if you would like them to continue.


Unless you have a mid-year life event, your next opportunity to elect Monroe College’s benefits will be in March 2023 (for coverage effective May 1, 2023).


You have from March 7 through March 18, 2022 to make your election.  Use the ADP link to get started!
