How to Enroll

Action Required

The Benefit choices you make during your initial enrollment or annual open enrollment remain in effect for the entire year.


You can, however, modify your elections under certain circumstances, called "Qualifying Events". These are events such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, loss of eligibility under another plan. If you experience a qualifying event, you may make changes to your benefits within 30 days of the event or 60 days if the event is due to birth or adoption of a child.


You are eligible to participate if you are full-time and work a minimum of 30 hours per week. Your coverage will be effective 1st of the month following 60 days from your date of hire.


You will need to complete an election form if you are making any changes.

Cost Sharing Plan

Sedera is a cost sharing community that will share the cost of the large events in life.* The Sedera plan doesn't have a network. Please reference the Sedera materials and view the video presentations below for details.

There is no ID for this plan and no network. You will present yourself as a cash payer and start a "Need" on the member portal if the total goes over your $1,000 IUA (Initial Unshareable Amount). See "Sedera Select + Presentation" link below..
