Open Enrollment is your opportunity to evaluate your current benefit elections and make changes for the new plan year, beginning September 1st. Meetings will be conducted to discuss updates to your benefits package and to assist you with any questions or changes you may need to make.
These meetings will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes, so please plan accordingly. Remember to bring information necessary to add dependents, such as birth dates and social security numbers.
Open Enrollment paperwork is due to HR by August 5th.
We're excited to announce some exciting changes, this year!
Prescription Drug Formulary
BCBS will be moving your pharmacy benefit to a more cost-effective and clinically appropriate managed drug list.
Member notices and support: Members may be impacted if using prescription medications that are no longer covered, using prescriptions that may still be covered but at a higher payment tier (non-preferred) or may be subject to new utilization management program criteria before prescription drug benefit coverage may be approved. Impacted members may receive a communication alerting them of the change. The letter will explain how the change may impact them. Members will be encouraged to talk with their health care provider(s) about their prescribed medications and if any changes in their drug therapy may be right for them.
