There will be 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.

Your Cost Per Paycheck
Our Medical and Vision plans incurred an increase in premium, so you will see an increase to your payroll deductions, for these benefits. All other benefits did not incur an increase, so those per pay deductions will remain the same, for the new plan year; however, you may see a change in your cost per pay for Voluntary Life, if you advanced to a new age.
As a full-time employee, you are eligible for the comprehensive benefits available to you and your family.
This Benefits Open Enrollment Microsite contains all the necessary benefit summaries and forms required to enroll or make changes to your current elections. Also available are some Health Plan Compliance Notices. Please review these notices to learn about your rights pertaining to your benefits.

As your employer, we automatically provide a certain level of life insurance coverage for you and give you the opportunity to purchase additional coverage for you and your dependents.
Employees who wish to supplement their basic life insurance benefit, may purchase additional coverage.
Annual Voluntary Life Benefit Increase:
Employees that elected Voluntary Life coverage during their initial enrollment period, has the option to elect $10,000 to $50,000 additional coverage during open enrollment, not to exceed $100,000, without having to prove insurability. This option is not available for your spouse or dependent children.
If you didn't elect this benefit, when first eligible, and decide to enroll during open enrollment, you will have to prove insurability by completing an Evidence of Insurability (EOI) form. This form can be found in the "How to Enroll and Forms" section. Underwriting will notify you of approval or denial of coverage.
