Aetna Choice POS Plans

Good news! There will be no change to the Aetna medical plans for the July 2022 plan year. You will continue to have the option to enroll in either the Aetna Choice POS II or Aetna Choice POS II Carilion plans.


As a reminder, the difference between these two medical plans is in the member cost share for certain doctor's office visits. The Aetna Choice POS II plan has a $25 copay for an office visit to an in-network Primary Care Physician (PCP). With the Aetna Choice POS II Carilion plan, members who utilize a Carilion PCP will pay a $5 copay for an office visit. Under that same plan, if you choose to use an in-network PCP who is not part of Carilion, your copay will be $30 for a PCP office visit.

How To Enroll

Action Required

The deadline to make your benefit elections for the plan year beginning July 1st is May 6, 2022.

 

Annual enrollment is your opportunity to make benefit elections for the July 2022 – June 2023 plan year. Per IRS rules, employees enrolled in pre-tax benefit plans may only make changes to their benefits once per year during the annual enrollment period. Outside of the annual enrollment period, you may only make changes if you experience a “qualifying life event” such as marriage, birth of a child, loss of dependent status, etc. During annual enrollment, you may:

 

  • Enroll in, change or cancel benefit enrollments.
  • Enroll (or re-enroll) in flexible spending accounts for the new plan year.
  • Add or drop dependents from benefit enrollments.


This year, benefit elections will be made on our Workday portal. You can log into Workday using the link below.
