Health insurance presentation slides available; open-house session May 15

On May 7, a presentation was given on changes to health insurance plans effective July 1, 2019.  The slides from the presentation have been uploaded to the HR Portal site.  You also have an opportunity on Wednesday, May 15 to speak with a representative from our third-party administrator who can answer questions about our health insurance plans, specific claims, flexible spending accounts and health savings accounts. She will be available, open house-style, from 10-11:30 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. in the HR Conference Room.

Note about the online enrollment checklist

On May 6, a system email from Lincoln Land Community College was sent to all benefit-eligible employees, prompting you to login and complete the FY20 Open Enrollment Checklist. This checklist contains a series of online forms to be completed for open enrollment by June 6, 2019. One required form is for health savings account contributions. This is a required form, even if you are not on the high deductible plan and do not have a health savings account. If the form does not apply to you, simply fill in the required fields and indicate $0.00 for contributions. We must have this form available for everyone in the event that an Open Access Plan participant wishes to change to the High Deductible Plan.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the HR office for assistance.
