Listed below are the NEW PLAN MEMBERS beginning January 1, 2014. UHC and Cigna will no longer be offered.

2014 Plan Options will be:
  • HRA Gold
  • HRA Silver
  • HRA Bronze

The New Plan Options are HRA Plans. The HMO and HDHP plans have been eliminated. Attached is a copy of the 2014 Plan Designs along with the new rates. The new rate will be deducted from your pay check in December for your January 1, 2014 coverage. Unused HRA funds will roll over to the new plans for future health expenses in March 2014. You will also have an opportunity to receive up to $480 per employee and $480 for spouse of Wellness Incentives. See "Wellness Incentive" attachment for directions.

If you or a family member is currently receiving or anticipate the need to continue certain covered services and/or medical treatments beyond 2013, and the provider is not participating in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of GA network you may request transition of care services. Transition of  care services allows a member to continue to obtain certain ongoing services and/or treatments from out of network provider for an approved period of time. You must  contact Blue Cross Blue Shield customer service no later than December 31, 2013.

Each covered family member will receive their own ID card which will be valid for all three of our vendors.

Each employee that has medical insurance MUST go online to select your new plan option. See Attachment "Instructions for Open Enrollment."  If you fail to go online and select a new plan you will automatically be enrolled in the HRA Bronze Plan by default. The tobacco surcharge of $80.00 will still be applied if you or any of your covered dependents use tobacco. Each person will be responsible for making the changes themselves online. Myra Underwood and Diane Adams will be available at the central office daily to assist anyone that does not have internet access or answer any questions you may have.
