Open Enrollment begins Monday, May 17 and ends on Friday, June 4 at 5:00 p.m. (AKT).
This is your annual opportunity to review your benefit choices and make changes, enroll in a HCRA, and update your dependents and other health coverage for the 2021/2022 Plan Year. Please be sure to read the materials in your Open Enrollment packet to learn about important Plan changes and understand how they may affect you. Click here for the Letter from the Trustees and Open Enrollment Guide.
Here is what you MUST do during Open Enrollment:
- Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) elections do not roll over. If you want to have a HCRA in 2021/2022, you must enroll in a HCRA during Open Enrollment. (Remember, the IRS has a “use it or lose it” rule that limits the amount that you can roll over from year to year. While the IRS is allowing a full rollover of unused funds from the 2020/2021 Plan Year (due to COVID-19), you will only be allowed to roll over up to $550 of unused funds from the 2021/2022 Plan Year. Please calculate your contributions carefully.) Click here for the HCRA worksheet.
- If you are enrolled in Plan A and are enrolling your spouse, you must complete an open enrollment form each year and confirm if your spouse is employed and eligible to enroll in employer-sponsored coverage through his or her employer.
- ALL participants must complete a Family Information Form at the beginning of each Plan year. Claims cannot be paid until this form is completed and submitted. Click here for the Family Information form.
If you haven’t received your Open Enrollment packet by May 17, please contact the Administrative Office by phone at 866-553-8206 or by secure message on the website (aseahealth.org) via Contact Us.
