Employees have several ways to save health care dollars and help manage costs, such as selecting the Lumenos HSA plan, enrolling in the Health Care FSA or utilizing cost saving options for outpatient radiology. Lower costs enable the County to maximize contributions toward your coverage. With any plan you choose, as you obtain the health care you need in the most cost effective settings, you make a difference for your own costs and in the costs for others as well!

What you need to do:

  • Review your current benefit enrollments in HRMS (Employee Direct Access> My Benefits)
  • Re-enroll in Flexible Spending Accounts ( Health Care FSA and Dependent Care FSA)

Dental rates for all three plans will remain the same in 2017!

Please review the information on the website closely and consider attending an Open Enrollment Information Session. This is an opportunity for you and your family to learn about the 2017 plan options and to speak with representatives from Anthem, Delta Dental, and Navia Benefit Solutions (FSAs) as well as our Short Term Income Protection vendor.

During the plan year, employees may add/cancel coverage and/or add/drop dependents only within 60 days of a qualifying event.
