Top 6 things you need to know about benefits open enrollment


Top 6 things you need to know about benefits open enrollment

  1. Medical plans for 2014 are all new. Study your options and choose the plan you feel is best for you and your family.
  2. Everyone needs to go into EBenefits and choose a medical plan for 2014 or indicate that they want to opt out of Purdue medical coverage next year.
  3. The stakes are high if you don’t make your 2014 medical coverage or opt out wishes known through EBenefits. You’ll be enrolled automatically in next year’s highest-deductible plan – the Purdue Health Plan Plus HSA 2 – but you won’t have a health savings account (HSA) through Purdue, and you’ll miss out on Purdue’s contribution to your HSA. Purdue is only able to open an HSA for you when you approve it by your enrollment.
  4. The new Truven Informed Enrollment tool will do the math for you. Truven uses your Purdue medical claims from April 2012 through March 2013 to estimate what your total cost will be under Purdue’s three 2014 medical plans, if you have similar claims next year. The online tool lets you adjust claims higher or lower, if you expect a different level of health care next year.
  5. Many resources are available to help you. From walk-in labs to recorded presentations, from help by phone to extensive information on the Web, assistance is at your service.
  6. It all ends at 6 p.m. (ET), this Friday, Nov. 15. Don’t let your once-a-year opportunity pass you by.
