Sessions to explain 2014 medical plan options, review background

Faculty and staff can increase their knowledge of today’s health care environment and learn more about 2014 medical plan options at sessions Human Resources is presenting in August and September.

"Health Care: Moving Forward in 2014" reviews dynamics affecting Purdue's medical plans, highlights Purdue's proactive steps to control costs while continuing to provide high-quality, affordable health care for faculty and staff, and gives an overview of all three 2014 medical plan options.

"Is a High-Deductible Medical Plan Your Best Choice?" covers how a high-deductible medical plan with a health savings account (HSA) works. The session explores questions people commonly have when considering a move to a high-deductible medical plan and looks at the advantages of an HSA.

The sessions are open to all benefits-eligible Purdue employees and their spouses/same-sex domestic partners. Employees may attend in paid status with supervisor approval. Pre-registration is not required.
