HR announces new 2014 benefit session, plus online recorded sessions
Purdue faculty and staff turned out in big numbers for early 2014 medical plan information offerings from Human Resources. Because the early sessions were so popular, Human Resources has combined their content into a single presentation called "The Big Picture."
Faculty and staff who attended the separate sessions -- "Is a High-Deductible Medical Plan Your Best Choice?" and "Health Care: Moving Forward in 2014" -- do not need to attend "The Big Picture," which will cover the same information that's been presented in the separate sessions.
"The Big Picture: 2014 Medical Options and HSAs" looks at the dynamics affecting Purdue's medical plans and reviews all three 2014 choices. The session delves into the benefits of a health savings account (HSA) and explains how an HSA works together with a high-deductible medical plan. Sessions will be held at the following times:
* Oct. 16 (W). 4-5:30 p.m. Stewart Center, Loeb Playhouse
* Oct. 22 (Tu). 8:30-10 a.m. Stewart Center, Loeb Playhouse
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.
Recorded sessions available
Recorded versions of "Is a High-Deductible Medical Plan Your Best Choice?" and "Health Care: Moving Forward in 2014" are available now on the Benefits website at www.purdue.edu/hr/Benefits/Medical/recordedPresentations.html. PowerPoint slides from the presentations are also offered.
More sessions will be offered during the benefits open enrollment period, which will run Oct. 28 through 6 p.m., Nov. 15.For questions, contact the Human Resources Service Center at 49-42222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
