Consequences of not enrolling for 2016 benefits
If an employee doesn’t enroll, here’s what will happen with their 2016 benefits:
* Employees will have the same medical plan in 2016 as they’ve had for 2015. If they’re currently opted out of Purdue medical coverage, they’ll have no Purdue medical insurance in 2016.
* If they’re in the Purdue Health Plan Plus HSA 1 or the Purdue Health Plan Plus HSA 2, they’ll receive the appropriate University contribution to their HSA, but they will not have any contributions of their own. However, they will be able to begin future HSA contributions of their own at any time during 2016 by making a change through EBenefits.
* Any family members they’re covering on their medical plan in 2015 will continue to be covered in 2016, if they still meet eligibility requirements.
* The employee and his or her spouse/same-sex domestic partner will each be charged the $500 annual tobacco-user additional premium, if covered on a Purdue medical plan.
* If the employee is enrolled in a dental plan for 2015, his or her plan will not roll forward to 2016. Employee’s 2016 coverage will be limited to the preventive dental benefit.
* The employee will have no contributions to a flexible spending account (including health care, dependent day care and limited purpose FSAs).
* Other 2015 benefits will roll forward to 2016.
