If I am already enrolled in benefits, will I receive new cards? No, you can continue to use your current cards. Anyone who enrolled in coverage beginning January 1 st should receive their insurance cards by mid- January. If they do not receive them, they can contact the carrier directly to verify their address and request a new card to be sent if necessary.
Why did I receive a letter from my dental provider regarding choosing a primary dental provider? Some of the dental plans require new enrollees to elect a primary dental provider. The employee should receive a letter from the dental carrier stating this. They will simply need to contact the dental carrier and tell them who they are choosing as their primary dental provider. If this is not on file, when the employee goes to the dental provider, the dental carrier will state the employee is either not covered or deny the claim.
What if I need to have a prescription filled and do not have my pharmacy card yet? The employee can call the carrier (Express Scripts) to obtain their Group # and Member # over the telephone by providing their SSN. They can give this information to the pharmacy to verify coverage, or submit a claim later for reimbursement. Note: Once a Member ID is issued by Express Scripts, the employee can register online and/or download the application on their cell phone to obtain coverage information (including an ID card).
Will my W-2 reflect health insurance premiums? The Affordable Care Act requires employers to report the cost of coverage under an employer-sponsored group health plan. This includes employer and employee contributions. Reporting the cost of health care coverage on the Form W-2 does not mean that the coverage is taxable. This reporting is for informational purposes only. The value of the health care coverage will be reported in Box 12 of the Form W-2, with Code DD to identify the amount.
HSA & FSA Reminders: Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) deductions begin in January – they are not paid one month in advance like the other insurances. Employees have until April 15, 2014 to submit claims incurred on or before March 15, 2014 for their Flexible Spending Accounts and it will pull money from their 2013 FSA balance.
