Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana Open Enrollment ? Plan Year 2018 Summary of Updates

Welcome to the 2018 plan year Open Enrollment for the Ivy Tech Health Plans

This presentation is an overview of the benefit plans changes for the 2018 plan year. This should be viewed in conjunction with the Benefit Open Enrollment booklet and the information found on the Benefits website.

Open enrollment is an excellent opportunity to re-familiarize yourself with the benefit offerings provided by the College and to change your benefit selections for the upcoming year. You can add or remove benefits, dependent, change amounts of insurance and more.

The plan year for our benefit programs is January 1st through December 31st, and aligns with the calendar year accumulation of deductibles and out of pocket maximums. Elections you make during this Open Enrollment period will stay in place through the end of the year, unless you have a qualifying event. More information regarding eligibility and qualifying events can be found on the Benefits Website.

? New combined Anthem/CVS Caremark ID card

The cost shares for both plans have been established for 2018. The College will pay 75% of the total premium for the Standard PPO Plan and 90% of the total premium for the Choice HDHP.

The 2018 premiums will be dependent on your tobacco use status. Tobacco users (which includes smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, and vapor) will be charged $500 in additional premiums. This amount will be spread over the course of the year. The College does provide a free tobacco cessation program called QuitNow. Successful completion of this program will result in changing to the lower premium, as well as refunding the additional premium already paid. More information on the QuitNow program can be found on the BeLively website.

As stated prior, participants in the medical plan will receive a new ID card that will include both Anthem and CVS Caremark plan information.
