COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 2000- 26
May 10, 2000
|ATTENTION:||Agency Heads, Payroll, & Personnel Officers - Higher Education & County Sheriffs|
|SUBJECT:||2000 - 2001 Health Insurance Rates for Higher Education Part-Time Professional Employees and Special Deputy Sheriffs|
AUTHORIZATION: In accordance with the provisions of Section 5-259(l) and 5-259c of the Connecticut General Statutes and the SEBAC V Agreement, the following premiums have been approved for state-sponsored health care insurance plans for Higher Education Part-Time Professional Employees and Special Deputy Sheriffs, for coverage effective July 1, 2000.
PAYROLL EFFECTIVE DATES: The bi-weekly health insurance rates for the period July 1, 2000 - June 30, 2001 are based on 26 pay periods. The annual premium for all the medical and dental plans is unchanged. However, because the annual premium will be paid over 26 pay periods, instead of the 27 periods during the 1999 - 2000 benefit year, the bi-weekly deduction will increase slightly. The changes announced herein will be effective on the following payroll periods:
|Bi-Weekly:||June 2 - June 15, 2000||Payable June 30, 2000|
MEDICAL PLANS: There are no changes in the medical plan offerings for the period July 1, 2000 - June 30, 2001.
DENTAL PLANS: There are no benefit changes in the available plans. The patient charge for some CIGNA Dental Care Plan services increased slightly. Please refer employees with questions to CIGNA.
CHARTS: Attached are new and revised rates and charts "AA" through "MM". Charts are included only for those plans that apply to employees paying 100% of the premium. Paired D/OEs for both pre and post-tax deductions are provided on all charts.
NOTICE TO EMPLOYEES: The Employees Health Care Planner has been mailed to all employees who are enrolled in health insurance through payroll. Only the regular employee-share deduction amount appears on the Planner. Therefore, please inform those employees who are eligible to purchase coverage under the above statutes of the rates in this Memorandum.
