Division Memorandum 2009-01
TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES
|ATTENTION:||Personnel and Payroll Officers, Chief Administrative and Fiscal Officers, Business Managers|
|SUBJECT:||2009 Health Insurance Open Enrollment Fairs|
Open enrollment fairs will be conducted throughout the state during the 2009 health insurance open enrollment period for state employees beginning on May 18, 2009 and continuing through June 5, 2009. Coverage selected during the 2009 Open Enrollment will be effective July 1, 2009
The annual open enrollment period is the only time employees may enroll in, change or add dependents to a health plan. These changes are not allowed at other times, except to allow for changes caused by or related to a change in family or work status which affects the health plan. Employees may not change plans outside the open enrollment period solely on the basis that their healthcare provider(s) are no longer in the plan network. The employee is responsible for contacting their agency personnel/payroll representative to file the appropriate forms within 31 days of the event that necessitates a change in enrollment or plan.
The purpose of this memorandum is to announce the open enrollment fair schedule and to provide an overview of the open enrollment process.
Payroll-related matters, including employee health insurance premiums and detailed information regarding the structure of the state employee health insurance plan for fiscal year 2009-2010, and monthly rates for COBRA continuation coverage will be transmitted to agencies through subsequent Comptroller's Memoranda. Personnel or Payroll staff who have questions concerning the open enrollment process should contact the Comptroller's Healthcare Policy & Benefit Services Division, Central Benefits Unit at (860) 702-3535.
Very truly yours,
Thomas Woodruff, Ph.D.
