NEW INFO! – October 17, 2017
“Get to know your 2018 insurance” #1 – HSA change to Optum Bank
The United Health Plan SPD (summary plan description)
2018 summary of all benefits for full time employees
NEW INFO! – October 3, 2017
With the move to The United Health Plan will come a change to the prescription mail-in program we currently have with ESI (Express Scripts).
Effective January 1, 2018, the new mail in program will be with Optum Rx. While Optum will try to ensure all open orders transfer over smoothly some may not. Therefore, if you currently use the mail in service with ESI and plan to continue so with Optum, you will need to take some precautionary measures in order to avoid disruption of your medications.
- Fill your prescriptions as late in December as possible to ensure that your next refill isn’t due until late January. This will provide time after 1/1 but prior to the next refill date to work with your physician and Optum.
- Be proactive by contacting your physician ahead of time and asking for a sample to have on hand or an actual script that you can fill retail if necessary or just to let him/her know in general that you have a plan change coming so that they can work with you.
- On or after January 1, contact Optum Rx at 877-559-2955 to confirm your mail-in orders have transferred over without any issue.
- Do not call prior to 1/1 as you will not show active in their system until 1/1.

Notes of Interest:
Making changes mid-year (section 125/qualifying events)
The elections you make during the upcoming Open Enrollment must remain as is through the entire plan year 2018 unless you have an eligible qualifying event. A mid-year election change may be allowed if you (1) have a qualifying event such as but not limited to birth, marriage, divorce, loss of previous coverage, etc., and (2) want to change your election consistent with the occurrence of the event. A request to change your election mid-year must be done via a life event request in the Web Ben portal and must be done within 30 days of the effective date of the change in your status due to the qualifying life event or if the qualifying event results in change in eligibility for coverage under another group health plan within 30 days of the effective date of coverage under the other group health plan. Qualifying events apply to both joining our coverage as well as dropping our coverage mid-year.
What you’ll see on your pay stub
It is the responsibility of the employee to review their pay stubs on a regular basis. Reviewing the first stub in 2018 will be imperative to ensure that you’ve correctly enrolled in the insurance and HSA at the levels that you had intended. Premium deductions and HSA contributions will occur on ALL 26 paychecks in 2018. Any missed premium deductions will be caught up on a future paycheck and you will be notified accordingly.
