Health Care Open Enrollment Month at Boeing: Nov. 5 - Nov. 30

IAM 751 members will be asked to select their health and dental insurance coverage during the 2013 annual enrollment period, which runs Nov. 5 through Nov. 30. Any changes employees make during enrollment will go into effect on January 1, 2013. You should have received an information packet in the mail from Boeing. Review enrollment materials, examine co-pays and out-of-pocket exprenses, and check list of network providers. Make benefit plan changes through your TotalAccess account. Puget Sound employees can choose from the following medical plans: Traditional Medical Plan, Selections CCP or Group Health. Most employees can also choose between two dental plans: Network Dental Plan OR WDS Prepaid Dental Plan.

If you don't take action during the open enrollment period, your current benefit choices will continue automatically and the new monthly contributions will apply.

2013 monthly contribution rates for Puget Sound are noted in the table below (rates assume completion of Health Assessment Questionnaire):

NEW: Member Pay the Difference Generic Incentive Prescription Program. For brand formulary and brand nonformulary prescription drugs from a retail pharmacy or the mail-order program, you'll be encouraged to choose generic over brand-name options. That means if you purchase a brand-name drug when a generic equivalent is available, whether at your request or your physician's, you'll pay the generic copayment PLUS the cost difference between the brand name and generic.

OPPORTUNITIES TO GET QUESTIONS ANSWERED
In an effort to help members make an informed decision, representatives from the medical, dental and visions plans will be available at each November Local Lodge meeting to answer questions regarding the various plans.

An annual enrollment information packet has been mailed to each member’s home. There are many online tools on the “Your Benefits Resources” website to help you in reviewing your plan choices. You can also learn about your coverage options, access plan comparisons and provider lists, and make changes by going to “Your Benefits Resources” through Boeing TotalAccess. Again, if you don’t take action during the open enrollment period, your current benefit choices will automatically continue and the new monthly contributions will apply. However, even if you are not planning to make a change to your benefits, take this opportunity to:
* Review your Health Care Cost Summary (review of out-of-pocket costs)
* Estimate your medical costs for next year
* Compare plan details (on the web)
* Research hospitals and providers

Study the plans carefully before selecting coverage. Review how different plans affect your out-of-pocket costs. Check lists of network providers to see which networks your doctor is in.
