Open Enrollment Starts

From Monday, May 5, 2014 until Friday, May 30, 2014, the Trustees of the Transit Employees' Health & Welfare Plan invite you to participate in Open Enrollment. During this period you will have the opportunity to:

  • Review your current benefit choices and make appropriate changes;
  • Enroll eligible dependents who were not enrolled when they first became eligible;
  • Enroll eligible dependents who were removed during the 2011 dependent eligibility verification audit;
  • Renew a prior opt-out election or opt-out of the benefit program for the first time;
  • Elect additional supplemental life insurance;
  • Enroll a domestic partner.

If you change your benefit choices, your actions will be effective July 1, 2014. You typically will not receive your new ID cards until early July. Your next chance to change your benefit plan will be May 2015, unless you experience a qualified life event.

No action needed if . . .

  • you want to keep your same medical/vision and dental coverage
  • you do not want to add or change dependents

If you had previously opted out, you must renew your opt out election or you will be returned to your previous coverage.

FAQs

I am not working. Can I stay on the Plan’s coverage?

If you are not working, but you are still eligible for Plan coverage under the collective bargaining agreement, you may continue your coverage under the Plan by making monthly payments to the Plan during your period(s) of leave. You must notify the Health and Welfare office when you return to work.

If you are out on Workers’ Compensation, you must also make your monthly payments directly to the Health & Welfare Plan because they are not deducted from your paycheck or from your Workers’ Compensation benefits.

Payments are due on the first of the month. It is your responsibility to make your Health & Welfare payments on time. The Plan does not send notices of delinquent payments, nor will it send you a bill. If you do not make your payments on time, your coverage under the Plan will end. Consider permitting the Plan to deduct payments from your bank account. Contact the Plan for more information.

Coverage will retroactively end as of the monthly premium payment due date if the required monthly premium payment is not paid within 30 days from the due date (e.g., if the monthly premium payment for September, which is due on September 1, is not paid by September 30th, coverage would be terminated as of September 1). If coverage is terminated due to non-payment of the required monthly premium payment, you may again become covered (on a prospective basis) by sending in the required monthly premium payment for future coverage. Your coverage will re-start as of the first day of the month following receipt of the required monthly premium payment. You will not be permitted to retroactively reinstate coverage for any period of coverage that terminated due to non-payment of the required monthly premium payment.

If you are on a leave of absence for military duty, you are permitted to continue medical, dental, prescription drug, and vision benefit coverage under this Plan for you and your covered dependents in accordance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). Please see the “If You Enter Military Service”  section on the Life Events page for more information.

If your coverage ends due to termination of your employment with METRO, you may be eligible for COBRA for you and your family. Although METRO will notify the Health & Welfare Plan of your termination, you are also encouraged to inform the Health & Welfare Plan to avoid any delay.

If you lose Plan coverage due to the termination of your employment or any other reason, you may want to look into purchasing health coverage through a Health Insurance Marketplace.
