2020 Special Enrollment

May 11-22, 2020

The recently ratified collective bargaining agreement between WMATA and Local
689 requires that the current CareFirst PPO be converted to a Point of Service
(POS) plan. This primarily impacts the financing and will not affect your benefits
or coverages. Everyone in the PPO plan will be automatically enrolled in the new
POS plan. Additionally, the 39-month waiting period for New Hires to enroll in the
PPO/POS plan has been eliminated.

As a result of these changes, there will be a Special Enrollment. Anyone
who wishes to change medical plans can do so between Monday, May 11, 2020
and Friday, May 22, 2020. No other changes will be permitted. Enrollment will
be effective July 1, 2020.

I am on Workers’ Compensation. Who pays for my health insurance?

If you are on Workers’ Compensation, you must make monthly premium payments, at the rate paid by active employees, to stay covered under the Plan. Payments are not deducted from your Workers’ Compensation check, so it is your responsibility to send timely payments directly to the Plan.
