Key Points to Remember:

  • If you want to keep your same insurance coverage for 2018, no action is required on your part.
  • If you do not take any action, your insurance coverage at 12/31/17 will remain in effect for 2018.
  • Participation in Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) require re-enrollment during Annual Enrollment every year.
  • Contributions to the Pelican Health Savings Account (HSA) requires re-enrollment every year. Re-enrollment may be requested at any time.
  • If you wish to waive health insurance coverage for 2018, a health waiver form is required.
  • A Qualified Life Event may be required to make changes to your enrollment elections once Annual Enrollment ends. Changes due to a Qualified Life Event must be requested within 30 days of the event.
