2013 Health Insurance Rates and Option Transfer Period
Health insurance rates for 2013 have been established and are available at www.buffalostate.edu/offices/hr/benefits.asp#rates.
Employees who wish to change their health insurance plans for the coming year have until Monday, December 31, 2012. We encourage you to complete and return the option transfer form to Cleveland Hall 410 as soon as possible. This will avoid retroactive premium adjustments and should allow you to receive new health plan identification cards closer to the coverage effective date of January 3, 2013.
"Choices,” a summary of health insurance plans, is now available online. There are two versions: one for settled contracts, and another for unsettled contracts. You may want to review this summary before deciding to change insurance carriers or to remain with your current carriers for your health insurance coverage.
Representatives from BlueCross Blue Shield of WNY (Community Blue), Independent Health, and the Empire Plan will be on campus on Thursday, December 6, in E. H. Butler Library 210 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. to answer questions about current health insurance plans and anticipated changes in coverage for 2013.
No action is required if you wish to keep your current health insurance option.
Please call Human Resource Management at ext. 4821 with questions.
