Today Is the Deadline for UUP-Represented Employees to Enroll in the 2013 Opt-Out Program
Today is the last day to enroll in the Health Insurance Opt-Out Program available to UUP-represented employees. This program allows eligible employees who have other employer-sponsored group health insurance to opt out of their NYSHIP coverage in exchange for an incentive payment. The incentive payment is $1,000 for opting out of individual coverage or $3,000 for opting out of family coverage on an annual basis.
UUP employees who are currently enrolled in NYSHIP and wish to participate in the Opt-Out Program for the remainder of 2013 must return the completed Health Insurance Transaction Form and the 2013 Opt-Out Attestation Form to Cleveland Hall 410 by close of business today, August 30.
The complete Opt-out Program description, including eligibility requirements and enrollment forms, is available on the Human Resource Management website.
Please call the Employee Benefits Office at ext. 4821 with questions.
