Welcome to the 2020 Annual Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is a once per year opportunity to enroll in, terminate or change a health plan, and add or end coverage for dependents. If you do not make changes during Open Enrollment, your next opportunity to enroll or make changes will be next year’s Open Enrollment or within 30 days of experiencing a qualified event (marriage, new baby, change to benefit-eligible status, etc.), whichever occurs first. Please take this time to carefully consider your and your family members’ health needs for the coming year and make the appropriate changes.
The Health Plans will remain the same for the new plan year; consequently, if you have no changes, you do not need to re-enroll in the medical, dental and vision plans. Your coverage will continue into the new plan year. The 2020 Annual Open Enrollment period is as follows:
|Archdiocese of Baltimore Employees||May 1 – May 31, 2019|
|Catholic Charities Employees||May 6 – May 24, 2019|
Dental – The Archdiocese offers the following two dental plans. There are no changes to the plan coverage or rates for the 2020 Plan Year.
Vision – The Archdiocese offers vision insurance through VSP.
The 2020 plan rates are available from your direct employer or by logging into your UltiPro account. The medical rates have increased; the dental and vision rates have remained the same.
Health Saving Account Enrollment Form – Employees enrolling in the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with a Health Savings Account (HSA) may choose to make a pre-tax contribution on a per pay period basis. Archdiocese employees may request that form from your direct employer or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Catholic Charities employees will make this election through UltiPro.
Please see the benefit guide for additional information. If you have never completed a beneficiary form or have changes, please take the time to complete, sign and date it, and return it to your direct employer. If you choose to enroll in supplemental life insurance for yourself or your spouse at any other time except as a new hire or eligible change in benefit status, coverage will not become effective until it has been medically approved by CIGNA. Children are guaranteed issue at any time.
If you make no changes to your plans, continue to use your current card(s). If you change plans or enroll for the first time, you will receive new medical cards in the mail. You will only receive a Caremark prescription card if you are enrolling in a medical plan for the first time.
To print a temporary medical ID card after your enrollment has transmitted to CIGNA, go to www.mycigna.com, log into your account and scroll down to the “Print ID card” link. For a temporary Caremark prescription card, go to www.caremark.com, log into your account, and scroll down to “Print Member ID Card” under Plans & Benefits at the bottom of the page. If you have never accessed your accounts before, you will need to first register and then log in with your created user name and password.
You may print a dental, vision or EAP card by clicking below. Please be aware that the vendors do not issue these cards, and you technically do not need them. Your doctors/providers can validate your eligibility with the information you provide to them.
