The annual open enrollment period for Town of Wellesley employees and non-Medicare eligible retirees is April 10th to May 8th. All current health insurance subscribers must re-enroll in a health plan during open enrollment.
This means that you must fully complete and return your health insurance enrollment form before the end of open enrollment: May 8, 2015.
Forms must be brought to the Human Resources Office, Town Hall, 525 Washington Street, on or before May 8, 2015. If you do not submit an enrollment form by May 8th, your insurance will be cancelled effective June 30th. Even if you want to keep your current health plan, you still need to re-enroll.
You do not need to re-enroll in your dental or long-term disability plan.Changes to your Health Insurance Contribution
Please be aware that the Town contribution to your health insurance premium has changed. However, there have been no changes to plan design, benefits or co-pays. Please review the new employee costs to determine which plan is best for you. The Town now contributes 80% to a Fallon plan, and 71% to the Harvard Pilgrim HMO, Tufts Navigator and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans. All changes will become effective for July 1st. We encourage all subscribers to compare the plans, network coverage, co-pays, benefits and costs to you and your family.
