Open Enrollment for Employee Benefits coming May 22-June 10, 2023!
There are a few changes happening this year so it is very important to read all information you will be receiving regarding open enrollment.
This year will be an ACTIVE ENROLLMENT. This means you will have to complete the enrollment process.
Why are we holding an ACTIVE ENROLLMENT?
- We are adding a High Deductible Health Plan with a Health Savings Account option—watch for more information on this plan option. NOTE: this will be the no cost employee only plan.
- We are conducting a dependent audit during this enrollment. Dependent audits should be conducted every 5 years and it has been 7 years since our last one. Now is the time to find the documents you’ll need—marriage certificate if you are covering a spouse and birth certificates if you are covering dependent children.
- Dental is moving back to a self-funded plan—the coverage will remain the same, but you will go back to having one Premera ID card. Everyone should receive a new card & you will need to update your dentist with your new information.
Remember, open enrollment is the time to review your benefits & make any changes to the plans you’re enrolled in. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Is my health insurance plan the right plan for me and my family?—Open enrollment is the time to make changes to your plan election if needed.
- Vision coverage—you now have the option to enroll in vision coverage regardless of the health plan you enroll in.
- Dental option—Do you have a lot of dental work that needs to be done or does one of your kids need braces? You may want to think about the dental buy-up option.
- Should I increase my 457 Deferred Comp contribution?--Although this can be done at any time throughout the year, open enrollment is a great time to take a look at it.
- Life Insurance—Do you have enough coverage? Should you add coverage for your spouse or children?
- Should I add any voluntary supplemental benefits?--Open enrollment is a great time to learn more about the supplemental benefits available—Short-term Disability, Accident Insurance, Critical Illness & Hospital Indemnity
- Do you participate in the Flex Spending Plan?--Remember, you must sign up for this each year if you'd like to continue to participate.
- Pet Insurance—Don’t forget that you can insure your furry friends too. This can be done at any time throughout the year.
Bartlett Regional Hospital strives to remain competitive to assist in meeting our vision statement of being the best community hospital in Alaska. The hospital recognizes that our employees are our strongest resource. We recently had an outside entity conduct a comprehensive wage and benefit review. We are pleased that our wages are competitive, and we have brought up to market the few positions that were below market.
Our benefit package is strongly competitive and our generous paid leave program is one of the best in the Pacific Northwest. Bartlett Regional Hospital participates in the City and Borough of Juneau's self-insured medical program, which provides for a 2-tier choice for employees and their families. In addition, the hospital participates in the State of Alaska Public Employees Retirement Program (PERS), because we are considered a government entity with the City and Borough of Juneau.
