Dear Plan Participant:
Open Enrollment will begin on July 1st and continue thru July 15th, 2022.
It is only during the Fund’s Open Enrollment period that you have the opportunity to make changes to your medical coverage provided through the District Council 37 Head Start Employee’s Welfare Fund. If you are currently enrolled in the Plan no action needs to be taken, your coverage will continue as is.
However, if you wish to enroll from another plan’s coverage or make any changes to your current coverage, you must complete the Fund’s Enrollment Change Form and return it to the Fund office before the July 15, 2022 deadline. If you have not previously enrolled in the Fund, this is your only opportunity to enroll for the new benefit period beginning on August 1, 2022.
Changes for 2022 Benefit Period
For the new benefit period, the employees shared premium cost share will remain $104.30 single / $271.17 family per month.
The Plan has made certain benefit modifications as described in the Summary of Material Modifications previously sent to all enrolled participants. A copy of this notice frequently asked questions, and all Open enrollment forms are available on the Funds Website at www.dc1707l95wf.net
