Intimidated by choosing a health plan? Benefits sessions arrive to help

In addition to the benefits fairs coming in November, employees can take a deep dive into Asante Health Plan options and coverage this week in HR web forums.

Open enrollment for the 2021 benefits year starts Nov. 1, but employees can take a deep dive into Asante health coverage with special web presentations all this week. Robert Begg, vice president of Human Resources, will walk you through:

  • The basics of the three Asante Health Plan options
  • The difference between deductibles, copays and out-of-pocket maximums
  • The four categories of provider networks found in Asante Health Plans
  • Where to get specific information

There will be time for question and answers, but hosts won’t be able to respond to each questioner’s personal situation. “However, we will do our best to ensure that you can get the information you need to understand our Asante benefits plans better,” Begg said.

The sessions will take place Tuesday through Friday via WebEx. You can join by computer, smartphone or call in just to hear the information being presented. The session will be recorded for later viewing. Look for the link on myHR.

Feel free to attend any or all sessions. (Note that the system works best if you turn off your camera and mute your microphone.)

These sessions are in addition to the open enrollment virtual benefits fairs taking place Nov. 2, 5 and 10. Those fairs will feature medical, dental and other vendors.

    My best advise is to really pay attention, I had surgery in December 2019, based on my insurance plan which I was very familiar with. That surgery led to another surgery only 3 weeks later but in the new year, I wasn’t clear on the new coverage changes, scared from the new diagnosis and it cost me over $5000.00. Please take the time to get educated on the changes and if you don’t understand ASK QUESTIONS.
