Employee Open Enrollment 2018

 

Open Enrollment begins Monday, October 30th and ends Tuesday, November 28th 2017, for all three campuses. Information packets with summaries, forms, rates, changes and United Way Campaign will be sent to your home address in early to mid-October so you will have plenty of time to review prior to Open Enrollment beginning. Pacific also invites you to attend the upcoming benefit fairs to get your benefits questions answered straight from the vendors.

The locations, dates and times of the fairs will be:

  • Stockton Campus - Thursday, Nov. 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the DeRosa University Center Ball Room
  • San Francisco Campus - Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Executive Conference Room 437
  • Sacramento Campus - Wednesday, Nov. 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Lecture Hall S2 and S3

You must complete an enrollment change form each year during Open Enrollment to enroll in the Medical Flexible Spending Account and/or the Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account.   If you would like your other benefits to remain the same, there is no action for you to take.

More information about Open Enrollment can be found by reviewing the 2018 Open Enrollment Guide (coming soon) and by attending the upcoming Benefits Fairs.

Thinking about switching health plans?...

Consider the benefits of the High Deductible Health Plan with Health Savings Account

There are many reasons for switching to the HDHP. Did you know that it's the only health plan that allows you to contribute to a tax-advantaged Health Savings Account (HSA)? A Health Savings Account is a tax-advantage savings account you can use for eligible health care expenses. There are many advantages to having an HSA, such as:

  • Tax-free contributions,
  • Tax-free interest and earnings, and 
  • Tax-free withdrawals for qualified healthcare expenses.

Money in your account rolls over from year to year, so you can save for the future. 

Your HSA is yours to keep -  you can take it with you if you leave Pacific or use it during retirement. Pacific contributes money to your HSA, which you can use to cover your eligible out-of-pocket medical expenses. 

How can you get help deciding?... you can call our Benefits Resource Center (BRC) (866-468-7272). They offer decision support tools to help you decide which medical plan you should elect. They can help you estimate medical expenses specific to your family's needs, compare the plans offered and project what your annual cost under each plan will be.

If you have questions about the plan, or any of your Pacific benefits, contact our Human Resources office at 209-946-2124.
