Open Enrollment 2016


Once again it is open enrollment period for Plan C Health Benefits. The mailing of statements has begun and all statements should be received by the end of the Thanksgiving Holiday. This is an opportunity to enroll if you are not currently enrolled (if eligible) or the opportunity to make needed changes for the best possible coverage for you or your family. New enrollments, payments and changes are due in the Nation Benefits Fund office (in New York) by December 15, 2015. The effective coverage date is January 1, 2016.

If you currently participate in the Medical Reimbursement Plan as a stand-alone option you MUST provide proof of your other coverage by sending a copy of your insurance card along with the enrollment election form to continue in the MRP option. Failure to provide proof of other coverage will result in LOSS of the MRP option, and your insurance will default to C2 single coverage. Proof of other coverage submission is Due in the National Benefits Fund Office (in New York) by December 15, 2015.

Please note that all submissions of documents must be mailed as the NBF office is not able to download the documents from their site at this time.

Please take the time to review your own plan. If further assistance is needed, please call the office and ask to speak to Benefits Coordinator Lauralyn Walsh, she’s ready to help!
