Medical, dental and vision plan information sessions – Hobart and William Smith Colleges \
The HWS Update

Medical, dental and vision plan information sessions

The Colleges have chosen a new carrier for health insurance for faculty and staff. This change requires that all employees who use the Colleges medical, dental and vision benefit to complete enrollment paperwork.

Several information sessions have been held, and enrollment forms (one for each plan being chosen) must be completed and turned into Human Resources by Wednesday, Dec. 5.

A general Open Enrollment session is scheduled from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3, both in the Blue Room. Representatives from Delta Dental and Eyemed will attend both sessions.

Members of the HR staff will have information and forms on the flexible spending account, tax withholding forms, TIAA-CREF forms, etc.

Because Aetna has been selected as the new health insurance carrier and the flexible spending account carrier, faculty and staff must complete new enrollment forms to have a medical coverage through HWS. Those wishing to waive coverage must complete a medical insurance opt-out program form.

All forms must be received in the Office of Human Resources by Wednesday, Dec. 5 so that new ID cards can be available on or before Tuesday, Jan. 1.

Those with questions should call ext. 3312 or stop at the HR office.
