Information and Important Dates for 2019 Insurance Enrollment
Cheryl Simpson, HR Manager
Land O’Lakes Member Cooperative Health Plan is busy compiling our insurance options for 2019 and getting packets ready for open enrollment. Information on plan options and employee premium costs will be coming from Cheryl in early October. Something new this year through Unum, the company currently providing the life and AD & D insurance, is voluntary group insurance benefits. Accident, Critical Illness, and Hospital Indemnity plans will be part offered to employees at open enrollment time for effective dates of January 1, 2019. Some employees may have these optional insurance benefits through AFLAC. If so, I encourage you to plan on setting aside some time once premium information comes out to evaluate whether AFLAC or the Unum plans are the best fit for you and/or your family.
Enrollment packets will be distributed the week of October 29th. These will be mailed to your home address. Open enrollment dates are Monday, November 12th through Wednesday, December 5th. Open enrollment is your only chance to make any changes to your insurance coverage options during the year unless you have a life change event (marriage, birth, death, change of job status).
