2017 Open Enrollment
November 1-15, 2016
What’s New for 2017
One of the primary enhancements for 2017 is the introduction of Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) to connect your personal wellness and participation in Your Plan for Health (YP4H) activities with the amount you pay for health care.
A Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) is an employer-funded, tax-advantaged account that can be used to help employees cover out-of-pocket health expenses. Beginning January 1, 2017, faculty and staff enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan will be eligible to earn HRA credits instead of Amazon gift cards. Learn more about Ohio State’s Health Reimbursement Accounts.

This 90-minute webinar will provide you with information about changes to your health and welfare benefits for the upcoming 2017 plan year. From November 1 through November 15, 2016, you will have the opportunity to make new benefits elections and make changes to your existing elections for an effective date of January 1, 2017.
During these sessions, Benefits Consultants will describe 2017 plan changes and will address issues you need to consider when making your elections. I strongly encourage you to view one of the webinar sessions below.
