Each fall, there will be an open enrollment period for health insurance. At that time, you will be required to make a positive election to continue coverage for yourself and any dependents you want covered. If you do not make this election you and your dependents will not be eligible for any plan benefits for the following year. You may also add or remove eligible dependents from your medical, dental, and vision coverage. Any changes you make will be effective on January 1, 2018. You enroll by submitting a completed enrollment form to the Administration Office by the required date. Enrollment forms will be mailed to all eligible Members. Look for them in your mailbox next month. Failure to complete and return this form will cause loss of health plan eligibility for 2018! If you have had a change in address or have not received a form by November 30th, please contact the Plan Administrator at 561-5119 or (800)325-6532 extension #4240 or The UFCW Local 1496 Anchorage Office at 258-1496 or (800)478-1496 or Fairbanks Office at 456-6571.
