Annual Selection Period for Retirees and Long-Term Disability Recipients: October 20-31
October 21, 2008, Volume 55, No. 9

Between now and Friday, October 31, Penn retirees and Long-Term Disability (LTD) recipients have the once-a-year opportunity to make changes to their healthcare benefits. All changes will be effective as of January 1, 2009.

Participants do not need to re-enroll during the Annual Selection Period if they are not making any changes to their current coverage.

Eligible participants should have already received personalized enrollment packets at their homes, including information on changes for the upcoming plan year, how to make coverage changes, and specifics about the benefits offered. 

Retirees and LTD recipients are invited to attend an information session on Tuesday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Bodek Lounge at Houston Hall. Representatives from Human Resources, Penn’s medical and prescription drug vendors, Medicare and the Social Security Administration will be available to answer any questions.

Participants must return a health enrollment form by Friday, October 31, 2008 in order to make changes to their benefits for the 2009 plan year (January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009). If you have any questions regarding the materials in the packet, please contact Retiree Assist (Penn’s call center for retiree and LTD benefits) at 1-866-789-7366, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
