HEALTH BENEFIT NEWS
This video promotes HealthFlex Annual Election, including the all-new ALEX Benefits Counselor—a decision-support tool to help participants to:
- Review and compare HealthFlex plans. For participants who have a choice of plans, ALEX helps identify which plan might cost the least based on their unique circumstances; and
- Estimate reimbursement account contributions and out-of-pocket costs.
- Multiple documents and resources are available for participants on the HealthFlex/WebMD website, including FAQs, fact sheets, reimbursement accounts information, decision support tools (including ALEX Benefits Counselor) and much more. You are encouraged to browse the website (“Details and FAQs,” “HealthFlex Plan Benefits,” and “Consumer Tools”) for helpful information about their health and well-being benefits.

Wespath has implemented an enhancement to the single sign on (SSO) from WebMD to Blue Cross Blue Shield today. It now uses a more modern technology, which should bolster security (not that it was lacking before). Because the SSO will point to a new “website” (that looks the same as the old one), participants will need to re-register and accept new terms and conditions. Information needed to register includes: Name, Birthdate, and Identification number (not including “GBH”) and the Group Number from their medical ID card.
For 2017, Indiana Conference continues to offer three health plan options.
If you are happy with your current benefit elections, you do not have to make any changes, it will default to what you currently have. This is the only time you have to make changes to your elections outside the special enrollment periods where you experience a qualifying life event.
- All contributions to FSA, HRA or HSA will not automatically roll-over, you will need to make your elections for the amount of money you would like to contribute to a reimbursement account through your Healthflex WebMD during the election period. (compare accounts here)
- All current HealthFlex participants will receive their open enrollment brochure from Wespath Benefits and Investments during the month of October.
- HealthFlex offers you more plan choices—and provides supports to guide you through the decision-making process. Take advantage of these resources to select the HealthFlex options that best fit your needs. (resource)
