PacificSource Health/Dental/Vision Insurance

***Please note that ALL plans and rates have changed***

  • If you choose to make no changes to your HEALTH INSURANCE (not removing or adding dependents, keeping Dental/Vision the same as the previous year), you will not need to send in an enrollment form – we will roll your current coverage/waiver in the following manner:

If you currently have :                     Renewal rollover will be:

Waived         ->->->->->->->-> ->-> Waived

PSN 1000     ->->->->->->->->->->  PSN 1250

HSA 2700     ->->->->->->->->->->  HSA 3000

HSA 5000     ->->->->->->->->->->  HSA 6000

  • You MUST fill out an enrollment form if you:
    • Would like to move from Covered to Waived or Waived to Covered
    • Waivers must be on file for Affordable Care Act compliance
    • Are enrolling new dependents or removing dependents on Medical, Dental and/or Vision
    • Are changing plans
    • Example: You are currently enrolled in the $1,000 Deductible and would like to move to the $3,000 Deductible – you MUST fill out a new enrollment form with all dependent information applicable
    • Would like to enroll in the NEW $7,900 Catastrophic plan
