To Make Changes

If you are interested in enrolling into a new plan or adding/removing dependents, please complete both the form for the plan you choose (available in Human Resources) and the Open Enrollment Change Notification Form and return both to Human Resources by Monday, November 30th at 3:00pm.

To Keep Existing Coverage

If you are satisfied with your health coverage and do not want to make any changes, simply complete an Open Enrollment Change Notification Form to notify our office that you do not wish to make any change to your existing plan coverages for the 2016 plan year.

**If you are a MetLife Dental PPO subscriber in 2015, you will be rolled over to Delta Dental PPO and a Delta Enrollment Form will be required for 2016. Please contact our office for additional paperwork required.

For your convenience, here is a summary of all plan rates for 2016.

Medical Plan Options

The Shops will continue to offer the same choice of medical plan benefits as we did last year. These plans include: the Anthem Senior Secure HMO and Anthem Medicare PPO; along with the Anthem Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, and the Kaiser Senior Advantage Plan.

Please note that plan options are limited to where you reside. For example, the PPO plan options are available to retirees in every state. However, HMO plan options are only available to retirees residing in Southern California, as the network is limited to this area. As a friendly reminder, please also note that in order to participate in one of the retiree medical plans, you will need to be enrolled in Medicare A and B.

Your plan options are provided below.

Dental Plan Options

The Shops now offers Delta Dental of California as the Dental PPO plan of choice. Dental HMO remains with MetLife/Safeguard HMO.
