ID cards

You will receive a new Cigna medical ID card in the mail shortly after annual enrollment. You can begin using it January 1, 2020.

HEARING

Cigna/Amplifon replaces Epic for hearing coverage

Cigna will replace Epic Hearing Healthcare as administrator of our hearing benefit. The plan, provided through Amplifon, provides a hearing aid benefit of up to $1,400/person every five years. This means there are no deductibles, copays or coinsurance, up to plan limits, when you use Amplifon network providers. There are no out-of-network benefits. Visit amplifonusa.com/cigna or call 1-888-901-0811.

FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS

Health Care FSA contribution limit increasing

You can contribute up to $2,700 to the health care FSA in 2020; this is an increase from $2,650 in 2019. You must re-enroll in the FSAs each year to keep participating.

 

Did you know…the FSAs let you pay for health and child care expenses tax-free — yet less than 10% of MNPS employees participate in the health care FSA, and fewer than 2% participate in the dependent care FSA. If the FSAs are a mystery to you, check out your fall FYB newsletter. You might be pleasantly surprised at how much money you can save.

OTHER
