Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment for Health Benefits, Pre-Tax Options and Flexible Spending Accounts

We are continuing our group health insurance coverage with The Local Choice (TLC) and your health insurance premiums will have a slight increase for the upcoming year effective July 1st.  Open Enrollment begins April 6th and runs through April 23rd. Open Enrollment permits employees to:

  • review the 2021- 2022 health insurance rates and benefits (see attachments)
  • make changes in health care coverage if needed
  • meet with the AFLAC representative to elect pre-tax or post-tax deductions for supplemental insurance and elect flexible spending accounts (FSAs)

HEALTH INSURANCE

If you are making changes, the deadline to turn in The Local Choice enrollments and/or waiver forms to the Human Resources Department is 12:00 p.m. Friday, April 23, 2021.   If you are not making a change with your current health insurance election, no action is required on your part.  Should you have questions regarding health insurance benefits, please contact Victoria Lynn, TLC/Anthem representative at (804) 354-4011 (office) or (804) 489-7265 (cell), email Victoria.Lynn@anthem.com.  She is available Monday- Friday, from 9 am until 5 pm.

Enrollment packets with enrollment/waiver forms will be distributed at the schools. Benefit summaries and insurance rates are attached and can also be found on the Human Resources Division Website. 

AFLAC

In addition, employees can elect to participate in a tax-deferred Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for health care expenses and/or dependent care.  Enrollments DO NOT automatically continue from year to year. Should you have any questions regarding AFLAC products and flexible spending accounts, please contact Aimee Hardy at aimeehardy@cox.net.

A few facts regarding FSA’s:

  • Carryover has been adopted for health care and limited expense health care FSAs. Participants that are enrolled in one of these FSAs in 2020-21 will be able to bring up to $500 of unspent funds from 2020-21 into 2021-22. Remember, there is no longer a grace period for these two accounts.
  • The maximum annual election for a Health Care Flexible Spending Account and the Limited Expense Health Care Flexible Spending Account is $2750 for the 2021-22 Benefit Period.
  • The minimum election for the flexible spending accounts is $100 for the 2021-22 Benefit Period.
  • The maximum annual election for a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account is $5000 per household for the 2021-22 Benefit Period. There is no carryover for this account, but there is still a grace period.
