Special Enrollment Opportunity...Gustavus employees enrolled in one of the Health Savings Account medical insurance plans, please note that bariatric surgery will be covered only in the $2500 Copay plan for 2019. Through a special enrollment opportunity, you may yet change to the $2500 Copay plan in order to take advantage of bariatric surgery in 2019 if desired. Please be advised that this procedure will likely not be covered in 2020 due to changes in standard health care coverage and plan design.
If you wish to change insurance plans, please complete a status change formand return to Nicole Goebel or email on or before January 11, 2019.
 
Preventive Care Notice...In order to maximize employee preventive health care through discussions directly with a primary care provider and with the onset of the new Sharecare platform offered to Blue Cross Blue Shield members, Gustavus will no longer be offering an annual blood draw lab. As we start out the new year, now is a great time to schedule your preventive care exam with your primary care provider.
Please note that you have access to a wide selection of complementary screenings through your medical insurance. A list of preventive care services for adults that are covered under Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota can be found here. If you have been diagnosed with a condition such as high cholesterol, your provider may not bill that test as preventive as it would then be a diagnostic test if the condition is being managed by the physician.
 
Medical Insurance Cards... If you received two sets of insurance cards in the mail from Blue Cross Blue Shield and the group (GRP) numbers are the same, feel free to use both cards. However, if the group numbers on the cards are different, use the card most recently received. If you are unsure which card is correct, please contact Nicole Goebel in the Office of Human Resources for clarification.

An all-employee meeting will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 21, 2019, in Cec Eckhoff Alumni Hall. All employees are encouraged to attend to hear a progress report on institutional goals and other related topics.
