Notice: Health Plan Changes - Posted: Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Members, please be advised of incoming changes to the high-deductible health plan:

Due to IRS rulings, the high-deductible premium of $1,300.00 is illegal. The high-deductible should be $1,350.00. Therefore in 2018, the high-deductible will go to $1,350.00. Due to the higher deduction, member’s premiums will decrease by $5.00 per month. This decrease will be added to the members HSA, thus an extra $60.00 will go into their HSA.
