While the annual benefits Open Enrollment period concluded in November, now is the time to review your paperwork and online information to confirm any changes you made are accurately reflected and ensure you have the coverage you intended in 2020.
In addition to an online benefits confirmation statement, the state of Florida’s benefits administrator, People First, typically mails a printed benefits confirmation statement to those employees who make an enrollment change during Open Enrollment and who elect to receive the statement in the mail.
To view your confirmation statement online, log in to People First, select the “Insurance Benefits” box and then select “Confirmation Statement.” If you participate in a shared savings plan, you can also view or change a shared savings selection at any time during the year by logging in to People First and selecting the “Shared Savings” quick link on the employee landing page.
Every payday, but especially following Open Enrollment and at the start of the new year, it’s important to confirm that your insurance premiums are being deducted correctly.
A majority of state plan premiums, with the exception of flexible spending accounts, are deducted one month in advance. State-sponsored plan premiums (such as health, basic and optional life, dental, vision, etc.) will be taken out on the Dec. 6 and 20 paychecks for January coverage.
Premiums for UFSelect and GatorCare plans are deducted within the same month of coverage, meaning deductions for 2020 coverage will be taken beginning with the Jan. 3 and 17 paychecks.
Please review all deductions carefully. If you are switching between UF-sponsored plans and state-sponsored plans, be sure to review your paychecks for deductions that may represent duplicate enrollments. If your paycheck does not reflect proper deductions for your current plans or for those you elected during Open Enrollment, please contact UFHR Benefits at (352) 392-2477 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
