Health insurance confirmation statements for plan year 2014 to be available through HRIS Self Service
Due to unforeseen programming issues, the open enrollment confirmation statements will not be available on the state's open enrollment portal. However, employees can verify their selections made in October on the HRIS Self Service “View Paycheck” feature in January 2014.
In January, log on to HRIS Self Service and "VIEW PAYCHECK" for the first and second paychecks in January. (Paycheck data is available on Monday of the week in which the Friday payday falls.) For the first paycheck — Jan. 3, 2014 — employees should pay particular attention to health coverage, flexible spending and the employee contribution to a health savings account. If there is an error, employees must send an email to R.J. Steelsmith at email@example.com with their October confirmation statement attached. This must be done no later than Jan. 10, 2014. Please be sure to include your employee ID number in the email.
Employees should also review their second paycheck on Jan. 17, 2014, paying particular attention to the HSA employer contribution if they are enrolled in Plan C. Please note the first half of the annual employer contribution is deposited into the health savings account, with the second paycheck in January — not the first check. Again, if there is an error, employees must send an email to Steelsmith at firstname.lastname@example.org with their October confirmation statement attached. Please be sure to include your employee ID number in the email. Deadline for notification to the Divison of Human Resources of an error is Jan. 24, 2014.
Amounts for the first half of the annual HSA employer contribution for a full-time member only policyholder is $750, for full-time member/dependent, $1,125. Part-time member only is $562.60, part-time member/dependent is $843.80.
