Enrollment Period: Oct. 31 - Nov. 11
As a University System of Georgia (USG) employee, you have numerous benefit options available to you. Open Enrollment is an annual opportunity for you to review current benefit elections and determine whether adjustments are needed. In 2017, USG and Georgia Tech continue to offer a comprehensive benefits package to employees. After reviewing your options on the USG Enrollment page, elect your 2017 benefits via TechWorks. See below for more details and how to enroll.
Georgia Tech has partnered with the USG’s Shared Services Center to provide individualized support to employees, including expanded hours. Representatives will be available Oct. 31 through Nov. 11, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The call center will also remain open until 8 p.m. on the last two days of Open Enrollment.
NEW 2017 Pharmacy Changes: The University System of Georgia has released pharmacy changes for 2017. Pharmacy changes often involve pricing shifts and drugs being removed or added to healthcare coverage. Please be sure to consult the various documents on the USG’s website to see whether medications you use are affected.
Should you find that a particular change impacts your ability to obtain or pay for a drug, you might want to consider enrolling in or increasing your contributions to a tax-free healthcare flexible spending account (FSA). Enrollment in FSAs can only be done during Open Enrollment – which ends on Nov. 11. USG members who may be impacted by the drug exclusions list will begin receiving notification from CVS Caremark this week, providing them with additional instructions on actions they will need to take with their primary care provider.
