Important Open Enrollment Information
- Open Enrollment is the once-a-year opportunity for PEEHIP members to enroll in or change coverage, as well as add or drop eligible dependents from coverage. It is highly important for PEEHIP members to know that while PEEHIP is dedicated to providing members with many benefit options that promote health and well-being, PEEHIP members have the responsibility to take action to make educated choices during Open Enrollment to select the plan(s) that are best for them and their covered dependents. Visit PEEHIP's Member Online Services (MOS) website today at https://mso.rsa-al.gov to view your current coverages and make any needed coverage change during this Open Enrollment period to be effective for the new plan year beginning October 1.
- PEEHIP's Member Online Services (MOS) website at https://mso.rsa-al.gov is the fastest, easiest, and most secure way to enroll in new coverage or make changes to existing coverage. Enrollment is done in real time. A confirmation page is provided to give instant assurance that PEEHIP has received your enrollment request.
- The 2018-2019 PEEHIP Member Handbook contains all the information you need to understand the Open Enrollment process. The information available in the handbook is effective October 1, 2018.
- Members who are applying for the Premium Assistance discount will be required to complete the Premium Assistance Application (PAA) as these changes are not available through Member Online Services. Visit the Premium Assistance Program page for more information. New this plan year: Members should submit a copy of their federal tax return transcript instead of their W-2s and 1099’s. The transcript is free upon request through the IRS by calling toll-free 800.908.9946 or online at www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript.
- PEEHIP Open Enrollment Notices were mailed in June to active and retired members indicating the type of PEEHIP coverage(s) in which they were currently enrolled, and informing them about the Open Enrollment period.
- If members are satisfied with their current coverage, no action is required. Members and their covered dependents will remain enrolled in their current plan(s). The only exceptions are for members who want to renew their Flexible Spending Accounts or Premium Assistance Discount. Members must re-enroll in these programs each year.
Flex Open Enrollment
- Now is the time to make your annual selection for your Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). Remember, the flex plan does not automatically renew each year. You must re-enroll even if you want to contribute the same amount. New this plan year: Members enrolling or re-enrolling in the Health FSA will be able to use their Flex Visa Reimbursement Account Card not only at their pharmacy but also at their medical, dental, and vision provider’s offices. Flex Open Enrollment is July 1 through September 30.
