Log into ADP to review your current elections, make changes, and make an FSA election for 2020.
What If I Do Nothing?
If you are happy with your current coverage, you do not need to do anything during this open enrollment period. Note: if you are enrolled in a UHC medical plan, you will be enrolled in the same plan type, but with Anthem, for 2020. Your other current elections, except FSA, will be extended to 2020.
Below is your per pay period contribution to participate in the various benefit plans. The cost of healthcare increased again this year, however PAVIR decided to absorb the 2020 increase and keep employee contributions as-is! The cost of healthcare increases exponentially year over year, and PAVIR sponsors the majority of the premium cost for employees and dependents.

While the personal beneficiary designated to your life/AD&D coverage can be updated at any time, now is a good time to review who you've designated, and submit any necessary changes via ADP.
If you plan to participate in Health and/or Dependent Care FSA, you must enroll in ADP for the 2020 plan year. 2020 elections will not carry over.
If you enroll in the HDHP you may also enroll in a Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA). This allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars into an FSA, separate from your HSA, that can be used for dental and vision expenses. It can also be used for medical expenses incurred after you have met the statutory deductible of $1,400 for an individual or $2,800 for a family. Please see your benefits booklet for more details.
We are changing our medical carrier from United Healthcare (UHC) to Anthem Blue Cross. We will still offer an HDHP, PPO and HMO plan with Anthem, as well as the Kaiser HMO. If you do not make an active election during open enrollment, your 2019 UHC plan selection will be mapped over to the Anthem equivalent plan for the 2020 plan year. Note that the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) is still in network with Anthem.
