Health Benefit Plan Initiatives for 2013

Health Benefit Plan Initiatives for 2013

Plan now to attend one of the upcoming health benefit forums to hear about the new and exciting initiatives planned for 2013! The dates and times are:

  •  Tuesday              September 25, 7:00 – 8:00 a.m.                  PB 204
  • Wednesday        September 26, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.                 GH 108

Along with the rest of the nation, Butler University is facing rapidly rising health care costs in the benefits we offer our faculty and staff. We believe these costs are not sustainable long term.  In response, we are assessing a number of health care initiatives we believe will be a significant benefit to our participants, and help us sustain the financial viability of our plans. We would appreciate your feedback at one of the upcoming health benefit forums noted above.

First thing to announce is Butler will stay with Anthem and will continue with the same plan choices: Core, Buy-up and Plus PPO plans as well as the Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP). We are considering at this time some minor increases to the deductible and maximum out-of-pocket costs for each plan.  Our dental and vision plans will remain the same, with minimal changes in cost.

Stay tuned for more updates and helpful information!
