OPEN ENROLLMENT 2021 & Virtual Wellness Fair

Open Enrollment: October 1-31 | Changes Effective January 1, 2021

Virtual Wellness Fair October 5-28

Tehama County’s goal is to continue to provide a great benefit package and manage costs at the same time. Our continued membership in the PRISM Health Program allows us to bring you affordable coverage for health, vision, dental, and life. During our annual benefits open enrollment period, you have the opportunity to review and change your benefits elections to meet your needs for 2021. A few items to note:

Changing your plan: Changes can be made by logging on to the self-service enrollment portal: If you have gotten married or divorced, had a baby, moved, or had any life event since last year’s Open Enrollment, you should also log in to make sure your information is up to date.

No changes to your plan: If you want your benefits to remain the same as 2020, and you have had no life event such as a divorce, new baby, etc. there is no need to log on. Your benefit plan will continue as it was in 2020.

PPO Plan: As a reminder, the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) option was frozen effective January 1, 2019. No new enrollments will be accepted into this plan during the upcoming open enrollment period.  Employees who are currently enrolled in the PPO may continue to receive coverage.

Volunteer Supplemental Life Insurance: Tehama County will continue to offer voluntary supplemental life insurance. Those employees who are interested in additional life insurance for themselves, their spouse, or their children may enroll during open enrollment.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA): This is the time to enroll in an optional FSA plan. You can use a FSA to pay for copayments, deductibles, some drugs, some health care costs, and dependent care. The money diverted from wages to an FSA is not taxed. The FSA limit for 2021 is $2750.

New! Live Health Online: For 2021, there is no out-of-pocket cost for employees to use LiveHealth Online medical, psychology, and psychiatric services. Log on. Choose your doctor. Start your consultation.

Changes to Covered Prescriptions: Based on clinical factors and cost containment, the list of covered medications can change from year to year. If you are taking a medication on a regular basis which may be removed from those covered by Express Scripts, you will be notified. If you receive an email, a phone call, or a letter from Express Scripts, make sure you don’t dismiss it.
