HealthFlex Exchange Election Workshop
October 13, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
At annual conference this year legislation was approved for a new health insurance program beginning in 2016 for participants currently covered under the consumer driven health plan.
The name of the new program is called HealthFlex Exchange. Many participants attended a preconference meeting where we discussed this new program. The follow-up election workshop has now been scheduled. This is a complicated change that will require each participant to make an election between 5 different medical, 3 dental and 2 vision plans with a set amount of money.
The workshop will help sort out which plans could work best for the participant including a live demo of the election process and video. Every participant must make their best effort to attend the workshop so will be making the most educated decision rather than the default that has been preset if no election is made.
The 2 hour workshop is scheduled as follows around the conference;
- Tuesday, October 13th at Ellensburg UMC from 9:30am – 11:30am
- Tuesday, October 13th at Pasco: Riverview UMC from 3pm- 5pm
