Open Enrollment Wrap Up
We are pleased to announce that 99.2% of Maricopa County employees successfully completed their benefit elections during the recent Open Enrollment period. Thank you to everyone for participating!
The Open Enrollment page is still available for resources and information.
IRS Form 1095-C
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA or ACA) requires certain employers to offer health insurance coverage to full-time employees and their dependents. The IRS form used to confirm an offer of coverage and enrollment in healthcare benefits is Form 1095-C.
During the first week in February, all benefits-eligible employees will be sent a Form 1095-C indicating that they were offered health insurance coverage through Maricopa County for calendar year 2015. The form will confirm enrollment in coverage, along with the months of coverage. Any dependent covered under an employee’s healthcare insurance benefits through the County will also be listed on the form.
While the information provided on Form 1095-C may assist employees in preparing their 2015 tax return, the form is not required for the 2015 tax year. As was the case for the 2014 tax year, when preparing their individual tax return, taxpayers may use other information about their health insurance in order to confirm that they had minimum essential coverage for 2015. For purposes of maintaining proper documentation, employees should retain a copy of Form 1095-C for their records.
For questions about Form 1095-C, please contact the Maricopa County Employee Benefits Division at (602) 506-1010.
Benefits and Wellness Orientation for Newly Benefits-Eligible Employees
In addition to the County’s New Employee Orientation (NEO) hosted by Employee Development, new hires and newly benefits-eligible employees have the opportunity to attend a presentation that features important Benefits and Wellness information.
The purpose of this monthly presentation IS NOT to replace the County’s NEO, but rather to accommodate the Courts and/or elected offices that typically conduct their own NEO. It starts at 9:30 am at the Administration Building 301 W. Jefferson St., in Test Rooms A & B. For their convenience, employees will be able to complete a Biometric Screening and Saliva test onsite at the end of the presentation.
Click here for the complete 2016 Benefits and Wellness presentation schedule. Department Liaisons will need to submit a Benefits and Wellness Presentation Registration Request with the employee’s name, and department to enroll their new or newly benefits-eligible employee(s) in a Benefits and Wellness presentation. The registration request must be completed and sent to the Employee Benefits Division either via e-mail at email@example.com or via fax at 602-506-2354 NO LATER THAN NOON on the THURSDAY PRIOR to a scheduled Benefits and Wellness presentation. The Benefits and Wellness Registration Form is only to be used to register for the Benefits and Wellness presentation. If the employee will be attending the regular County NEO, continue to use the current registration process.
Get a Healthy Start with A Healthy Pregnancy Program
One of the best things you can do at the start of your pregnancy is to enroll in your healthcare provider’s Healthy Pregnancy Program. Once you enroll you can connect telephonically with a nurse 24 hours a day to address your questions or talk over any concerns you may have. You will also learn and practice healthy pregnancy habits and protect the well-being of your baby, and you can get rewarded for doing so.
If you are enrolled in a County-sponsored medical plan, you will receive an incentive when you participate and complete either Cigna’s or UnitedHealthcare’s Healthy Pregnancy Program. This year the incentives have increased, you can earn a $500 incentive if you enroll in the program before the end of your first trimester, or $250 if you enroll before the end of your second trimester.
