Health Insurance Benefit Design Summary. The copays were increased and are reflected on this page. Plan Selection Form Under the federal Affordable Care Act, we are requiring a completed and signed Plan Selection Form to be submitted by August 21, 2015 from all eligible employees who currently do not have NACS Health Insurance Plan coverage or employees that are changing plans. Check one of the boxes for the plan you choose or the box indicating your waiver of coverage, then complete the bottom of the form and submit it to the NACS Central Office. This will also be included in your Orientation Packet on August 11 and can be submitted at that time. If you currently are enrolled in the NACS Health Insurance Plan and do not want to make any changes, you do not need to turn in the Plan Selection Form. A requirement of the Affordable Care Act is that NACS must report all individuals covered by the NACS Health Insurance Plan to the IRS. In the near future, NACS will be requesting social security numbers for everyone in your family that is covered by the Plan, in order to complete this IRS mandate. To be eligible under the Affordable Care Act, an employee is required to average 30 hours of work per week over the previous year. Therefore, those that are board approved for 30 hours per week does not necessarily equate to an average of 30 hours worked. This is calculated annually; therefore, each year, one s eligibility may change. Julie Striggle and Bill Mallers will be holding optional informational health insurance meetings, where you can also complete the enrollment process. These meetings are scheduled for: Wednesday, July 29, 2015, 10:00 a.m. at Maple Creek Middle School Thursday, August 6, 2015, 10:00 a.m. at Carroll Middle School Wednesday, August 12, 2015, 3:30 p.m. at Carroll Middle School Thursday, August 13, 2015, 3:30 p.m. at Maple Creek Middle School Monday, August 17, 3:30 p.m. at Maple Creek Middle School Additional information about the NACS Health Insurance Plan can be found on the NACS website, under the Human Resources Department tab.
