Medical Insurance Plan Information
In compliance with federal law, employers are now required to provide a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) and a Uniform Glossary for all health plan issuers and group health plans that are offered to eligible enrollees.
This SBC, created by the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor and the Treasury, establishes standards that group health plan sponsors and insurers must use when offering group or individual health insurance. Among other things, these standards were created to ensure that benefits and coverage information is presented accurately, in clear language, and in a consistent format to help consumers better understand their coverage and more easily compare coverage options.
SBCs and the Uniform Glossary are now available on the forms page of the HRD website (scroll down to the bottom of the "Medical Insurance" section). Formal communications will be distributed to all faculty and staff in January.
If you have any questions regarding this material, please contact your designated HRD representative.
