Gearing Up For Open Enrollment

Dear Delphi Retiree or Eligible Dependent:

Our annual Open Enrollment period is just around the corner. It’s time to start thinking about your 2015 benefit elections. The open enrollment period will depend on your age as follows:

 

PRE-65 & PRE-65 MEDICARE DISABLED

POST-65

October 15th – November 14th

October 15th – November 30th

(dental & vision)

 

October 15th – December 7th
(medical – the deadline aligns with the official Medicare
open enrollment period)

 

The DSRA-BT Board of Directors has been working diligently over the past several months evaluating options and negotiating rates. We are eager to share with you the 2015 benefit plans when our open enrollment kicks off in October. Until then, here is a glimpse of what is staying the same and what is new to our benefit plans next year:

* Continued partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan for pre-65 and pre-65 Medicare disabled medical/prescription benefits.

* No changes to the existing pre-65 medical plan designs – the same GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE plans as we offer today. However, we are introducing a fourth plan option – COPPER – to select from. The GOLD and SILVER plans are traditional PPO pre-65 medical/prescription plan options. The BRONZE and COPPER plans are High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP) which offers the opportunity to establish a Health Savings Account (HSA).

* Continued partnership with SelectQuote for our post-65 members which allows Medicare eligible retirees a “hybrid” solution and choice between the medical/prescription plans option through The Hartford or an “individual” Medicare supplement, Medicare Advantage and Part D prescription plan in your area; a SelectQuote counselor will be available to help you evaluate your options.

* Continued partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan for pre- and post-65 dental benefits with no changes to benefits.

* No changes to the vision insurance benefits through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the VSP network for pre- and post-65 members.

* Continued voluntary life insurance benefits through Reliance Standard with reduced rates for 2015 (for our Delphi salaried retirees only).

 

Further details about our benefits will be posted to our website – www.dsrabenefittrust.net – in early October. We will send an email blast when it’s available. We encourage you to review the benefit information carefully and ask that you make prompt decisions regarding your 2015 benefit elections.

 

Stay tuned for more information!

Update on Payment Method Difficulties with BCBS of Michigan

Two of the payment methods that we have previously provided information on to you are not available currently to participants in the DSRA BT. They are:

  1. Utilization of your personal bank (checking or savings) bill pay service. With 3 days left in the month, we would advise all to set up their payment by calling BCBSM and allowing them to draft the payment from your checking account.
  2. Making a one time payment with a credit card over the phone. We have no information at this time as to when and if this method of payment will ever be made available to our members.

When you call BCBSM at 877-354-2583, please use menu choice- I am already a member.This will expedite the handling of your payment.

Thank you for your continuing support.

BCBS OF MICHIGAN BILLING / INVOICE UPDATE

DSRA Benefit Trust Logo

IMPORTANT NOTICE

August 19, 2014

BCBS OF MICHIGAN BILLING / INVOICE UPDATE
CHANGES TO THE DSRA-BENEFIT TRUST THIRD PARTY ADMINISTRATOR, EFFECTIVE September 1, 2014

Important!  BCBSM discovered after several calls from our members over the weekend that they incorrectly rated the participants in our Gold plans.  What this means is if you have the Gold plan your invoice will be overstated by the following amounts:

 

            Single    $29.08
            Couple  $69.79
            Family    $87.24

 

They have already sent a request to their rate control group to correct the rates. Members are asked to pay as billed and they will see the adjustment in their next bill.  This impacts about 334 contracts.
