Important 2017 Benefit Plan Information

Attend an Open Enrollment meeting to meet individually with plan sponsors and representatives from the Insurance Division. During 2017 Open Enrollment, be sure to take the time to:

  • Review the Dependents on Your Plans: In early 2017, every County employee and non-Medicare retiree with medical coverage will be issued form 1095, which will be a statement of your and your dependents' health coverage for each month of 2016. Review the County’s eligibility rules to ensure that your dependents are eligible for coverage. Learn more.
  • Review your Life Insurance Beneficiary: It is important to update your life insurance beneficiary designations as your life situation changes to ensure that your life insurance proceeds are paid to the appropriate persons. Learn more.
  • Explore your Employee Assistance Program (EAP): Baltimore County’s EAP services are administered by Cigna and are available to County employees working 26 or more hours per week, retirees under age 65, and anyone who resides in the home of a County employee or retiree under age 65.
  • If You are a Cigna Customer: You have access to Cigna Home Delivery Pharmacy, designed especially for individuals who take prescription medications on a regular basis. You can even access Cigna features on-the-go at myCigna.com or on the myCigna mobile app.
