GIC Annual Enrollment Now Underway

Benefit Fairs Begin April 10th

APRIL 3, 2019: The state Group Insurance Commission’s annual open enrollment period began today and runs through May 1st. For the 430,000 enrollees insured by the GIC, the open enrollment period allows for changes to be made in choosing insurance providers.

Starting April 10th, the GIC will host a series of nine health fairs spread across the state. The fairs offer the opportunity for retirees and active employees to meet with insurance company and GIC officials and to ask questions about their coverage. 

“If you are a GIC enrollee and have questions regarding your coverage, then we encourage you to attend a health fair. These events also provide the opportunity to bring complaints or concerns directly to the attention of insurance company and GIC officials,” explains Mass Retirees Insurance Coordinator Cheryl Stillman. “While we are not aware of any widespread major changes in plan design or out-of-pocket costs for the coming year, there are always going to be some differences from one year to the next. I remind everyone to please take the time to review the 2019-2020 Benefit Guide. And remember, Mass Retirees members can always give me a call if you have questions.”

As we previously reported, the GIC held steady on both plan design changes and monthly premiums for FY20, which begins July 1, 2019.  Members can look to the upcoming May 2019 edition of the Voicefor detailed information on GIC premium costs and plan design.
