    Posted: 10/22/14 5:08 PM

    Third in a series

     Xavier University’s 2015 medical plan designs and rates have been finalized and are available on the 2015 Open Enrollment site. While employers regionally and nationally report average medical plan cost increases of 8-10 percent, Xavier’s rate increase is an average of 7.5%.

    We will again offer two options—National Point of Service (NPOS) and High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)—with minimal plan design changes. Moreover, additional services, screenings and specialized prescription drugs will be covered by the plans as preventive. For detailed 2015 medical rates and plan changes, click here.

    To learn more about all benefit plan changes for 2015, we encourage employees to attend a benefit information session beginning tomorrow, Thursday, October 23. Ten information sessions are scheduled through November 6. Click here to view session dates, times and locations and register to attend.

    A comprehensive summary of 2015 benefits can be downloaded (see below) and is available on the 2015 Open Enrollment site.

  • 2015 Dental & Vision Benefits - 9 hours ago | 62 views

    Posted: 10/22/14 12:47 PM

    Second in a series offered by the Office of Human Resources (OHR)

    Insurance companies analyze complex factors in calculating premiums. Among the considerations are plan members’ utilization patterns and customary fees charged by area providers.

    Such trends affect rate changes employees will notice in 2015 dental and vision (supplemental) rates.

    A 3% discount and two-year rate guarantee for dental premiums is a reason to smile! Dental Care Plus (DCP) and its local provider network has committed to provide the same coverage at lower cost to Xavier employees through December 31, 2016. A slight rate increase with no change in plan design will be applied to the supplemental vision in 2015. Humana, which administers this benefit, also agreed to a two-year rate guarantee. (Voluntary supplemental vision extends coverage beyond routine eye exams included in medical plans and includes discounts on prescription lenses.)

    Detailed 2015 plan summaries and rates are available here.
