Rates for health care plans (medical and dental) for active clergy and lay employees serving in the Diocese of Fond du Lac have been announced. Episcopal Health Plans are offered through the Episcopal Church Medical Trust (part of the Church Pension Group) and sponsored by the diocese.
Those eligible are clergy, lay employees scheduled to work at least 20 hours per week, and dependents. Two plan types are offered, the PPO (Preferred Provider Option) and the CDHP (Consumer Driven Health Plan) which is partnered with an HSA (Health Savings Account). A webinar will be offered to review the CDHP/HSA plan on November 6 at 6:30 p.m. (visit diofdl.org/oe for details). Premium rates increase 5-7% over 2017, but are below the expected national increase of 8.8%.
Those already enrolled in an Episcopal Health Plan will be receiving open enrollment information from CPG soon. The Open Enrollment Period will be from November 8 through November 22. The previous 75/50 PPO will no longer be offered, with the PPO80 being comparable.
