Pick Your Plans Now
We’ve made just a few changes to some of the core benefits you enroll in or update during annual enrollment.
No Medical Cost Increases
Thanks to your participation in Intuit’s wellness programs, which help to keep you and your family healthy, we’re pleased to announce that your medical premiums and copays are not increasing for FY 2018.
You'll see decreased biometric credit amounts in FY 2018. To comply with HIPAA, GINA and ADA, which provide regulations around wellness programs, we must limit credits to $2,080 for the year. If you took the screening last year and earned all the credits, and you stay with your current plan elections, you'll have the same paycheck premium deductions that you had in FY 2017. You'll see a change to the pretax deduction on your check and to the credits, but the impact to you will be zero. If you haven’t met all of the healthy target ranges in the past, you'll now see a lower net premium because you'll receive all credits for simply participating in the screening.
New Medical ID Cards
Cigna and UnitedHealthcare members will receive new ID cards before the start of FY 2018. Your card will include contact info for Accolade, so you can connect with a health assistant who can answer many questions related to your medical plan. You’ll receive no other ID cards unless you’re enrolling in a plan for the first time.
Special Needs Therapy
In addition to applied behavior analysis (ABA) benefits, music therapy and equine therapy sessions will be covered under both the Cigna and UnitedHealthcare plans when deemed medically necessary.
Increase to Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Maximum
You can contribute up to $2,600 per plan year (an increase from $2,500) to your Health Care FSA. Remember: If you’re enrolled in the Cigna Choice Fund HSA plan, the FSA is limited to vision and dental expenses.
Helping You Prosper Throughout the Year
We’re also making changes to some of the year-round benefits that you don’t need to enroll in—and we’re launching some great new benefits as well. Unless otherwise noted, all benefits take effect August 1, 2017.
