Mandatory Open Enrollment... It's that time of year again! Open Enrollment begins  Monday, October 28 and ends Sunday, November 24,  2019,  for all three campuses. Information packets with summaries, forms, rates, changes and United Way Campaignwill be sent to your home address in mid-October so you will have plenty of time to review prior to Open Enrollment beginning. Pacific also invites you to attend the upcoming benefit fairs to get your benefits questions answered straight from the vendors.

Benefit Focus Portal for your Open Enrollment elections/changes: benefits.pacific.edu - You will login using your InsidePacific credentials. This is the same site that was used for last year's Open Enrollment changes. Please wait until October 28 to begin Open Enrollment elections/changes.

Thinking about switching health plans? 
Consider the benefits of the High Deductible Health Plan with Health Savings Account
There are many reasons for switching to the HDHP. Did you know that it's the only health plan that allows you to contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA)? A Health Savings Account is a tax-advantage savings account you can use for eligible health care expenses. There are many advantages to having an HSA, such as:

  • Tax-free contributions,
  • Tax-free interest and earnings, and 
  • Tax-free withdrawals for qualified healthcare expenses.

Money in your account rolls over from year to year, so you can save for the future. Your HSA is yours to keep- you can take it with you if you leave Pacific or use it during retirement. Pacific contributes money to your HSA, which you can use to cover your eligible out-of-pocket medical expenses. 

How can you get help deciding? You can call our Benefits Resource Center (BRC) 888.336.7463. They offer decision support tools to help you decide which medical plan you should elect. They can help you estimate medical expenses specific to your family's needs, compare the plans offered and project what your annual cost under each plan will be.


If you have questions about the plan or any of your Pacific benefits, contact our Human Resources office at 209.946.2124 or email our benefits team directly at employee_benefits@pacific.edu.
