2015 Health Care Flexible Spending Account Plan Change

For employees who have a balance of $500 or less in their 2014 Health Care Flexible Spending Account at the end of the year, that balance will automatically carryover into 2015. The mailed confirmation statement does not reflect this carryover amount.

Voluntary Benefits Program
Voluntary benefit enrollments are confirmed according to the coverage elected:

  • Critical Illness Insurance - MetLife will send a welcome letter and certificate of coverage.
  • Accident Insurance - Colonial Life will send a welcome information package.
  • Long Term Care - CNA will send a copy of the policy.
  • Vision or Legal Plan – a confirmation email will be sent as detailed below.

If you enrolled for Vision coverage through United Healthcare or Legal coverage through Hyatt Legal Plans, these enrollments are administered outside of JHU through our Voluntary Benefits Program and are not shown on your mailed confirmation statement. You will receive a separate confirmation email of your Vision or Legal Plan enrollment. Should you need to make corrections to your Vision or Legal enrollment, contact Mercer customer service before 12/31/2014 at 1-866-795-9362. Please be aware that Mercer customer service will be closing at 2 pm EST on 12/24/2014, will be closed all day on 12/25/2014, and will be closing at 2 pm EST on 12/31/2014.

If you have any questions concerning the above, please contact the Benefits Service Center at 410-516-2000 or
