Who is eligible?
J P Systems offers medical insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance and life insurance for full time permanent employees who consistently work at least 30 hours a week.
When am I eligible to sign up for insurance benefits?
You are eligible the first of the month following the first full calendar month of employment. For example, if you start work on January 2nd, you are eligible March 1st. But if you start work on January 1st, you are eligible on February 1st. If you start work on February 11th, you are eligible on April 1st as March counts as the first full month of employment. If you start on February 1st, you are eligible on March 1st.
How do I sign up?
You will receive the insurance application from your HR representative.
Am I required to sign up for insurance?
No, you are not required to sign up for insurance. You are required to accept or decline health insurance coverage in writing. If you already have coverage, you can simply decline coverage on the health insurance application. When you receive your insurance card by mail, you will login to myuhc.com and register for the portal.
How do I search for healthcare providers?
Go to the United Healthcare Provider Search.
Who is covered under the insurance policy?
Full time permanent employees are paid for as an employee benefit. J P Systems covers 95% of your premium for its employees who are enrolled in the group health and dental insurance plans. Dependents may be added for an additional cost to the employee. Please contact HR for a custom quote for your dependents.
What about dependents? Can they be covered too?
Any legal dependents may be included on your policy. However, you will incur the cost through a payroll deduction. A no obligation quote for your dependents will be sent to you if requested. After evaluating the quote, you can decide if and who you would like to add to your policy.
What can I expect once I sign up?
Within about two weeks of your eligibility, your health insurance card(s) will come in the mail with a welcome letter explaining how to register yourself on the myuhc.com website.
Is a summary of benefits available for the insurance plans?
Yes, please contact HR for a summary of benefits for the plans.
When is open enrollment?
Open enrollment happens once a year in August before our annual plan renews each year on October 1st. You are allowed to change your insurance coverage options during this open enrollment period. Contact the HR Dept. for information on open enrollment.
