  • New prescription tiers have been added.
  • New OptumRx cards will be mailed which will include a new customer service phone number. Old cards will still work, but the new phone number will provide enhanced customer service.

2017 Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment was February 6 – 17


Open Enrollment 2017

Open Enrollment was 2/6/17 - 2/17/17, and was the annual opportunity to make benefits changes effective 4/1/2017.

Important: You MUST have processed an open enrollment election if:

  • You were currently enrolled in the Base Vision plan and would like to continue vision coverage; or
  • You wanted to continue a flexible spending account. The FSA amounts  do not roll over from year to year.; or
  • You wanted to make changes to your benefits; or
  • You wanted to add or drop dependents; or
  • You wanted to add a flexible spending account

Failure to complete enrollment resulted in losing vision coverage (if previously enrolled in the Base Vision plan), and you will not have a healthcare or dependent care flexible spending account (FSA), effective 4/1/17.

Open Enrollment was through the ICUBA website 2/6/17 - 2/17/17.
