Announcement: CMM Plan Open Enrollment Opportunity
Open Enrollment Period: May 1, 2017 to June 15, 2017
Coverage Effective Date: January 1, 2018
As you may be aware, the Catastrophe Major Medical (CMM) Plan has been closed to new participants since July 2011. On January 1, 2014, the CMM Plan became self-insured and sponsored by the NYSUT Member Benefits Trust. Then, effective September 1, 2015, the NYSUT Member Benefits Catastrophe Major Medical Insurance Trust was named as the sponsor of the CMM Plan -- replacing the Member Benefits Trust as the sponsor.
Now, the Trustees of the Member Benefits CMM Insurance Trust are pleased to announce a limited-time, open enrollment period that will allow new enrollees into the Plan. Eligible NYSUT members and their eligible family members may want to take advantage of this offer. Current CMM Plan participants may want to consider adding eligible family members that are not currently enrolled in the CMM Plan.
It is important to note the current CMM Plan will be undergoing significant benefit changes, effective January 1, 2018; that is also the effective date for coverage to begin for new enrollees and dependents. NYSUT members interested in enrolling in the Plan should visit the Member Benefits website atmemberbenefits.nysut.org for further information.
We are asking ALL local leaders to let your local's members know about this limited-time opportunity to enroll in the CMM Plan by forwarding this email to them.
