New for 2022
BCBS will continue to be our health insurance provider. We are pleased to announce that our premiums will not increase in 2022 – this is the sixth year our employee medical rates have not increased. Very minimal changes are being made to our plans, which are being made across all BCBS’s book of business. View the changes on the HR Open Enrollment page on MyMeredith. 

Other Benefits
There are no changes to our dental, vision, life insurance, LTD, voluntary accident, and critical illness benefits. Same rates, same great coverage!

Don’t forget…Annual Re-enrollments Required
Please keep in mind that some benefits must be elected each year.  You need to complete the annual form to continue to participate in:

  • A Health Savings Account (HSA medical spending account);
  • A Flexible Spending Account (FLEX medical spending account and/or FLEX childcare reimbursement account); or
  • The Health Insurance Opt-Out  (please provide a copy of proof of current alternative health insurance coverage).
