Case Western Reserve University Postdoctoral Benefits Program

Garnett-Powers & Associates is pleased to offer the Case Western Reserve University Postdoctoral Benefits Program (Case-PBP). This comprehensive program offers you four benefit plans to provide excellent health coverage for you and your family.

The Case-PBP offers the following plans for 2014:

  • Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield Blue Access PPO Plan (the choice of a high or low option plan)
  • Dental: MetLife PPO
  • Vision: EyeMed Vision
  • Life and AD&D: MetLife

New Medical Plans Available for Plan Year 2015!
Enrollment Begins during the Open Enrollment Period of November 17th – December 1st, 2014

Beginning January 1st, 2015, the following new medical plans will be effective:

  • HealthSpan Select Plus HMO
  • HealthSpan Access PPO

The dental, vision and life insurance plans will remain the same for 2015.

During the Open Enrollment period, you will need to make a selection of either of the new plans. Please note: In order to select the HMO, you will need to reside in the HMO service area. Please click on the Open Enrollment link to view a partial list of cities within the accepted area. If you reside in a city not listed, please contact our office to learn if your city qualifies for the HMO service area. If you reside out-of-state, you will need to select the PPO plan. The Anthem plans will no longer be offered and will be discontinued as of December 31st, 2014. The new HealthSpan plans will be in effect January 1st, 2015.

If you previously waived coverage in the Case PBP, for yourself and/or your eligible family members, you may now enroll by choosing either of the new HealthSpan medical plans above, coupled with the dental, vision and life insurance.

The MetLife dental plan rates are increasing by a nominal 2% for 2015. There are no changes to the vision or life insurance rates. You may view the new rates and contributions by clicking on 2015 Monthly Rates/Contributions. For instructions on how to make your new medical plan enrollment for Plan Year 2015, and to view information pertinent to the open enrollment process, please click on Open Enrollment.
