This year, premiums are increasing between 0% – 10% depending on plan enrollment and coverage tier.

What Happens If I Don’t Make Changes?
If you don’t enroll in or make changes to your benefits during Open Enrollment, your current benefit elections will remain the same for 2018. Keep in mind that even if you don’t make changes, the plans change every year. The tobacco surcharge will remain at $75 monthly in addition to the cost for medical insurance and applies to retirees and dependents age 18 and over. Retirees are encouraged to login to the new OneUSG Connect- Benefits website to view their benefits and update their beneficiaries.
