Verizon 2010 Open Enrollment

We have been informed that a letter went out to employees letting them know that the open enrollment packages will be mailed shortly. Many people have told us that they don’t bother to open the envelopes because they don’t want to change their plans. We have also been getting calles from members who were shocked that their were changes to their plan last year. They only realized that as they went to the doctors or hospitals in 2009. This year it is very important to look at your plan choices carefully. You may be entitled to a lot more benefits than you are taking advantage of. The following HMO\’s wil be offered in 2010:

808 – Capital District Physicians Health
825 – Blue Alliance NY
843 – Univera Healthcare NY
822 – HIP Health Plan of NY
814 – Empire BCBS HMO of NY (now called Anthem EPO NY/NE)
847 – Aetna INC HMO
838 – HealthNet of Connecticut
827 – Independent Health of Buffalo
817 – United Health Care Passport/Harvard Pilgrim

  1. As a Verizon retiree I have had United healthcare for several years. My 2010 enrollment has eliminated United and are giving me an option of either Anthem Blue Cross, MEP Healthcare or BCBSMA HCN (NE). I wondering if anyone might know which of these options is closest to my current UNited healthcare Provider.
