Open Enrollment is October 18-30.
Enroll on BCSS and follow the newly-improved prompts to update your dependents and make your 2019 elections.

 

#1 Cigna is replacing Delta Dental.

Starting January 1, 2019, Cigna will be our dental plan provider and will offer two dental plan options, the DPPO and the DHMO. The new plans also come with Cigna’s large, nationwide network of dentists, which your dentist may already participate in.

The DPPO is similar to our current dental plan but with lower premiums, and it allows you to use both an in- and out-of-network dentist (but you’ll likely pay less if you stay in-network). The DHMO offers in-network coverage and it has lower paycheck premiums than the DPPO.

If you do not actively elect a dental plan during Open Enrollment, you will be automatically defaulted in the DPPO. Learn more about your dental coverage. Check out the Patient Charge Schedule (PCS) for the DHMO to learn what amount you pay for covered services and any frequency limitations.


#2 There are changes to your rates for 2019.

Your Medical and Dental rates are changing for next year but your Vision, Long Term Disability, Voluntary Short Term Disability and Group Legal rates are all staying the same. Check out the 2019 Medical and Dental rates.


#3 The amount of money contributed to your Health Accounts is increasing.

Starting next year, all Crewmembers can receive up to $950 (individual) and $1,900 (family) in contributions from JetBlue to use for eligible healthcare expenses. How you receive these JetBlue contributions depends on your job.
