SIG v2Health insurance renewal information should be arriving shortly for the 2015-2016 policy year (April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016). After reviewing your renewal rates, please consider the following three options:

1.     If you want to renew the 2015-2016 health insurance programs at the rates and plan design quoted:

No action is required on your part; your plan will automatically renew if no changes are being made. The billing administrator (SBSB, HSA/MBA/NBT) will bill you the new amount for April 1, 2015.

If you elect this option please review your plan design’s most recent Summary of Benefits. In order to be compliant with the ACA plans designs have been modified and some plans have been eliminated. If your current plan has been eliminated you will automatically be enrolled into a similar plan design with the same carrier.

 2.     If you would like to make changes within your current health insurance carrier (for exchange plan designs):

    • -Your account must be paid up-to-date; AND
    • -You must contact Spring at 1-800-821-6033 to confirm the change in price and benefits, and to complete the required forms.

 3.     If you would like to consider alternatives to your current carrier:

Spring can provide alternatives for your review.  Contact us toll-free at 800-821-6033 to initiate the process.

When contacting Spring, please have the following information readily available:
