AT&T CORE Annual Enrollment for 2021 Benefits
The Annual Enrollment period for AT&T Employees begins on Monday, October 12th at 7 a.m. and will continue through Friday, November 13th at 7 p.m. Enrollment can be completed online (att.com/benefitscenter), by phone (1-877-722-0020) or from your mobile device.
Enrollment content and information will be available for review Monday, October 5th on the AT&T Benefits website, giving you an additional week to research your options before making elections.
Your benefit options for 2021 will be much like 2020 with a few changes.
Monthly contributions, Deductibles, and Annual Out-of-Pocket Maximums are changing.
Remember that the PPO (Preferred Provider Organization), ONA (Out-of-Network Area), and HCN (Health Care Network) bargained plans are available as either Option 1 or Option 2.
Option 1 and Option 2 are the same AT&T Midwest Medical Program with different cost sharing structures. That means that you will get the same services covered but your Monthly Contributions, Deductibles, Out-of-Pocket Maximums, and Coinsurance amounts will be different for each option.
Option 2 is a high deductible health plan (HDHP) and those who enroll in Option 2 can contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA). Keep in mind that if you contribute to a HSA and a FSA, your FSA will be limited to Dental and Vision expenses. For more details on HSAs and FSAs review the Annual Enrollment content online. The maximum annual contributions for HSAs and FSAs are increasing for the 2021 plan year.
Deductibles count toward your Out-of-Pocket Maximum. With Option 2 the Deductible and Annual Out-of-Pocket Maximums are integrated with the prescription drug plan and CarePlus.
The Contribution Holiday for CarePlus will continue through 2021. The company will notify employees in advance when it ends and employees will have the opportunity to continue with CarePlus coverage or opt out.
Medical plans available to you can change based on your zip code, so check and confirm that the plan you are currently enrolled in is still available for 2021. If your current plan is not offered in 2021, you will automatically be enrolled in the lowest-cost self-insured option available to you unless you actively enroll.
For members who reside in Wisconsin the Blue Cross Blue Shield provider network is changing from the BCBS National PPO Network to the BCBS Select Network. Confirm that your providers, including doctors and facilities are in the new network before receiving treatment.
It is important that you review your current coverage and available options. Don’t assume that you will default to your current coverage if you make no changes. Your current plan may not be an available option! You can review your available options and Health Plan Comparison Charts online at att.com/benefitscenter.
Enrollment can be completed online (att.com/benefitscenter), by phone (1-877-722-0020) or from your mobile device. Keep a copy of your Enrollment Confirmation for your records.
Taking a moment to review your options and confirm your elections now can prevent unnecessary grief later.
