Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to enroll in Blue View Vision if I am currently in the VSP plan?

Yes. In 2014 the vision plan, Blue View Vision, is a stand-alone plan. You will need to enroll individually into vision benefits.

Do I need to do anything now that SCU has a new group life insurance carrier?

No. It is always a good idea, however, to make sure Human Resources has the most recent information for your chosen life insurance beneficiaries. You do not have to do this during the open enrollment; you can update the beneficiary information any time.

What is new with the 2014 Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?

CBIZ will be our new FSA administrator. One new feature CBIZ will introduce is a debit card for your FSA. If you use your debit card to pay for any copays you do not need to submit FSA claims.

How have the University's insurance carriers described therapeutic abortion?

The previous definition of therapeutic abortion is being reconsidered. Anthem/Blue Cross has submitted the following language for approval from the State:

Therapeutic (medically necessary) abortions are abortions performed to save or protect the life or health of the mother, or as a result of rape or incest, or as otherwise recommended by a physician.

Human Resources is seeking clarification on the definition from Kaiser and when that is received will notify the campus community.
