Who is eligible?

What do I need to consider for Open Enrollment?

When choosing your insurance coverage, review the benefit options available to you and make the elections that are right for you and your family.

  • How much do you want to contribute to the health care account that works with your medical plan?
  • Do you need dental or vision coverage?
  • Do you need to cover eligible family members under your insurance benefits?
  • Do you want to purchase supplemental life or disability insurance?
  • Do you have upcoming life events to consider when selecting benefits, such as the birth of a new baby, a marriage, or a child going to college?
  • Who should be your beneficiary for life insurance and your Health Savings Account (HSA), if applicable?

If you're enrolling a domestic partner...

IRS and some state regulations require that you pay your cost for domestic partner coverage with after-tax dollars. The portion of the cost that the company pays is also subject to income and Social Security taxes. This amount is referred to as imputed income. Please consult your tax advisor for details.

When does coverage begin for new hires?

Coverage begins the first of the month following 30 days after your date of hire. You must be actively at work for your coverage to become effective.

Are you a new hire?

When you first become eligible for our benefit programs, you must either enroll or waive coverage for Voluntary Life Insurance. If you do not enroll yourself and your dependents for coverage the first time you are eligible, and you wish to enroll during a subsequent enrollment period, you will have to provide proof of good health by filling out an Evidence of Insurability (EOI) form, which may include taking a physical examination, and you may be declined coverage. Future exams will be at your cost.

What comes out of my pay?

Annual Premium

The annual cost to purchase medical coverage is spread across the year, so you pay a portion of it in each pay period on a pretax basis. Medical premiums are based on the plan you choose and the number of people you cover.

What will I pay after I meet my deductible?


After you meet the annual deductible, generally, you’ll continue to pay the stated coinsurance percentage for in-network covered medical services until you meet the out-of-pocket maximum. The plan pays the rest.

What will I pay when my medical coverage starts?

Annual Deductible

You won’t pay for in-network preventive care defined by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, such as your annual checkup. Generally, for all other covered care, you’ll pay the amount of your annual deductible before the plan starts to pay.

How much will I pay out of my own pocket?

Out-of-pocket Maximum

This is the most you would pay for covered medical services in a calendar year. Once you meet it, the plan pays the full cost of additional covered care.

Will my doctor be in-network?

Provider Network

You can confirm whether your doctor is in-network by going to the carrier website.

What is Henriksen Butler contributing?

Company Contribution

Henriksen Butler pays a portion of your monthly premium to limit your monthly cost and provide you with affordable coverage options.

During your benefits enrollment period, you can add an eligible dependent to your coverage.

Important Reminder

Once you’re enrolled, if you get married, have/adopt a baby, get a divorce, or another qualified life event occurs, you must notify HR within 30 days of the date of the change. For more information about who’s eligible to be on your plans, see our employee benefit guide.
