Confirmation statements for 2024 benefits were mailed to all full-time benefits-eligible faculty, staff, and LiUNA bargaining unit members in early December. Carefully review your statement to ensure that the elections shown are those that you intended for next year. If you are covering a child who is currently age 26, that coverage will end on Dec. 31, 2023; this is reflected on the confirmation statement.
If the elections shown on your benefits confirmation statement are incorrect, you must email the Benefits Services Center at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Dec. 31, 2023.
- Indicate 2024 Annual Enrollment Correction in the subject line.
- Include full details of the correction you are requesting, including dependent information.
- You will receive an email response acknowledging receipt of your request.
If you have already reached out to the Benefits Service Center to request a change, this may not be reflected on your statement.
If you need to make a correction to your beneficiary, you can make this change online, 24/7, at hr.jhu.edu/benefits-worklife. Choose Life Events on the myChoices Health & Life Enrollment tab.
CareFirst members. Employees enrolled in a CareFirst plan will receive a new medical ID card by the middle of December. The card will also contain your new pharmacy ID number. Make sure to update this information with all your providers, effective Jan. 1, 2024.
Capital Rx. Watch your mail for Capital Rx letters containing details on Optum home delivery, specialty medications, etc.
Quantum Health. Quantum Health's phone line opened Dec. 1. If you have a scheduled surgery or treatment in January, you should call Quantum Health to discuss it. You can contact its care coordinators at 844-460-2801, 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Flexible spending accounts
The IRS limit for 2024 health care and limited purpose flexible spending accounts, or FSAs, has increased to $3,200 from this year's $3,050. If you would like to adjust your 2024 election based on these new limits, you must do so by Dec. 31.
To make a change, log into the enrollment webpage by going to the myChoices Health & Life Enrollment tab on the Benefits & Worklife website. Select the Start a Qualifying Life Event option in the My Benefits section at the bottom of the screen, and then, under Other Options, choose the Increase my 2024 HFSA Contribution option.
Any balance between $30 and $610 remaining in your 2023 health care FSA or limited purpose FSA will carry over into 2024. You will be able to confirm this carryover after the 2023 claims filing deadline of April 30, 2024, by viewing your account at wexinc.com. The mailed confirmation does not reflect this carryover amount.
Be sure to check your account for any outstanding FSA debit card substantiation/documentation requests. If these are not submitted by mid-December, your FSA debit card will become inactive in January.
Life insurance evidence of insurability
Your confirmation statement reflects the amount of life insurance you can elect without evidence of insurability, or EOI. It may differ from the election that you made during Annual Enrollment. If you had existing supplemental life insurance coverage and elected to move up one level of coverage, EOI is not required. If you moved up more than one level of coverage, you will need to complete EOI. If you elected supplemental life insurance for the first time (and are not a new hire), EOI is required for any amount you chose. Securian Financial will reach out to you by email to start the EOI process.
Health savings accounts
If you previously elected the high-deductible health plan and chose to open a health savings account, or HSA, you must elect a new contribution amount for 2024; otherwise, your contribution will be automatically set to $0. In 2024, you can contribute up to $4,150 per individual and up to $8,300 per family. You can change your contribution amount at any time during the year.
