UNDERSTAND YOUR COSTS, THEN COMPARE
In 2017, there will be an increase in some payroll contributions, but not all, as this chart demonstrates. There are, however, no changes to deductibles or copays for next year.
|BASIC PPO: 6.0%||ENHANCED PPO: 6.0%||KAISER: 6.0%|
|MetLife/Delta Dental: 2.4%||Cigna DHMO: 0.00%||Vision: 0.00%|
Not planning on making any changes in your coverage in 2017? Remember, you must enroll each year in the Health Care and/or Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account(s), as these do not automatically carry over. The health care limit for 2017 is $2,600 and the dependent day care limit is $5,000.
