GHLI enrolment ends Jan. 31


Enrolment for the government’s Group Health and Life Insurance program started on Dec. 19 and would end on Jan. 31. The enrolment would cover active and retired government employees, including their dependents under the GHLI Trust Fund.

The government’s health insurance policy program, which was renewed with Aetna International, has also changed its premium effective from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 in 2017. Changes in coverage can be done within Dec. 19, 2016 to Jan. 31, 2017.

Active government employee rates will cost $2.22 (basic), $25.70 (low), and $80.46 (high) with $4.55, $52.68, and $164.95, respectively, if it includes spouse and or dependents. The rates are $7.34, $82.22, and $257.48 if employees plus dependents only.

The rates are different for government retirees at $2.41 (basic), $27.84 (low), and $87.17 (high). Retirees including their spouse and or dependent will each have a rate of $4.93, $57.07, and $178.70; and $7.95, $89.07, and $278.94, respectively if retired employee plus dependents only.

Finance Secretary Larrisa Larson said active employees who were not previously covered may now apply, including their dependents as well as retirees who declined enrolment the last time it was opened. “New retirees are able to enroll within the specified time from their retirement date.

Employees and retirees who are currently covered and do not wish to make any changes to their policies are no longer required to re-enroll. However, those who would want to make changes need to fill out a change of enrolment form.

Those who are covered but wish to terminate their policies are also required to complete an enrolment or change request form.

Pacific Insurance Underwriters, Aetna’s resident general agent in the CNMI, is assisting the government’s GHLI open enrolment. Enrolment or change forms are also available at their offices where their staff is ready to provide assistance and answer questions.

All completed forms must be submitted on or before Jan. 31, 2017. Enrolment and changes made would take effect starting on Jan. 1, 2017.
