OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR 2018 FOR ACTIVE PASTORS ENDS TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 16
 
The 2018 Annual Election for health insurance ends at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, November 16.  Annual Election is your ONLY opportunity to select pre-tax savings for 2018 through flexible spending accounts  as well as dependent care accounts. The IRS released that the health care FSA limits will be increased to $2,650 for 2018.
 
For those whose spouse and/or family already have other coverage available, consider removing them from your conference plan. This would mean a savings to you in payroll deduction for employee health insurance and premium savings across the conference.

To make your selection(s), please visit wespath.org and log in to HealthFlex/WebMD and select "HealthFlex Plan Benefits" or "Annual Election". Once you have made your selections you can print a Benefit Summary to give to your treasurer. The Benefit Summary shows the plan selected and the FSA amount (if any) selected. Your church treasurer will need this information for January payroll.
