The Hawai'i Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund (EUTF) has announced its open enrollment period for January 3, 2011 through January 24, 2011. This is an opportunity for employees to make changes to their health benefit plans, if desired. 
Plan changes during the open enrollment will be effective March 1, 2011.

The EUTF Open Enrollment Health Benefits memo, Q & A, and informational sessions, may be viewed at the EUTF website at:
The EUTF Trustees have approved new health plan premium rates, effective March 1, 2011 through June 30, 2011.  The March 1, 2011 premium rates may be viewed at the EUTF website:
The 2010 Reference Guide will not be updated this year since the insurance carriers and benefits remain the same (only the premiums have changed).  You may view the EUTF Reference Guide Plan Year 2010 at the EUTF website:

, the informational sessions/locations, and the EC-1 form revised Oct 2009)
Employees desiring to make changes to their health benefit plans must complete the EC-1 Enrollment Form and submit to the Personnel by January 24, 2011, for processing and routing to the EUTF. 
Employees shall complete the EC-1 form at:
Section 2 – leave blank; only applicable for enrollments or changes made in the middle of a plan year due to a qualifying event.

Section 3 – any boxes left blank mean you have not selected the options, thereby waiving coverage.

Section 4 – when making health plan changes, complete Section 4 if enrolling dependents.  If no dependents are listed, EUTF will assume you do not wish to cover any dependents.

Due to minimal changes to plan choices, the EUTF has not requested administrative time-off from the Governor for employees to attend the informational sessions.  State employees are required to take vacation leave to attend the open enrollment informational sessions. 

Should you have any questions, please call me at ext. 372. 

Thank you,
