All enrollment elections/changes will be made online this year at www.vbas.com. This is the
same website we used for open enrollment last year. There will be no paper enrollment forms this
year. An instruction sheet is included on how to login to www.vbas.com . If you do not have
access to a computer or wish to have assistance in the enrollment process, we will be available to
help you. We are in the process of scheduling the employee assistance days. Once the dates are
set, we will email and post notices so you can stop by if needed. Remember, no need to login if
you are not making any changes to your current health, dental or vision plan elections.
If you are not enrolled in the health coverage and are participating in the “opt-out” program, you
will need to provide a proof of insurance form from your plan administrator in order to continue
to receive the opt out credit. Fax all forms to 434-295-9930 by June 30, 2008.
If you are currently enrolled or wish to enroll in the flexible spending (medical and dependent
care) accounts you must make new elections during open enrollment. Your current FSA elections
will not continue unless you take action during the open enrollment period. Please contact
Michelle Lawson with Aflac if you have questions (760-2257) or email her at
Michellehyde@aol.com. She will be out of town the week of May 24-May 30, but will be
available at the employee assistance days and before or after this date.
**If we do not hear from you by June 30, 2008, your current plan year elections for health, dental
and vision coverage will continue for the next plan year. Changes can not be made after this date.
