Re:     Health Insurance Rates and New Offerings

It’s that time of year again! Open Enrollment is upon us. This is your opportunity to
review, enroll or waive health insurance coverage offered to you through the College. If
you are not planning to make any changes, there is nothing you need to do! If you
wish to make changes to your coverage, please contact me directly for the necessary
forms and information at ext. 2282. I have attached additional information to this e mail
which may be helpful to you. A full listing of in-network doctors and their PCP codes
can be found by visiting Any changes to your coverage must
be done by 10/10/2007.
