NEW LUMENOS PLAN MEMBERS - The City will continue to offer a one-time deposit to the health savings account (HSA) for any current employee that signs up for this coverage.  This deposit will be $800 for the individual coverage and $1,200 for all other plan choices.  This will only apply to any employee that is enrolling in the Lumenos plan for the first time during open enrollment.  This deposit will be made after October 1, 2017 for all established plans.

CURRENT LUMENOS PLAN MEMBERS - The City will begin to provide an annual contribution into the HSA account for employees who have the plan as of September 30, 2017.  The contribution amount will be $30 per month for subscriber only coverage ($360 per year) and $45 per month for all other lines of coverage ($540 per year)

As always, the SALEM EMPLOYEE HEALTH & WELLNESS CLINIC located at 15 East Clay St. is open to serve your needs.   USE OF THE CLINIC IS FREE FOR ALL EMPLOYEES AND DEPENDENTS ON THE CITY’S HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN and can more than offset the cost of medical services you would pay at a doctor’s office, urgent care center, or emergency room.  I urge you to utilize this clinic to the fullest extent possible.
