On October 9th, 2013, the Staff Senate sponsored two Staff Forums, one on main campus and one on the Health Sciences campus, which specifically addressed topics of interest to the staff on each campus.
The Main Campus topics included: State Health Plan Enrollment and the ECU Master Plan parking impact. You can view the Web Presentation here.
The Health Sciences topics included: State Health Plan Enrollment, Parking Impact ofhte ECDOI and the Establishment of hte East Carolina Diabetes and Obesity Institute.
Included is VERY helpful information regarding the State Health Plan changes (so many of us are confused by the changes!). Specifically: The State Health Plan website is having issues and several in-network providers are NOT showing up. We should select another provider in the same office, with the same address.
Also, there has been a lot of concern/confusion about the designated Primary Care Provider. If you select ECU Family Medicine, you can see ANY provider that is associated with that practice and pay a reduced co-payment. If you select ECU Family Medicine and then go to a provider at Physicians East, your insurance will still cover the appointment, however you will have to pay the full co-payment amount (the $15.00 discount will not be applied).
Rapid Access – Due to the structure of the system, you will have to pay the full co-payment amount (you will not receive the $15.00 discount).
There is so much more covered, that I cannot include here. It’s definately worth taking an hour and listen to the full presentation!
When the link for the Health Sciences Web Presentation becomes available, I will update this post with the URL.
