For most USC employees, the information throughout this open enrollment site applies – but there are a few exceptions.
Three employee groups have entirely different benefits and open enrollment information, and due to those differing plans they do not qualify for the various wellness incentives.
- Employees represented by Local 11 only use USC open enrollment to enroll in Flexible Spending Accounts, enroll/change supplemental disability, or enroll/change Hyatt Legal plan.
- Employees at Verdugo Hills Hospital – including those represented by CNA – participate in open enrollment but their benefits differ. See the Verdugo Hills employee page or the CNA Verdugo Hills page.
- Employees at Las Vegas Healthcare Center participate in open enrollment but their benefits differ. See the Las Vegas Healthcare Center page.
For all other benefits-eligible employees, the primary difference between various groups revolves around the choice of HMOs – whether they can select the Kaiser HMO, the Anthem Blue Cross MyChoice HMO, or both.
|Employees represented by:
||May choose ONLY Anthem Blue Cross MyChoice HMO – not Kaiser|
|All other benefits-eligible employees not part of any other groups mentioned on this page||May choose ONLY Kaiser HMO – not Anthem Blue Cross MyChoice HMO|
Note that everyone in the above chart also may choose a third HMO option, a different Anthem HMO simply known as Anthem HMO. And of course, they also may select the USC EPO or PPO.
