REVIEW YOUR 2019 BENEFIT ELECTIONS

Now that the annual enrollment period for 2019 has been closed, you can visit www.marquette.bswift.com to review your 2019 benefit elections.

Be sure to change the benefits effective date to 1/1/19.

If you elected one of the medical plans, you will be receiving new ID cards the end of December. If you enrolled in the HSA or FSA, you will receive your welcome packet from Direct Path, our new administrator, the end of December also.

UPLOADING SPOUSE and/or DEPENDENT CERTIFICATE DOCUMENTS ONTO THE ONLIN ENROLLMENT TOOL

Please visit www.marquette.bswift.com and follow the below instructions to upload qualifying dependent documents.

Human Resources began the document verification process. All uploaded documents will be addressed and dependents “un-pended”. Employees will be contacted by HR if there are any issues surrounding their uploaded document(s). Employees have until 12/31/18 to upload the required documents.

After you upload your information and want to permanently delete the documents from your desk top, please see this link for instructions.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING UPLOADING MARRIAGE / BIRTH CERTIFICATES

After much consideration, Human Resources has decided to offer a second option for uploading required information into the DirectPath online enrollment tool.

As communicated in previous emails, written material and verbally, an employee who is covering a dependent child or a spouse on either their medical and/or dental and/vision insurance will be required to upload a birth certificate or adoption paperwork for the child or a marriage certificate for a spouse for verification of eligibility.

Human Resources, in conjunction with the Office of General Counsel, has created a second option: an HR signed and witnessed affidavit. There will be a specific affidavit for both a birth certificate/adoption paperwork as well as a marriage certificate. If you elect this option, you will be responsible for filling out the required information prior to coming into Human Resources for official verification. Upon verification, it is the employee’s responsibility to upload the completed affidavit(s) to the DirectPath system by Dec. 31, 2018.

This alternate verification process can only be completed in person and on the dates and times listed below

Dates and times authorized HR personnel will be available:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am – 4pm starting on November 5th through December 20, 2018 in Straz Tower Room 185.

If enrolled in a Health Care FSA or Dependent Care FSA for 2019, you will receive a welcome packet and account activation information from Discovery Benefits regarding your FSA 2019 benefits.

Health Savings Accounts (HSA): EBC and Avidia Bank will no longer administer Marquette's HSA benefits as of 1/1/19. You have the opportunity to roll your HSA dollars from Avidia to Discovery Benefits' banking partner, Healhtcare Bank, or you can keep your account with Avidia. Please note that if you maintain your current HSA account with Avidia, you will be subject to account holder fees assessed by Avidia. Both the Marquette and individual contributions taken from your payroll checks will go to a NEW HSA account administered by Discovery Benefits. If you enrolled in the HSA, you received an email from Discovery Benefits with a transfer form and link to upload the form. This was sent the end of November. Please contact Discovery Benefits if you did not receive the email or have questions on regarding the form.
