GA-23111 Open Enrollment Period for Railroad Employees
and/or their Dependents
During the months of November and December 2010, UnitedHealthcare will hold an open enrollment under GA-23111. During this open enrollment, any individual eligible for coverage under one of the GA-23111 Plans can enroll and will be accepted for coverage without any medical underwriting or requirement of good health. There are no limitations for pre-existing conditions. Enrollment in November and December 2010 will be for coverage effective January 1, 2011. Only those applicants, who mail their completed enrollment forms in November or December 2010, will be considered for open enrollment. The next opportunity to enroll during an open enrollment period will be in November/December 2012, consistent with the Plan’s two-year open enrollment cycle.
This open enrollment is being held:
- For any individuals who were covered under any railroad health plan and were represented by a Railway Labor Union.
- For any individuals who are members in accordance with the constitution or by-laws of one of the participating railway labor organizations, when coverage under the employer group health plan which applies to them ends.
If you or someone you know meet the GA-23111 eligibility provisions, open enrollment provides an opportunity for them to become covered. You may also enroll your spouse or eligible children if they are not currently covered. In addition, enrollment under Plan F is available for your parent or parent-in-law.
