Members of Fallon health plans who do not re-enroll in a new health plan during open enrollment will automatically be enrolled in a Blue Cross product.
Employees who are currently participating in the Opt-Out Program: You are required to submit a new Opt-Out form together with satisfactory proof of alternate health insurance coverage (such as a letter from your spouse/parent’s employer or a letter from your current health insurance carrier) EACH YEAR at Open Enrollment if you wish to continue to receive the Opt-Out payments. Submitting the form alone will NOT qualify you to receive Opt-Out payments.
