global choice plan (expatriates in U.S.)

overview

The page provides information and resources about health coverage for expatriates on assignment in the United States.

action may be required: enroll dependents

You have been automatically enrolled in the health plans listed below as part of the expatriate transfer process. However, if you have dependents, they have not been automatically enrolled in these plans. You must call the Human Resources Service Center within 31 days of your transfer date if you want to cover your dependents. If you do not notify the HR Service Center within 31 days of your transfer date, you generally must wait until the next open enrollment period (usually held in October) to enroll your dependents. Elections you make during open enrollment are effective on January 1 of the following year.

Who can I cover? U.S. health plans have special rules about who you can cover in your health plans. You can generally cover your children, your spouse and your domestic partner. Be sure to read all the rules about who you can cover under your benefits. Open each plan's summary plan description (listed below) and go to the Eligibility section to read the rules.

had a recent change in life? update benefits within 31 days

You must call the Human Resources Service Center within 31 days of a qualifying life event, such as you get married or have a baby to enroll dependents or make other changes to your coverage. If you miss the 31-day deadline, you generally must wait until the next open enrollment period (usually held each October) to update your benefits.

Choose Delta Dental PPO and/or Delta Dental Premier from the Select Network dropdown. Both networks are considered network providers and the plan will pay 100 percent of the cost for covered services, up to the annual limit. Be sure to search under both networks to see all available network dentist choices in your area.

The MHSA Plan provides confidential support for a wide range of personal issues – from everyday challenges to more serious problems. The MHSA plan covers treatment for mental health and substance abuse problems. For example, the plan may cover services for depression, stress/anxiety, parenting and family problems, relationship difficulties or problems at work, substance abuse and recovery, dealing with domestic violence, eating disorders and others. You're automatically covered if you're an eligible employee. If your dependents are enrolled in the Global Choice Plan, they're also automatically covered under this plan. Chevron pays for this coverage as part of its contributions toward your medical plan. 

healthy heart program

When you understand how healthy your heart is, you can take actions that can ultimately improve your overall wellness. That's why Chevron has partnered with WebMD to offer the Healthy Heart program. By participating in this program you can learn about how your personal choices for diet, exercise, tobacco and work/life balance may affect your heart and health. Then you can choose goals, work with a health coach, and use a variety of online tools and resources that are personalized to you. To get started, take the voluntary health questionnaire.
