Get Ready for Open Enrollment and Tobacco Certification

Open enrollment is October 20 through October 31, 2014. Enrollment information and plan changes for 2015 will be available in early October.

Open enrollment this year is very different; don't ignore it. All employees are required to certify your tobacco use status during open enrollment, whether or not you use tobacco. In addition, Chevron's open enrollment is your annual opportunity to review your benefit options for the coming year. During open enrollment, you can decide to keep the coverage you currently have or make changes, such as switching to another medical plan option or adding a dependent to your coverage. If you miss the open enrollment deadline, you generally can't make any changes until the next enrollment period in the fall of 2016.

In early October you'll receive an open enrollment newsletter describing the benefit changes coming in 2015. Your 2015 benefit choices and monthly cost for coverage will be available on the Benefits Connection website beginning October 13. Remember, you can't make changes or certify your tobacco use status until October 20, but you can preview the 2015 costs and your available options so you can begin to think about your choices.

Certify Your Tobacco Use Status

All U.S.-payroll employees are required to certify their tobacco use status during open enrollment. If you fail to certify your tobacco use status by the deadline, you'll be charged the higher monthly rates for medical and supplemental life insurance coverage for all of 2015, whether or not you use tobacco.

New Medical Plan Choice

Starting January 1, 2015, we're introducing the Chevron High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). With the HDHP you pay a low monthly premium in exchange for a high deductible. But one feature that makes the HDHP special is that it's compatible with a health savings account. A health savings account – or HSA – is like a savings plan for your healthcare. Learn more.
