HRA Completion Deadline: Sunday, September 14, 2014!

The Division of Personnel is advising all employees and all retirees under the age of 65 (who are the primary plan member and maintain health insurance coverage under the Executive Branch’s Group Health Insurance Plan, including those employees/retirees at non-profit organizations), that the Government Employee’s Service Commission (GESC) Health Insurance Board (as the sponsor of the insurance plan’s wellness program) has established a new rule which requires those members to fully complete their annual Health Risk Assessment (HRA) on Cigna’s website, www.mycigna.com.

The HRA must be fully completed to include actual biometric numbers for glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol.  The deadline to complete the HRA for the fiscal year 2014 cycle is 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 14, 2014.  Those employees and retirees who fail to complete the HRA by the established deadline will be subjected to a biweekly insurance charge of $ 20.83 - a total of $499.92 - in fiscal year 2015 in addition to their regular health insurance premium.  (Please note this requirement is only for the active employees and retirees under 65 who are currently covered by Cigna and not their dependents.)  Click HERE to download the form to help you collect the mandatory biometric information from your health care provider.

Director  Receives Seven Seals Award

At the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), Annual Employer Award and Recognition Dinner, which took place on June 28, 2014, Director Hermon was awarded the ESGR Seven Seals Award.  The Seven Seals Award is bestowed in recognition of significant individuals or organizational achievement, initiative, or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission, to include the efforts of the more than 4,700 volunteers who carry out ESGR’s mission across the Nation on a daily basis.  Sixteen other individuals were recognized at this year’s ceremony.

Director Hermon accepted the award on behalf of the Office of the Governor and the Division of Personnel.  He stated that, “This award is a testament to the commitment we have to our employees who have volunteered to preserve our freedoms and way of life, as members of the armed forces or reserves.  I look forward to continuing to work with the ESGR, so that at next year’s annual award dinner, the Division of Personnel will be awarded the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, which is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of employees serving in the Guard and Reserve.  That’s a goal we have set and it’s one we will achieve.”

A Celebration

Each and every day, public servants face unique challenges in the workplace. While the need for vital government services continues to grow, we increasingly ask our public servants to do more with less. Public Servants perform a myriad of tasks that we may all take for granted every day. They provide essential services and benefits including disease prevention, health care, public safety and security, securing our waters, providing education care and so much more.

 

Public Service Recognition Week is an appropriate time for us to applaud their efforts and to reflect on the value of public service, and give our civil servants the praise that so many richly deserve, but so seldom receive. They deserve our support and appreciation. With sincere gratitude for their important contributions and sacrifice, for putting service before self, we take this week to say THANK YOU.
