After another challenging year of change, BMC is as committed as ever to
supporting you and your family’s total well-being. We are proud to offer the same great benefits and resources you’ve come to expect. For 2022, we’re excited to provide new resources that offer targeted support at no cost to you. Now is the time to check out what’s new and review your benefits to make sure the coverage you have now fits your needs for the future.
How much you pay for coverage. Employee contributions will increase for all medical plan options in 2022 to keep pace with growing health care costs. BMC will continue to pay an average of 80% of employees’ medical premiums.
Per paycheck contributions*

*Per paycheck contributions are 24 times per year. You will pay less per pay period if you earned a medical premium discount by participating in the 2020-2021 bWell program.
You will pay between $100 and $600 less for medical coverage in 2022 if you earned bWell rewards by August 31, 2021, and chose medical premium discounts. The Enroll in Your Benefits page on MyBMC Rewards will show the discounts you have earned.

New for employees and their families enrolled in a BCBSTX medical plan
BMC continues our ongoing efforts to make it easy to use your benefits and provide better care options for the best possible cost. For 2022, we’re introducing two new services: MyEvive Health Hub and Health Advocacy Solutions (HAS). These new services will replace Healthcare Bluebook and Health Pros through Alight.
In 2022, finding your way around your health care benefits will become easier with Health Advocacy Solutions (HAS). You and your eligible family members can connect with a dedicated Health Advocate for help with health and benefits questions, big or small. Your Health Advocate takes the stress out of using your benefits by:
Helping you find in-network doctors and providers
Identifying ways to help you save money on health care expenses
Answering questions and resolving issues with your health care bills
Later this year, you’ll learn more about how a Health Advocate can help make health care easier for you and your family.
Next year, Health Advocacy Solutions (HAS) will be the phone number on the back of your medical ID card. You’ll be able to connect to your personal Health Advocate by phone, online, or through the MyEvive app.
If You’re Currently Working with a Health Pro
You can continue to work with your Health Pro during the benefits enrollment period and throughout the remainder of 2021. If you enroll in a BCBSTX medical plan for 2022, you’ll have access to a Healthcare Advocate starting January 1, 2022.
MyEvive Health Hub Available January 1, 2022
Beginning January 1, 2022, you will have access to your BMC benefits and resources all in one place through the MyEvive app.
MyEvive will give you access to your BMC benefits and resources all in one place. It will cut down on the need to remember usernames and passwords. After you register online or on the MyEvive app, you’ll receive personalized reminders about what’s most useful for you. Reminders could be to take action on your health, finances, and other benefits. It’s all about getting you to the benefits you value with the least amount of effort.
Beneficiary changes are often overlooked following divorce, remarriage, or after the death of a loved one who may be listed as one of your beneficiaries. Having accurate beneficiary information means your assets will be distributed according to your wishes. We encourage you to take a few minutes during Annual Enrollment to confirm your beneficiary designations.
To review, add or change your Life or AD&D beneficiary, go to MyBMC Rewards. To change your 401(k) beneficiary, access your account at netbenefits.com. Finally, change your Health Savings Account beneficiary at the UMB HSA website.

I want to:
Opt out of BMC’s medical plans.
Contribute to a Health Savings Account (with BCBSTX HSA medical plan only).

Health Care FSA
Dependent Care FSA
Limited Purpose FSA (with the BCBSTX HSA medical plan only)
Add or remove a dependent. Please note: You are required to verify any dependent you are adding to the medical plan with supporting documents (marriage certificate, birth certificate, etc.), or your dependent(s) will not be covered.
Increase or decrease coverage. For example, an increase from Employee + Spouse coverage to Family coverage.
Add, remove, increase, or decrease Supplemental Life Insurance coverage.
Add, remove, increase, or decrease Supplemental AD&D coverage.

Even if you are happy with your current coverage, we encourage you to review your enrollment elections each year.

Remember, you must enroll if you want to change your coverage, add or remove dependents, or contribute to a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account.
