Benefits Transition Checklist

Medical

Deadline Action
ASAP

Check to see if your current providers are in the Aetna or UnitedHealthcare (UHC) network.

Most Salesforce employees can choose from four medical plans—all provided through either Aetna or UHC. (If you live in California or Oregon, you have a fifth option through Kaiser.) Aetna and UHC are among the nation’s largest health insurance companies, so you’ll likely find your providers in their networks.

ASAP

CVS Caremark is the pharmacy benefit provider if you enroll in any of Aetna or UHC medical plans. Check out the CVS FAQ for instructions on how to locate the cost of your medication and information about specialty medication.  

You can also call CVS Caremark at 1-844-345-2824 to get help determining if your drug requires prior authorization and, if so, how to obtain prior authorization.  

July 1, 2019 Get your dependents’ Social Security numbers ready (you’ll need to enter them in Workday to enroll your dependents in benefits).
July 1, 2019 If enrolling in the Aetna EPO plan, be sure to get your Primary Care Physician’s ID #. Follow these steps to see if your doctor is in the Aetna network (this step not required for UHC).
July 1–30, 2019

Benefits enrollment will start on July 1 and will end on July 30. Your benefits effective date will be July 1.

NOTE: Your current .org benefits will end on June 30, 2019. Be sure to complete your enrollment as soon as possible.

After you submit your benefits election in Workday If you switch medical plans from Aetna to UHC and you’re in the middle of a treatment, such as chemo or second trimester of pregnancy, and your doctor is out of network with UHC, please complete the UHC Transition of Care Form. This form is a request for UHC to cover your current care at our in-network coverage. It's important to submit the form within 30 days of completing your benefits enrollment for review and approval.  
June 30, 2019

Fertility reimbursement through Carrot: You have until June 30, 2019, to use/incur eligible expenses, and until July 30, 2019, to submit claims for reimbursement to Carrot.

If you've prepaid for services that will be rendered after June 30, you'll be eligible to submit claims for reimbursement to Carrot.

If you elect an Aetna or UHC medical plan under Salesforce, you'll have access to fertility services through Progyny. If you’re in the middle of fertility treatment and you have questions about transition of care, contact Progyny at 1-888-461-5067.

FSA (current Salesforce.org FSA enrollees only)

Deadline Action

You will have until September 15 to incur eligible healthcare and/or dependent care FSA expenses under the Salesforce.org plans. Any unused balance after September 15 will be forfeited, per the IRS use-it-or-lose-it rule.

Please note: Your WageWorks FSA debit card will be deactivated on June 30. For any expense you incur during the grace period, you'll need to submit manual claims to WageWorks for reimbursement. You can upload your claims on the participant site.

Take a look at two scenarios illustrating how the Healthcare FSA and Dependent Care FSA grace periods will work for you.

September 30, 2019 Please note claims must be submitted by September 30.

Commuter Transit & Parking Benefit

Deadline Action
July 10, 2019

On July 1, your eligibility information will be sent to WageWorks. Once this occurs, you can create your new Salesforce profile with WageWorks and complete your transit/parking elections for the next month. You can register and make your elections by accessing WageWorks via Aloha SSO.

If you have a remaining Salesforce.org WageWorks commuter benefit balance after July 31, your pre-tax credits from Salesforce.org will be transferred to your new Salesforce WageWorks account by the middle of August.
 
Please note the funds will not be available unless you place an order on the Salesforce WageWorks account.

Your current voluntary life insurance election will not transition to Salesforce. You must complete your voluntary life elections during your initial enrollment to get coverage. When you enroll, be sure to enter your beneficiaries in Workday.

Leaves of Absence
