Employees and their families can choose from an array of health plans. Each employee's needs are different. It is important that you, the GIC Coordinator, learn about the similarities and differences among the plans and where the plans are available. Recommend that the employee research his/her options and obtain the following information before making a selection.
Is the plan available where the employee lives?
Is the employee eligible to join?
Are the employee's doctors and hospitals in the plan?
Contact the plan by phone or website
