    • The purpose of this blog is to discuss Intel Benefits. Let’s keep it real and make this a place to interact – all constructive comments are welcome. At the same time, this can’t become a Q&A forum: please use Ask ES for detailed questions. Finally, a message from the lawyers: "The information in this blog is not intended to take the place of or change the official plan documents in any way. In the event of a discrepancy between the information in this blog and official plan documents, the plan documents will prevail." Just so you know.

    • Health benefits and old dogs

    • First of all, let me just say I’m thankful to have health insurance. And choices. Without those two things my life would be very different. That doesn’t mean the healthcare system in the U.S. doesn’t still drive me nuts. Options are nice, but trying to make sense of all the complicated rules is like trying to match up all the colors on a Rubik’s cube: almost impossible, especially if you’re like me – someone with no time or patience to figure it all out.

    • Which brings me to Annual Enrollment: it’s that time of year again when my brain turns to mush when faced with having to decide what to do with my health benefits for the next year. Over the last couple of years we’ve been introduced to health plans that sound like they’ve been created by bankers: set-up a pre-tax savings account… manage receipts…pay premiums….meet deductibles…etc. Will I need my accountant to talk to the pharmacist? Do I have to stand in line at the DMV to schedule a doctor’s appointment? I’m only joking with the last two questions (I know the DMV is automated now).

    • Call me an old dog. I’ve been with the same health plan since I started with Intel 17 years ago. The “auto-pilot” system works for me. Except lately I’ve been wondering if I could actually save money with one of those other kind of health plans. Someone recently told me he’s been with one of the consumer-driven health plans for over three years, and since that time he’s only paid around $140 total in medical costs (not including premiums)!  I know everyone’s situations are unique – but if what he says is true it would be a huge difference for me (I pay that much for prescriptions alone in just 6 months). I think I finally realize I need to make an effort and spend time investigating other health plan options (which I’ve never really done in the past, obviously). In the meantime, if you have any experiences you can share or suggestions on what’s worked well for you (or not) – I’d love to hear from you. And the sooner the better -- Annual Enrollment starts Oct. 29.
