Medical, Dental and Vision
  February 13, 2015 - Prior to 2014, the Gas Company offered medical, dental, and vision benefits to full-time employees following the completion of their initial six-months of employment and for part-time employees, medical, dental, and vision benefit plans were offered after the employee completed one year of continuous service. 
  In 2014, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) began requiring large companies to offer medical benefits to all employees with no longer than a 90-day waiting period.  To comply with this provision of the PPACA, in January 2014 the Company changed the requirements for enrollment in its medical plans.  
  To ensure compliance with the PPACA, Company employees are eligible to enroll in the medical plan associated with their full-time or part-time employment status beginning on the first of the month following 60 days from their date of hire. 
  For example:  If you are hired and start work on February 16, 2015, you will be eligible for Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits on May 1, 2015.  Prior to this date, you will get a large package in the mail at home with a cover letter explaining how to enroll and the deadline to enroll, a Benefit Guide, and Summary Plan Description booklets for each benefit for which you are eligible.  If you don’t get the package by your eligibility date you should call My Info at 877-696-4999.  Call Center Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST.  You have 31 days from your eligibility date to enroll, so for our example you would have until May 31, 2015.
  If you are hired as a Part Time employee and are transferred to Full Time, you will not have to wait for benefit eligibility if you already fulfilled your waiting period obligation as a Part Time employee.  You will receive a letter advising you of a change to your benefits.  Full time employees have additional choices in medical, dental, and vision plans so you would have the option to pick new plans.  If you make an election, the new plans you choose will begin on the first of the following month following your job move.
  For more information please contact My Info at the number above.
