All full-time employees are eligible to participate in one of the three plans offered by the Diocese of Worcester. The three options are the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Focus Network Value HMO, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Value HMO 15, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Best Buy HMO 1000.
Application must be made within thirty (30) days of hiring. All other applications can be considered only during open enrollment periods (begins May 1 for 2016).
The Diocese's renewal date for its three health insurance plans for lay and Religious employees is June 1. During the month preceding the renewal an open enrollment period exists, when every participant has the opportunity to change plans without any penalties or waiting periods. Eligible employees, who have not been participating, are also entitled to enroll during open enrollment.
If you are currently enrolled in a plan with the Diocese of Worcester and are not changing from that plan, you do not have to do anything.
