When you are hired into a benefit-eligible position, benefits are effective on your first day. You have 31 days from that date to enroll for coverage. The coverage you select is then effective back to your date of hire.

There used to be EOB grids to easily examine the differences between plans. Where can I find that document? I am only finding the summary document and the 148+ plan document. Thank you for your help.

Can you process changes to enrollment from home?

You would need to be on a Mayo Clinic computer or a computer that is connected to our network through VPN. Otherwise you could call HR Connect to make changes by phone. 1-888-266-0440

All three plan options offer 80/20 coverage in-network. The primary difference between the plan options are deductible and out of pocket maximum. Those differences are detailed in the guide linked above.

Thanks Robert. I was hoping to more easily compare a Mayo plan with a non-Mayo plan.
