Health, Dental Plan Rates to Rise

Boston College employees enrolled in the Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan and Delta dental plans will see increases in their premiums for the next year, the Benefits Office announced.

The office recently sent out notices about the 2003-04 medical and dental plan rates, and about the annual open enrollment period, during which employees can sign up for a health plan for the first time or switch coverage. The enrollment period ends on Thursday, April 24.

Harvard Pilgrim rates, which held steady last year, will rise by 9.95 percent. The rates for BC's primary dental plan, DeltaPremier, will increase by 4 percent and the premiums for DeltaCare, the University's managed-care dental plan option, will increase by 9.5 percent. The new rates will be reflected in May paychecks.
