AUTO INSURANCE: Blue Cross Blue Shield is the primary payor for health services if you are in an auto accident.  If in the past you added the rider to your auto policy which made auto the primary payor, you can cancel this rider.  This will likely reduce your auto insurance rates.  If your insurance carrier requests a letter verifying this change contact GPPS benefits. 

HEALTH ENROLLMENT LAW CHANGE: Due to a change in the law (effective 9-1-14):   Employee + one child is no longer considered family coverage.  As of this date Employee + Child will now be at the 2-Person rate.  Employee + more than one child is charged the family rate.  Employee + Spouse (no children) is charged the 2-Person rate + $600 Spousal Surcharge.  A spouse that has primary insurance through their own employer can be added to GP Insurance as secondary coverage (Coordination of Benefits) and is NOT charged the $600 spousal surcharge.
