2019 Plan Update from PEIP:
We are very pleased that this renewal continues the streak of "better than industry average" for 10th straight year, the average increase for January 1, 2019 will be 2.5%. (groups being slotted for the first time could be slightly above or below that figure). There are no significant plan changes on any of the three plans for 2019. The 2019 clinic directory is being updated and will be available October 15th on our website at www.innovomn.com/plan_information.html.
It is important to make sure you review your clinic choice for cost level changes, if you are only changing primary care clinics, you can call the number on your id card to make the clinic change. Innovo cannot make clinic only changes. You will find the 2019 SBCs for PEIP, and other plan materials on our website."
Dental, life, vision accidental death & dismemberment, and long-term disability insurance, as well as reimbursement accounts, continue to be administered through Corporate Health Systems for all employees. See resources on the left for those other insurance products. For status changes at any time of the year, including medical insurance for EM/E, please contact Cara Hendrickson.
Employee Assistance Program: PEIP does not offer an EAP, but an EAP can be accessed through our life insurance carrier.

Download this Excel spreadsheet to sort for your Primary Care Clinic cost level and clinic number.Primary Care Clinics have been placed into one of four cost levels, depending on the care system in which the provider participates and that care system’s total cost of delivering health care. The amount of cost sharing that is paid when using health care services varies depending upon the cost level of the Health Plan/Network that you choose. Each family member must select a primary care clinic (PCC). Family members may elect different PCC’s – even in a different cost level, but must enroll with the same carrier.New for 2019: Please be sure to check your clinic to see if the cost level has changed. If you would like to change your primary care clinic, contact your carrier using the phone number on your id card.
