Flexible Benefits Administrators, Inc. Mailing Correction
In late December 2014, Flexible Benefits Administrators, Inc. (FBA) mailed out a premium rate change letter for the 2015 plan year. In that letter FBA listed "Cigna Dental and Vision" as the vendor for dental and vision coverage; this is an error, Cigna is the County's provider for medical (active employees and all retirees) and prescription drug coverage for Medicare eligible retirees only, Delta Dental of VA continues to administer dental coverage for active employees and all retirees. For active employees and non-Medicare retirees under the age of 65 years old Davis Vision administers vision coverage and Express-Scripts is the Pharmacy Benefit Manager. If you have further questions about this notice, please contact the Benefits Help Line at 703-777-0517, email or click here for the Health Plan vendor contact list.
