2016 Group Insurance Annual Enrollment/Transfer Period

The annual enrollment/transfer period for 2016 benefits is September 15 through October 15, 2015.  The enrollment period ends at 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time.  The options you choose during the enrollment period are effective January 1-December 31, 2016, unless you have a qualifying event or family status change during the year. Subject to eligibility, during this time you can:


  • Add, cancel, or transfer health insurance option and/or carrier
  • Add, cancel, or transfer dental options
  • Add, cancel, or transfer vision options
  • Increase optional term or universal life coverage
  • Enroll in or decrease optional term life coverage
  • Enroll in optional accident coverage


If you want to make changes, you must do so online using the State of Tennessee's Edison Employee Self Service module.  Paper forms are not accepted.  Optional term changes must be completed on the Minnesota Life website (


If you are happy with your current benefit selections, no action is required to remain enrolled in coverage.  However, you need to be sure your health care providers are either in the CIGNA LocalPlus Network or the BlueCross/Blue Shield S Network.  Tennova Hospitals and affiliated doctors are only in network for BlueCross/BlueShield members. 


If you are currently enrolled and choose to stay in the Partnership PPO or enroll in the new Wellness CDHP, you (and your covered spouse) are automatically agreeing to fulfill the 2016 Partnership Promise.
