Salt Lake County plans are subject to regulations in section 125 of the IRS code.. Because of this, you need an IRS Qualifying Event to make changes to your plan outside Open Enrollment.
You have 31 days (includes the date of the event) to make the change in PeopleSoft and send your information to the Benefits Team. Documents should be sent to the benefits team at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 385-468-0573. The original is not necessary.
After the change has been approved, the Benefits Team will open the event in PeopleSoft. You then log into PeopleSoftto make the change online. Please review these instructions.
Changes to your Savings Plan Options must be made through the Utah Retirement Systems (URS) website.
Once the change is made through URS, the county receives information and will make changes to your paycheck, which may take up to three weeks.
Remember to review your savings elections to maximize your tax savings and have what you need in retirement.
Changes to your life insurance or life insurance beneficiary should be made directly through PEHP at www.pehp.org. Unlike other employee benefits, life insurance changes can be made anytime during the year.
It may take up to three weeks for you to see the premium or coverage change on your paycheck, and PEHP keeps your beneficiary information on file.
When you get married or divorced, have children, or when your children get married or turn age 26, it is your responsibility to update the coverage and/or beneficiaries.
The quickest and easiest way to resolve issues is to contact the benefit administrator directly. If you still have questions or issues, please get in touch with the Benefits Team.

Flex Spending programs are regulated by the IRS, and the plan is administered according to IRS regulations in section 125 of the tax code (Can't sleep? Click here). Please remember, using your FSA Benefits card provides access to your funds, and does not mean your claim was qualified or has been processed. In many cases, you will be asked to provide proof of your expense to ASI Flex. Here are a few pointers to make using the card easier:
1. Make sure your provider charges the correct amount.ASI Flex cannot auto-approve an amount that isn't consistent with county benefit plan. For example, if you have a Dr. visit and don't pay your copay, but pay two copay's at your next visit, you'll need to send in an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) or itemized bill to prove that charge.
2. You must always send in an EOB or itemized bill for dental and some other types of claims. Send the information ASI Flex needs. Sometimes the charges are on one side of the bill and the procedure on another. You need to show:
3. Submitting an EOB with your claim form is the easiest way to substantiate your charges. You can find EOB's by logging into your account through
4. If ASI Flex notifies you that you need to send in proof for a charge, do so immediately. You can fax, email or mail a copy of your EOB or itemized bill. You have up to 42 days to provide documentation, but after that your card may be suspended until documentation is received. Visit ASIFLEX for details.
5. If you leave the County (retirement or termination), access to your Flex terminates on your last day at the County. You have 30 days to submit receipts for charges prior to your termination date and don't have access to your funds unless you elect COBRA coverage. If your receipt isn't received within 30 days, funds are ineligible for reimbursement.
6. You can submit an annual claim form for all of your daycare expenses by completing and submitting this form to ASIFlex.
7. The Rollover provision allows you to carry over your rollover balance for 12 months. If you have unused rollover funds on December 31, they will be forfeited on January 1. ASI will use your rollover funds first, then your annual election.
You have until March 31 to submit proof of claims requiring substantiation. Unsubstantiated claims incurred with outstanding proof of purchase must be paid post-tax. Please contact ASI Flex with questions.
You can invest your Optum HSA funds over your minimum account balance of $2,000. Optum offers

County orthodontia benefits are "lifetime" benefits, so your maximum with Cigna will be deducted from what EMI (or another provider) has paid on your behalf.
Orthodontia coverage it is
not a guarantee of payment. The total case fee is divided by 4. The first quarter is the down payment and the remaining 75% is divided
by the months in treatment the office supplies. That monthly payment is
made automatically quarterly until the months in treatment have been met, the
braces are removed or the lifetime maximum has been reached, whichever comes
You or your orthodontist should provide a copy of your treatment plan to Cigna Dental to get appropriate credits and payments.

You will not get a dental card, but can verify coverage by calling 800-244-6224.
Your benefit is determined by which kind of provider you see. If you see a Cigna Advantage provider, you'll get the most benefit and pay the lowest cost. County pays more of the cost because Advantage providers have agreed to write off more of the bill.
If you see any other Cigna provider, you pay more of the bill and have a lower annual maximum benefit.
If you go to a provider that either doesn't contract with Cigna or doesn't take any insurance, you have a reduced benefit and a lower annual maximum benefit. The big cost you incur by going to a dentist that doesn't accept Cigna is "balance billing". Balance billing is where you pay the balance left on the bill after the county plan pays what it does for a contracted dentist.
If you have a name change, contact the HR Data Entry team (385-468-0570) with a copy of your divorce or marriage certificate and your new Social Security card.
Once the change has been made in PeopleSoft, benefits vendors will get your updated information.
