What’s New in 2021?

Medical and Dental Premiums

Premiums are subject to change annually. The employee responsibility of the premiums is determined by your collective bargaining agreement if you’re in a union position. If you are Management Confidential (MC), your responsibility is determined by ECMC policy. The medical premiums for 2021 did change and the applicable rates were mailed to your home address.
