  • 3 How soon after starting work will my benefits be active?

  • 4 What do I do if my dependents or I lost Medical ID Cards?
    Digital copies of your cards are available via your Anthem online profile and the Sydney health app. Please note you will need your Member ID to register. If you do not have your member ID on hand or wish to order new cards, please call Anthem member services at 1-800-662-5502.
  • 5 What do I need to provide HR if I am pregnant?

    Please inform your benefits technician at your earliest convenience in order to begin your leave process as early as possible. Pregnant individuals have access to protected leaves such as PDL (Pregnancy Disability leave), FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), and CFRA (California Family Rights Act). Your benefits technician will provide you with our FMLA Medical Certification and FMLA Request for Family Medical Leave forms to be filled out by you and your doctor and returned to us once completed. You may also be provided with Lincoln Disability forms for you and your physician to complete. Please do not forget to inform us when your baby is born as this will help us track your leave, and begin the process of adding them to your benefits. To process the addition of your child(ren) to your benefits, you will need to present the following documents to your benefits technician:

  • 6 Is there a waiting period for Disability?
    Yes, there is a thirty (30) day waiting period before disability kicks in. Additionally, if an employee has more than 30 days of sick leave available all unused sick leave must be exhausted prior to disability becoming effective.
  • 7 Is there a self-service portal where I can see my current benefits?
    Unfortunately, we currently do not have such an option. Please feel free to reach out to your benefits technician for confirmation of your current benefits coverage.
  • 8 What cards can I expect to receive for my benefits?
    You can expect to only receive your Anthem Medical card(s) for yourself and/or spouse, dependent children will not receive insurance cards. Dental and Vison cards are not needed nor provided, you can access your dental card by registering for your Delta Dental account.
  • 9 Is it possible keep dependent children on benefits if over twenty-six?
    Yes, it is possible for employees to keep their dependent child(ren) on their benefits if they are disabled. In order to do so employees must have a Disabled Dependent Form completed by their physician and submitted to the address listed on the form.
  • 10 When do funds in my Health Savings Account (HSA) need to be spent?
    The short answer is September 30th. The longer more informative answer is, you have a grace period of seventy-five (75) days after September 30th to spend remaining funds in your HSA account and ninety (90) days after September 30th to submit any pending documents. To see your account balance and/or pending items please register for an account.
