Information for church administrators and leadership
Open enrollment period is October 12 through October 30.
Green annual enrollment envelopes were mailed out mid-September to employees currently enrolled in health plans. Employees will use the information to log onto the CPG enrollment system and make plan selections, change dependents and update contact information.
Please use the following attachments as you select plans for your employees and communicate enrollment information.
As you make plan selections and set employer/employee cost sharing, please note that it is a Diocesan policy that employees pay no more than 20% of insurance premiums.

Church Administrators, this is a letter template you may wish to use as a way to communicate plan options and enrollment information to your employees.

Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Fact Sheet and Materials – If your church is a parish (missions do not meet the small employer qualification) and has employees enrolled in Medicare, and has fewer than 20 employees, you may choose to offer MSP plans (marked with an asterisk on the plan chart) which can lower costs for both the employer and employee. Use the following materials to help learn more about this option and to communicate this option to your eligible employees:
- Medicare Secondary Payer Fact Sheet
- Medicare Secondary Payer Eligibility Certification Form
- Medicare Secondary Payer Letter to the Employee
Plan Comparison Chart – This spreadsheet lets you compare coverages and benefits across all plans. Note the Plan Codes under the Plan Title to help identify MSP and non-MSP plans.
