As an employee of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany or Catholic Charities you can use this website to help you make an informed choice regarding which of the health insurance plans offered by the Diocese best suits your needs.
The annual Open Enrollment period for the Diocese is the month of December with changes taking effect January 1, 2018. If you are not currently enrolled in a plan you may do so without a qualifying event. If you are already enrolled you can change plans or add/remove dependents. If you have questions about your eligibility for coverage please check with your immediate employer.
If you are a new employee eligible for health insurance your coverage will be effective the first of the month following your date of hire.
New this year: Please note that eligible employees who are not making any changes to their current benefits will still need to complete an Acknowledgement and Waiver of Health Benefits Form (found here) for inclusion in their personnel file. These forms should be returned to their employer.
The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act mandates that a uniform Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) be available to employees to assist them in making plan comparisons. If you need printed copies please ask your employer.
Employees must make a payroll contribution to the cost of coverage. To view the various costs for the available plans we have provided an "Annual Cost Chart". Please note that CDPHP has different rates for different regions based upon your work location. If you work less than 30 hours please check with your employer regarding eligibility. Contribution levels based on hours worked can be found here. Notices regarding certain options and rights that may be available to you can be viewed here.
