The East Ohio Conference is switching to the HealthFlex benefits program in 2018. Our conference joins 28 others across the denomination in using the health benefits plan offered by Wespath Benefits and Investments, a general agency of The United Methodist Church.
Participants select medical/pharmacy, dental, and vision plans; choose eligible dependents to cover; and can contribute to reimbursement accounts for pre-tax savings in 2018 and to save for future health needs.
Click here to view the HealthFlex Benefits workshop video and learn more about the plan and available options.
PARTICIPANTS MUST ELECT A PLAN during the enrollment period of Wednesday, November 1 to Thursday, November 16.
FOUR AREAS OF FOCUS: United Methodists live out our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world through Four Areas of Focus: Engaging in Ministry with the Poor; Improving Global Health; Developing Principled Christian Leaders; and Creating New and Renewed Congregations.
RULE OF CHRIST: This ministry resource applies Jesus’ teachings from Matthew 18 to the life of the local church by creating a process that aids pastors and congregation in managing conflicts, disagreements, and relationships because healthy disciples make other healthy disciples, who, together, transform the world.
