All In-Progression Members

A letter has been mailed to all In-progression members (hired in 2007 and after) to make you aware of upcoming changes to your coverage under the FCA US LLC Health Care Plan for Represented Employees. These changes are as a result of contract negotiations and take effect on February 1, 2020.

You are currently enrolled in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan or Medical Mutual of Ohio Standard Care Network (SCN) medical plan option for In-Progression employees.

Effective February 1, 2020, medical coverage for you and your covered dependents will automatically be transferred from the SCN medical plan option to the BCBSM or MMO Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) medical plan option for In-Progression employees.

Starting February 1st you can elect to switch your coverage from the PPO to the SCN option and you do so before March 31, 2020.

  • If the election is made during the month of February 2020, coverage under the new option will be effective April 1, 2020.
  • If the election is made during the month of March 2020, coverage under the new option will be effective May 1, 2020.
  • If no election is made in February or March, you will remain in the PPO. You will not be able to elect a different option until December with a February 2021 effective date. Going forward, regular rolling enrollment rules will apply for any health care election event.
  • Elections must be made online at Benefit Connect or call 888-409-3300.
