Insurance to-do check list for end of year

December 20, 2013 Denise Pinkney

With 2014 just around the corner, it's a perfect time to complete an insurance checklist to make sure you are ready for the new year.

  • If you have a flexible spending account, check to see if your employer offers a grace period. If not, you will need to use your funds by Tuesday, Dec. 31, or you will lose them.
  • If your health plan includes access to Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota's HealthyBlue online wellness center, you will need to redeem your HealthyBlue points by midnight Dec. 31, or you will lose them.
  • If you will have a new health plan in 2014, your coverage may be changing. Take a few minutes to review your new plan.
