If you are enrolled in Veolia’s medical, dental, and/or vision plan on your last day of employment at Veolia, your coverage will continue through the last day of the month in which your separation occurs. You will be offered continuation of coverage in accordance with the terms and conditions of COBRA. You will receive a COBRA notification letter from Optum Financial within 30 days of your separation date. COBRA coverage will be effective the first of the month following the month of separation, pending your COBRA election and receipt of your COBRA premium payment. If you have questions regarding COBRA, please contact Optum Financial at (855) 687-2021. The COBRA monthly rates can be found under our COBRA Insurance Continuation section.
Please note that if you are enrolled in a Health, Limited Purpose, and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA), coverage ends as of your termination date. You have 90 days to submit eligible claims incurred through your termination date. You may elect to continue participation in the Health FSA on an after-tax basis through COBRA until the end of the current plan year. Additional information regarding COBRA FSA can be obtained by contacting Optum Financial (844) 609-1806.
If you are enrolled in either Veolia’s HSA Gold or HSA Silver medical plan and would like to transfer your HSA from Fidelity to a new HSA custodian, please request a transfer form from your new HSA custodian. An account transfer may take 4 to 6 weeks to process, as some banks have a 30-day window to release funds before mailing the check. If you do not transfer your HSA funds, your account will be converted to an individual account at Fidelity with an administration fee deducted from your account each month.
