    Holiday hours
    The Insurance Department will be closed December 24 and 25, as well as December 31 and January 1. 
    The Insurance Department has made the following revisions to our health care flex and dependent care flex due to COVID-19.

    Health care flex
    Over the counter medical products and feminine hygiene products without a prescription from a physician are now allowable. This change is effective March 27, 2020 for this plan year.

    Dependent care flex
    The COVID-19 situation allows for an election adjustment due to life event changes. COVID-19 related life event changes are effective March 27, 2020 for this plan year. Please reach out to the Insurance Department with questions at 763-506-1080.

    Examples of life events that would allow changes include:
    • Change in employment status for you or your spouse
    • FMLA leaveFMLA leave
    • School closing resulting in no need for daycare
    COVID-19 & Workers Compensation
    Simply being exposed to COVID-19 does not constitute a workers compensation claim. In order to claim Work Comp coverage, the employee must both:
    1. Test positive for COVID-19
    2. Show that they have been exposed to COVID-19 at work (either through presumption or contact tracing, depending on the role)
