-Adopt the Carryover provision on the Dependent Care FSA and allow employees to carry-over the entire unused balance of Dependent Care FSA from 2020 to 2021 and 2021 to 2022

-Permit employees to make mid-year election changes to the Health and Dependent Care FSAs with a family status change or qualifying event.

New Second Opinion Service 2nd.MD Available Through UHC

The City of Milwaukee is offering a new second opinion service (2nd.MD) through the UnitedHealthcare (UHC) health plan. 2nd.MD is a virtual expert medical consultation and navigation service available at no cost to employees and family members enrolled in the City’s UHC health plan.


Why is UHC Calling?

It may seem unusual, but the next time your phone's caller ID reads "UnitedHealthcare," there's a  good chance it's an offer to connect you with information to help you manage or improve your health.  These are not sales calls, rather, these calls are used to extend invitations to members including wellness coaching, disease management and pregnancy resources.
