    Click the BCBS PPO Insurance, EE + Child(ren), Biweekly* option.

    Step 15
  16. As you go through Open Enrollment and make your selections your total deductions per pay period will be displayed.  There is a Recalculate button at the top of the page which will update your total.

    Step 16
  17. Click the Recalculate button.

    Step 17
  18. Notice how the total has updated.

    Step 18
  19. After making your selection click the Next > > button.

    Step 19
  20. In this lesson we selected Dental coverage for both ourselves and our dependent.  Since there is only one plan offered for Dental coverage, if you selected coverage for both yourself and your dependent(s) you will not see a screen with the Dental plan, and you will be taken directly to the Vision selection screen.


    If we had only selected Dental coverage for ourselves then we would have been taken to a screen where we would have the option to waive Dental coverage. 

    Step 20
  21. Even though we did not see the screen with the Dental coverage in this lesson, the Total Deductions Per Pay Period amount has been updated to include the cost of the Dental coverage.

    Step 21

    If you recall, we selected the Vision check box for ourselves but not for our dependent.  This allows us to waive the coverage.  Had we selected the check box for both yourself and our dependent we would not be given the opportunity to waive coverage. 

    Step 22
  23. Click the WAIVER - VISION option.

    Step 23
  24. Click the Next > > button.

    Step 24

You have completed the Health Coverage Selections lesson.
