Transit Benefit Program
In early spring 2020, CUNY will be changing the Transit Benefit provider from WageWorks to Edenred Commuter Benefit
Solutions. This is part of our continued effort to provide the highest quality commuter benefits to our employees.
Due to the upcoming change, the new Transit Benefit provider will be sending
a new card to current participants to the address we have on file in CUNYfirst.
For that reason, it is very important that you have the most up to date email and mailing address in CUNYfirst. Please
take a moment to log into CUNYfirst to verify your email and mailing address. Also, now is the best time to log into your
WageWorks account (https://participant.wageworks.com) to review your balances and verify that your email and mailing
address matches the information we have in CUNYfirst.
We will continue to provide you with more information and guidance over the next few
months to make this change easy for you. Please be on the lookout for future correspondence.
For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 212-650-7226.

HEALTH PLAN CHANGES
HIP HMO Health Plan HIP HMO Prescription Rider -There are 2 Plans:
• HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Grandfathered), or
• HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Standard)
HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Grandfathered): This is the current prescription drug rider for HIP HMO Gold Preferred plan. Only those employees who were in the HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Grandfathered) prior to November 1, 2019 can continue to be enrolled in this plan. The prescription drug rider is only for those employees belonging to unions/welfare funds that do not offer prescription drug coverage.
HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Standard): This prescription drug rider has a lower premium than the HIP HMO Preferred Plan (Grandfathered) plan, and the cost sharing is similar to the GHI-CBP Optional Rider. Please refer to the SBC for this plan’s prescription drug rider information. All new employees who are hired on or after November 1, 2019 will only be offered this new HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Standard).
Employees who are currently in the Grandfathered plan can select the HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Standard) during the 2019 Annual Transfer Period, effective January 1, 2020.
Any employee who transfers out of the HIP HMO Grandfathered plan and selects another health plan will not be allowed to choose the HIP HMO Grandfathered plan again. However, for as long as the employee remains in the Grandfathered plan, the employee can make changes within the plan such as adding or dropping dependents and/or changing their rider option to either individual or family, if the employee experiences a Qualifying Event (employment and/or family status change).
Employees who were hired on or after July 1, 2019 and are enrolled in the HIP HMO Grandfathered plan will be allowed to transfer to the new HIP HMO Gold Preferred Plan (Standard) during the Transfer Period, effective January 1, 2020. The employee’s original hire date will be used as the start date for the 365 day HIP requirement, and not the Plan transfer date.
Empire HMO Health Plan:
The Empire HMO plan will be closing effective December 31, 2019. The plan will be replaced by the Empire Blue Access Gated EPO plan effective January 1, 2020.
All employees and their dependent(s) enrolled in the Empire HMO plan will be enrolled automatically in the Empire Blue Access Gated EPO plan on January 1, 2020. They have been notified by Empire of this change. If the employee has questions regarding benefits, they should contact Empire at 1-844-235-4453 between 8:30a.m – 5:00p.m. ET.
If the employee doesn’t want to be automatically enrolled in the Empire Blue Access Gated EPO plan, the employee may select another health plan during this transfer period.
Note: Please refer to the revised Health Benefits Program SPD, SBC, and November 2019 Health Plan Rate Charts on our website (available at the end of October 2019).
