Benefit Updates for 2020:
The following changes will be effective January 1, 2020. If a benefit is not listed below, it will not be changing for 2020. Details of all Marathon Petroleum benefit plans can be found in the 2020 Marathon Petroleum Benefits Guide.
BenefitSolver will administer all benefit changes during Annual Enrollment and for qualifying events in 2020. Employees can access their benefit elections and request changes at www.BenefitsEnroll.com.
Employees at Legacy Marathon locations will continue using the benefit change form for qualifying events through the end of 2019.
MPC Health Plan
Employee monthly contributions for both options will increase in 2020.
Employee monthly contributions for the Kaiser Northern California option will decrease and contributions for the Kaiser Southern California option will increase.
* The Kaiser Health Plan is only available to members with a permanent residence within the Kaiser California service area (N. CA or S. CA).
Effective January 1, 2020, there will be a lifetime coverage maximum of $15,000 that the Plan will pay for fertility drugs for a covered individual. If a member chooses to purchase the medications after meeting the maximum, the member will be responsible for the full cost. Please note that any fertility drugs covered under the Plan prior to January 1, 2020, will not be counted toward this lifetime maximum.
Optional Employee Life Insurance - Allowable Changes
Historically, employees could increase by only one level of life insurance. Beginning in 2020, employees can increase by any level; increases of more than one level and/or coverage that exceeds $750,000, will require a Statement of Health.
Optional Spouse/Domestic Partner and Child Life Insurance
Domestic Partners and children of domestic partners will be eligible dependents for Optional Life insurance in 2020. Employees will also be able to enroll in Optional Spouse Life, or Optional Child Life as independent elections- enrollment in the employee optional life is not required.
- Employees can increase their current Spouse Life coverage by 1 level, up to $50,000, with no Statement of Health required.*
- Employees can increase to any level, up to $100,000, with the completion of a Statement of Health.*
- Any coverage elected over $50,000 for spouse life insurance will require a Statement of Health (regardless if the increase is only one level).*
* Also applies to waived coverage.
Optional Accidental Death and Dismemberment - Benefit and Eligibility Changes
The Optional Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Plan is changing to allow dependent only elections, with coverage in flat increments. Domestic partners (DP) and children of a domestic partner will also be considered eligible dependents for Optional AD&D. Also effective January 1, 2020, Optional AD&D will be an after-tax benefit.
Beginning in 2020, all life insurance beneficiary designations will be maintained by MetLife.
Employees at Legacy Andeavor locations will continue to use Benefitsolver through the end of 2019 to designate life insurance beneficiary information. Communication on how to access MetLife’s beneficiary system will be sent the first of the year.
Hyatt Legal Plan provides employees, spouses and dependents with fully covered legal services from attorneys for a wide range of legal matters. The monthly cost is $15.75 and includes telephone and office consultations for an unlimited number of legal matters. Once elected, this coverage can only be changed during Annual Enrollment.
Marathon Petroleum will continue to offer a financial wellness incentive in 2020, with some changes in eligibility. Married couples who are both employed by MPC will each be eligible for the full $400 employee incentive upon completion of the required activities. The additional $200 incentive will be limited to spouses who are on an MPC-sponsored health plan. Complete details regarding the 2020 program will be communicated by Well ALL Ways.
Anthem Blue View Vision
Anthem Blue View Vision will be the in-network provider and administrator of the Vision Plan for legacy Andeavor employees for 2020. (This is not a change for legacy MPC employees.)
Beginning January 1, 2020, for any qualifying event, you will have 31 days, including the date of the event, to contact BenefitSolver to request a change (e.g., marriage, divorce, etc.), and provide supporting documentation of the event, otherwise the change will not be approved.
