What’s new or changing for 2024


  • Associate rates. While many companies are reporting double-digit increases to their rates, we’re happy to announce that associate premiums for the Cigna HRA, Cigna HSA, and all Kaiser plans will not change for 2024. Cigna PPO rates will increase by approximately 10%.
  • Medical plan features for all options will stay the same.
  • Transition to digital ID Cards. Starting in 2024, Cigna will be transitioning to digital ID cards exclusively. This means that new hires, recent enrollees, or individuals who alter their medical benefit will not receive a physical card next year. However, rest assured that your digital ID card will be readily accessible through If you prefer a physical card, you can request a hard copy by calling Cigna at 1.800.997.1654.

Do I have to enroll?

If you want to keep the benefits you have now and don’t want to make changes for 2024, most of your current benefit elections will roll over (at 2024 rates) EXCEPT:

  • Health savings account (HSA) contributions
  • Flexible spending account (FSA) elections

You must make HSA and FSA elections each year to participate.

Who is eligible

Who is eligible


If you are a full-time or part-time associate regularly working at least 24 hours per week, you are eligible for coverage in Veradigm Health and Welfare benefit plans.

Your dependents

Your dependents who are eligible for coverage include your:

  • Legal spouse or domestic partner.
  • Dependent children up to age 26 (or older, if your child is permanently and totally disabled).

Important notes:

  • When covering a domestic partner, contributions for your domestic partner will be deducted on a post-tax basis. You will also pay taxes on the imputed income on the portion of benefits paid for by Veradigm for your domestic partner to be covered.
  • Have your dependents’ Social Security numbers (SSNs) on hand when enrolling them in benefits. U.S. health care reform requires SSNs to be reported to the IRS for each covered individual.
  • If you add a dependent to your health insurance coverage who does not qualify as a tax dependent under the Internal Revenue Code Section 152 and Notice 2010-38 (such as a domestic partner), the Fair Market Value (FMV) of VeradigmVeradigm contribution toward that coverage is considered a taxable fringe benefit, subject to tax withholding. This calculated fringe benefit is known as imputed income.
