Pension & Health Benefits






OPEN ENROLLMENT begins November 1, 2017.
Pension and Health Benefits Video Presentation from 2016 Annual Conference

The Conference maintains a self-insured health insurance program and other benefits for all eligible clergy, full-time Conference lay employees, and full-time lay employees of participating churches within Holston.

In 2017 we will offer two distinct medical plan options and an optional, limited benefit, dental plan and vision plans. We also offer optional Medical Spending (FSA) accounts and Dependent Care (DCA) accounts administered by “Professional Benefit Solutions” as pre-tax deduction elections.

Please refer to the current “Book of Reports” or Conference Journal to review eligibility guidelines.

Open enrollment takes place November of each year and plan elections can be changed and previously eligible / non-participating clergy and lay may enroll for the upcoming calendar year. Enrollment may take place during the plan year for individuals who are newly hired or who have lost other coverage involuntarily. Changes in participants’ dependents (Marriage, new-born / adopted child, etc.; also constitute “Qualifying Events” that would permit enrollment at a time other than the November period.

In "Our Resources", you will find helpful information to assist you in making decisions about your health insurance benefits including EOBs (Explanation of Benefits) for the two plans and the dental and vision coverage,  and a chart which compares benefits between the two plans, current premium rates for 2017 Network P and Network S options, as well as other general information.

You can call the benefits office (865-293-4136) at any time if you have questions concerning plan benefits, cost, eligibility, or any other information you need. Our fax number is 865.690.3162
