New Online Tool Helps You Pick Health Benefits

If you need help sorting out health insurance plan designs and costs, or if you have questions about supplemental benefits, use the Department of Employee Trust Funds' new online tool, ALEX.

Here are some things to know about ALEX:

  1. It's personalized. You will discover which plan makes the most sense for you and your family. It's like having your own virtual benefits counselor.

  2. It's fun. There's no boring insurance jargon or complicated legal explanations. ALEX provides easy-to-understand explanations in a conversational style.

  3. It's confidential. You can get the guidance you need without revealing any personally identifiable information or personal health information.

  4. It's useful. You can use ALEX to review and compare health plan options and cost factors such as deductibles and tax implications.
