CHANGES TO MEDICAL BENEFITS FOR MEDICARE INDIVIDUALS
Why did the 2024 Your Spending Arrangement (YSA) funding remain the same as it was in 2023?
Sandia reviews the Your Spending Arrangement (YSA) funding amounts each year. The benchmark Sandia utilizes is the Consumer Price Index for Urban Areas (CPI-U) for medical care services. Sandia sets the annual increase in YSA funding amounts using 50% of the increase in the CPI-U for Medical care services. Historically, this benchmark has increased year over year which leads to increases in the YSA annual funding amount. The CPI-U for Medicare care services showed a decrease for 2024 this last review; however, Sandia decided to keep the YSA annual funding amounts for 2024 flat instead of reducing the annual funding amounts.
If you’re a surviving spouse and currently have medical coverage, you can enroll in the Sandia group-sponsored Dental Care Program with Delta Dental of New Mexico. If you waive this coverage, you will not have another opportunity to enroll in this program in the future.
For your health and safety, open enrollment meetings will not take place in person this year.
