What’s New

Health care costs are expected to go up by more than 6% across the country. We’ve been able to hold medical rates flat for the majority of employees and XPO will continue to pay 80% or more of the cost of coverage. Visit myXPO Portal for detailed cost information during Open Enrollment or review the personalized enrollment worksheet mailed to your home.

Just a reminder that we all share a responsibility to be smart health care consumers. Please review the Health Care Consumer Tips below for ways to save money.

Missing required fields


Being a smart health care consumer means you take the time to consider all of your health care options and make the best decision for your particular situation. Keep these tips in mind!

  • The Basic HSA or HSA Plus plan may be the best plan for you. With an HSA plan, you’ll pay less in payroll deductions. If you elect HSA Plus, you’ll also receive a contribution from XPO to help pay for eligible health care expenses. Learn more about HSAs.
  • You’ll save with an HSA or FSA. You’ll save valuable tax dollars and lower your taxable income when you open an HSA or Health Care FSA. The money you contribute or withdraw in these accounts is tax-free when you use it for eligible health care expenses.
  • Only use the emergency room for true emergencies. Trips to the ER can be expensive and cost you a lot out of your own pocket, so be sure you only visit an ER when absolutely necessary. Use urgent care facilities, schedule a visit with your doctor or use telemedicine when you have minor injuries or illnesses. Take advantage of LiveHealth Online for a nominal fee or 24/7 NurseLine for free. Nurses are on call to answer any health questions you might have and to provide guidance on emergency care, urgent care and more.
  • Consider generic prescriptions instead of brand-name prescriptions. Generic prescriptions are usually considerably less expensive and are approved by the FDA. Ask your physician or pharmacist if your prescription has a generic alternative and save money.

HSA Contribution Minimum

If you like the convenience of contributing to your Health Savings Account (HSA) through payroll deductions, you’ll need to contribute a minimum of $500 for the year.

  • If your 2020 contribution was less than $500, you must make a new election for 2021.
  • If your 2020 contribution was $500 or more, your election will roll over to 2021.

You Can Save More on Taxes

HSA contribution limits are set by the IRS each year. The amount you may contribute is triple-tax protected and depends on which HSA option you elect, whether XPO contributes, the coverage level you choose and your age.

Invest a Little Time in Understanding Your Benefits

Life at XPO can be pretty busy, but if you can invest a little time in learning about your benefits or testing what you think you know, we think you’ll find it’s time well spent.

  • Watch the short videos we put together for you.
  • Think about your benefit needs for next year.
  • Think about your family’s benefit needs.
  • Challenge your assumptions about why you choose your current benefit options.
  • Are you taking advantage of tax-saving opportunities?
  • Check out other tools and resources, like the interactive medical plan comparison tool on myXPO Portal, Your Benefits.

Confirm Coverage for Your Dependents

Go to myXPO Portal or speak with an XPO Benefit Center representative to review your dependents’ coverage and update personal information. Remember, if you are adding a dependent, you will be asked to verify dependent eligibility with documentation and provide the dependent’s Social Security Number. You will have 60 days to provide documentation.

XPO conducts random audits of covered dependents of employees if not previously verified as eligible. Employees with dependents not previously verified will be asked to provide proof of their dependents’ eligibility within 60 days of the request. It is very important that you ensure the dependents you are covering are eligible and remove coverage for any ineligible dependents during Open Enrollment.

Any dependent who is found to be ineligible for coverage as a result of a random dependent verification audit will have coverage canceled.

Confirm Your Beneficiary Information

Enrollment is a good time to review your beneficiary designations and update them, if necessary. You can do this while enrolling online at myXPO Portal or by calling the XPO Benefit Center.

 

Are You a New Employee?

You can only make changes to certain pre-tax benefits during the year if you experience a Qualifying Event as defined in the Benefits Plan Summary Plan Description (SPD).

If you experience a Qualifying Event during the year, you can make changes appropriate for the type of life event within 45 days of the event date. Visit myXPO Portal or call the XPO Benefit Center.

See Changing Your Benefits for more information.

If you don’t enroll within 45 days of your date of hire, you will automatically be enrolled in:

  • NO MEDICAL COVERAGE
  • Short-Term Disability Insurance
  • Long-Term Disability Insurance
  • Basic Life Insurance
