Health Benefits for Retirees

NMUSD Transition to discovery benefits from wageworks

During this transition phase:

  • Hold your August payment until you receive your packet from Discovery Benefits.
  • Currently the estimated time that you will receive the packet is Mid September.
  • This does not affect your plan coverage in anyway.
  • Your current plans continue without any break in coverage. WageWorks and Discovery Benefits are billing administrators only.
  • Grace periods have been extended for this transition. You will not be cancelled. Your current plans continue without any break in coverage.
  • If you had a credit balance with WageWorks, WageWorks is in the process of refunding your credit balance. Currently we do not have an estimate on when the refund process will be completed.

         At this time Discovery Benefits does not have your information and cannot process your payments. Please            continue you hold your August payment.

We realize and apologize that this may be stressful and inconvenient, please be assured that NMUSD and our new partner Discovery Benefits are doing everything in our power to make the move as seamless as possible.

If you have any questions please contact us at benefitsmanagement@nmusd.us

We appreciate your patience and understanding through this transition period.

Thank you,

Benefits Management
