2017 Open Enrollment

To all benefit eligible employees:

It is that time of the year again when Mountain Land holds its open enrollment for medical and other benefits. Amidst the pervasive increase of healthcare costs across the country, we have carefully evaluated our medical benefits and have looked to see what we can do to maintain and improve this vital benefit. We appreciate the candid feedback that we have received from many of you throughout the year. As a result of our efforts to meet your needs, we have made several significant changes this year including: A new Provider Network; a new Third Party Administrator (TPA); a new Pharmacy provider; and a new optional High Deductible Health Plan accompanied with a Health Savings Account (HSA) which, in addition to our traditional plan, will give you options to help you manage and control your individual healthcare services and costs.

From Monday, November 14th through Friday, November 18th, you will have the opportunity to review and sign up for your benefits. You will also be able to make changes to your current elections, update dependents and ensure that you are getting the most out of your benefits. Changes made during Open Enrollment will be effective on January 1, 2017. The premiums for the January benefits will be deducted from your December 2016 pay check. If you choose not to participate in medical insurance coverage during this enrollment period, you will not be eligible to join the plan later in the year unless you experience a qualifying life event.

We realize that these changes will create some disruption for you although we remain confident that you will ultimately experience excellent healthcare, improved claims processing and options to reduce your healthcare costs. This year we will conduct Open Enrollment online through I-Solved. During the week of Open Enrollment, we will have multiple educational sessions with staff standing by to answer questions and to assist you. Thank you for being a part of our Mountain Land Team. We will continue to do our best to offer quality benefits and make Open Enrollment a positive experience.

Mountain Land And Neuroworx Team Up To Provide Adaptive Ski Day

adaptive-ski-day-2016-5Late this past summer, Mountain Land Physical Therapy teamed up with Neuroworx to provide an Adaptive Ski Day at Last Chance Lakes in Tooele, County.

The Adaptive Ski Day is a USA Water Ski sanctioned event that allows individuals experiencing physical disabilities an opportunity to enjoy a fun and safe time out on the lake with the support of experienced professionals. Many of the skiers were very active in sports prior to their injuries so having an opportunity like this makes them feel right at home.

adaptive-ski-day-2016-3Mountain Land and Neuroworx therapists assisted the skiers throughout the process, ensuring they were safe and comfortable while having fun. In addition to the Mountain Land and Neuroworx team members, there were certified boat drivers and other volunteers on hand to provide a great experience for everyone who participated.

A team effort is crucial to helping each skier have a safe and successful ride. Skiers ride on an adaptive ski that is customized to fit their individual needs. A designated water starter stabilizes the skier holding on to them as the boat picks up speed. Once the skier gets on plane, the starter lets go and the fun begins!

adaptive-ski-day-2016-2Once the skier is underway, a support team of drivers, spotters and swimmers are on hand as the skier makes laps up and down the lake. A chase boat follows close behind the skier with a swimmer ready to jump in and assist if the skier has any trouble. With the help of all of our great volunteer team members, six skiers were able to enjoy an exhilarating ride on the water that day!

Although this is the last Adaptive Ski Day of the year, Mountain Land and Neuroworx have three more ski days planned for 2017. Adaptive Ski Days would not be possible without the help of Mountain Land Physical Therapy, Neuroworx and the many volunteers who were a part of the fun at Last Chance Lakes. If this is something you’d like to participate in, please contact Rick Lybbert at rick@mlrehab.com.
