Yes. The cost of healthcare continues to rise in the U.S., impacting Sysco at a company level and as individual participants. We provide tools, resources and education to help you make the most of your benefits and manage your healthcare costs each year. In 2022, the increase to Sysco’s medical premiums will be minimal. Rates for each plan will be available in the enrollment system beginning October 27.

Yes. The prescription drug covered that is included in your Sysco-sponsored medical plan will be provided by CVS, an Aetna preferred carrier. There will be some changes to the prescription drug coverage:

  • Sysco will implement the Aetna Value Drug List, which means that certain medications, supplements and products will be available at no cost to you. The Aetna Value Drug List will be available on Aetna.com starting January 1, 2022.
  • Maintenance Choice will be a feature of your plan. This is mandatory; after 2 monthly retail refills, the prescription can only be filled in 90-day supplies through a CVS retail location or through Caremark® Mail Service Pharmacy. If any of your prescriptions are impacted during the transition to the Aetna pharmacy network, you will receive notification directly from Aetna. Please keep an eye out for any communications from Aetna/CVS.
  • Sysco will also implement the Exclusive Specialty Drug List, which means that certain specialty drugs will be offered at $0 copays. The Exclusive Specialty Drug List is available on Aetna.com for those who enroll in PrudentRx starting January 1, 2022.

Please note: most active prior authorizations will transfer to the Aetna pharmacy plan.

The dental plans will be provided by Aetna in 2022. The plans will be the same for 2022 with one enhancement: The Premium Dental plan coverage will now include adult orthodontia benefits, as well as child orthodontia. Previously, it covered children to age 26 but no coverage for adults.

The 2018 Wellness Rewards Program window ended on November 1, 2017. If you and your spouse completed the requirements by November 1, 2017, and earned your Wellness Reward for 2018, your reward will be deposited in your healthcare expense account in January 2018! Don’t be concerned if your Wellness Reward amount is not displayed in the enrollment system on the Total Rewards Café in 2017. Your 2018 Wellness Reward amount will not appear in the system until January 2018.

Please note: If you and your spouse completed the requirements early — by October 1, 2017 — and did not choose to receive your reward a different way during 2018 Benefits Enrollment, you will receive your reward as a credit to the medical plan premium taken from your paycheck each pay period in 2018.
