No Changes to 2023 Rates

Great news! Through the cost of healthcare continues to rise in the U.S., Sysco’s medical, dental and vision premiums are not increasing for non-union colleagues in 2023. Rates will be available in the Total Rewards Café by October 26.

Domestic Partner Coverage

Beginning January 1, 2023, Sysco will cover domestic partners under all Health & Welfare benefits, including Medical, Dental and Vision Plans, Life Insurance and AD&D, and Critical Illness and Hospital Indemnity coverage. If you cover a domestic partner, you will have to submit the date of birth and Social Security number for your domestic partner during the enrollment process. The Dependent Verification Center will request documentation, including a notarized affidavit, from you to support the domestic partnership. You can find more information about verification on the Eligibility page of the Benefits Guide. Also, see page 4 of the comprehensive Enrollment Instructions for how to add a dependent to your coverage.

Rates for domestic partners can be viewed in the Total Rewards Café during your enrollment period. Rates are post-tax and subject to imputed income. Consult with your tax and/or your financial advisor for additional details.

Important Reminders

Make Sure Your Current Providers are in the Network

Occasionally, providers move networks. Take a moment to make sure your providers are in the network. To see if a medical, dental, behavioral health and other providers are in the Aetna network, click here. You will be prompted to select a plan name. The plan names are:

If Both You and Your Spouse/Domestic Partner* Work at Sysco

If you and your spouse/domestic partner* are both eligible to enroll in the Sysco Health and Welfare plans, you can select one of the below enrollment options:

  1. You may each enroll independently/separately in Sysco benefits
  2. You may cover your spouse/domestic partner* as an eligible dependent under your plan (or vice versa)

Please note – you cannot elect both option 1 and 2. No Sysco colleague can be covered as both a dependent and a colleague under the plan. In addition, your child(ren) cannot be covered as a dependent by both you and your spouse. Only one of you can cover your eligible child(ren).

*As of January 1, 2023, Sysco will cover domestic partners under our benefits plan.
