Payments are made via Baystate Health payroll deduction. Payroll deduction is not available to employees who work less than 16 hours or are in a per diem employment status, however, payment can be made directly with the benefit carrier.

When you purchase preventatives, supplements, and medications, you can expect savings of:

  • $198/yr (Healthy Pets)
  • $1,005/yr (Cushing's Disease)
  • $1,166/yr (Arthritis)

Once you enrolled on the BenefitsPlus website, your new coverage information is sent from Mercer to Pet Assure/PETplus. This enrollment file is sent every Monday to Pet Assure/PETplus. You should allow three business days for the file to be processed and the Pet Assure/PETplus system updated with your information. Approximately one week after this, Pet Assure/PETplus will mail your enrollment confirmation and policy documentation to the address you provided. This information will contain your Redemption Code. Once you receive this code, you can begin using the service. It can take around 2-4 weeks for you to begin seeing premiums deducted from your paycheck.

For example: If you enrolled on the BenefitsPlus website on Tuesday May 2, Mercer would send the file to Pet Assure/PETplus on Monday May 8. Pet Assure/PETplus should have your enrollment in in their system on May 11. You will receive your Redemption Code via a home mailing, approximately May 18 and you can begin using the service at that time.

If you are in a per-diem employment status or work part-time (less than 16 hours or less than 15 hours VNA), the above process does not apply as you will enroll and make payments directly with each carrier.
