* Health Insurance Wellness Program-Premium Changes 2019-20

As previously announced during last year’s benefits open enrollment, please note the following changes that will take effect during our upcoming plan year:

For employees enrolled in the HRA health insurance plan, for coverage effective June 1, 2019, the University will implement the following premium levels based participation its wellness program:

1. For members that choose not to participate in a wellness screening at the UE Medical Clinic: premiums will increase $23 per biweekly pay ($50 per month)
2. For members that are tested as tobacco users: premiums will increase $14 per biweekly pay ($30 per month)
3. For members with two or more risk factors: premiums will increase $7 per biweekly pay ($15 per month)

Only the most recent screening results will be used in April 2019 to determine premium charges that will be effective May 2019. Last spring, employees and covered spouses were encouraged to get a screening in the 2018 summer months so that they would have plenty of time lower risk factors, if needed, so that they could get another screening by March 31, 2019. As always, screenings are available any time through the clinic at no cost.

If your spouse is covered on the UE health insurance plan, both of you would need to participate and have one or less risk factors to avoid an increased premium. However, if both the employee and spouse choose not to participate, both are tobacco users, etc., there will only be one premium increase.

* A Moment in Black History: Hattie McDaniel

Actress and radio performer Hattie McDaniel became the first African American to win an Oscar in 1940, for her supporting role as Mammy in 'Gone With the Wind.'

Actress Hattie McDaniel was born on June 10, 1893, in Wichita, Kansas. By the mid-1920s, she became one of the first African-American women to perform on radio. In 1934, she landed her on-screen break in the film Judge Priest. The following year, she was awarded the role of Mom Beck, starring opposite Shirley Temple and Lionel Barrymore in The Little Colonel. The part gained McDaniel the attention of Hollywood directors, and was followed by a steady stream of offers, including the part of Queenie in the 1936 film adaptation of Showboat, with Irene Dunne. (McDaniel had previously toured with the stage version of the Kern and Hammerstein musical as well.)

In 1939, McDaniel was widely seen in a film that would mark the highlight of her entertainment career. As Mammy, the house servant of Scarlett O'Hara (Vivian Leigh) in Gone With the Wind, McDaniel earned the 1940 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress—becoming the first African American to win an Oscar. Yet all of the film's black actors, including McDaniel, were barred from attending the film's premiere in 1939, aired at the Loew's Grand Theatre on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia.

Professor Dion has held this position since 2004, making him the longest-serving chair of any city or county civil rights commission in the state of Indiana. During that time, he has served as an appointee of the city government and of the county government and has been named to his post by officeholders of both political parties. The Human Relations Commission has been in Evansville since 1948, and it became part of county government in the 1980s.
