An Important Message for NC Health Benefit Representatives

MetLife Billing Portal -
New Link

If you currently have access to MetLife's billing portal, please be advised there is now a new link - https://portal.securemft.metlife.com. You will continue to use the same log in credentials you use today, in the new portal.

MetLife will be uploading the current invoices to both portals for the rest of May. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to NCFlex at ncflex@nc.gov or Mary with MetLife at ncflex@metlife.com.

Employee Webinar Opportunities -
May (Vision) and June (AD&D)
As we move through the year, we continue with monthly sessions to help employees better understand our benefits, one by one. In May we are featuring our Vision plan and in June we will be featuring our Accidental Death and Dismemberment plan.

This information has been shared in the Member May Newsletter (which you can find in on our HBR webpage), but feel free to share the webinars page with your employees also: https://oshr.nc.gov/ncflex-benefits-employee-webinars.
