Student Employment Orientation

The Student Employment Online Orientation has been moved to Northwest Online/Canvas. In order for a new student employee to complete the training we will need to add them to the system. We have identified students, by their start date of January 1 or later, whom we believe need to complete the orientation. We will be inviting them to participate in an online course called “Student Employment Orientation”. They will receive an email inviting them to the course today. They will then have the capability to complete the online modules. Please check with your new hires to make sure they have received the invitation and encourage them to complete the orientation within the next three business days. In order for the course to be “completed” the students grade should reflect 100%. Students should be compensated for their time to complete the training modules. If your student employee did not receive the email invitation and the course is not available in their Northwest Online page by tomorrow morning and they need to complete it, please contact us and we will add them to the course. Some of these students who will receive the email may have already completed the training. If this is the case please notify us by sending an email with their name so we can remove them from the course. In the future new student employees will automatically be added to the system upon completion of their employment authorization paperwork. Below and attached are directions for completion of the orientation that you may share with your new hires. We appreciate your assistance with this matter and your patience as we worked to move the orientation to a new platform. If you have any questions, please call Student Employment in the Office of Human Resources at (660) 562-1140.

Directions to Northwest’s Student Employment Orientation Online:

  1. Go to the Northwest homepage – www.nwmissouri.edu/login/.
  2. Select “Northwest Online” and login.
  3. Under “Courses” select “Student Employment Orientation”.
  4. Next, complete all modules listed below. There are two parts to each module:  first, the information about the topic and second, an activity. The activity must be successfully completed with a score of 100%  to confirm your knowledge of the topic. The score will be recorded and will confirm completion of the orientation. Please record your time on your timesheet for the completion of all modules.

Benefits and Wellness Information

Corrected: Pharmacy Plan Updates for 2021

During open enrollment, communication was released regarding changes made to Northwest’s pharmacy plans for calendar year 2021. As a reminder, those plan updates include: 

  • Narrow pharmacy network: Allows members to use in-network pharmacies typically at a lower cost than out-of-network pharmacies. A previous email provided incorrect information related to Rogers Pharmacy in Maryville; Rogers Pharmacy is still considered out-of-network.
  • OptumRx Mail Service Member Select: Members must choose to fill maintenance medications either through OptumRx home delivery or retail pharmacy. Please contact OptumRx at 844.579.7774 to declare your choice.
  • Premium Drug Formulary: A small percentage of members will experience changes in either cost or medication brand for certain medications. Members impacted should have received notification of these changes from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. 

For more information regarding these changes, contact the Office of Human Resources at 660.562.1127.


BlueKC Extension of COVID-19 Coverage and Policies

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) remains focused on ensuring our members have access to the care they need as the COVID-19 pandemic continues into the fall and winter.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced they will extend the COVID-19 public health emergency period through April 20, 2021 (it was previously set to expire on January 20, 2021).

As a result, Blue KC is announcing we will go beyond the public health emergency period and extend the following coverage and member relief through June 30, 2021 for Commercial plans (ACA Individual and Family plans will observe the COVID-19 benefit coverage until the end of the emergency period only):

  • Waiving all member cost sharing for virtual (face-to-face), telephone, e-mail or text visits for medical services or behavioral health therapy (cost sharing still applies to physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy).
  • Waiving all member cost sharing and copayments for in-patient hospital admissions due to the diagnosis of COVID-19 for Commercial plans. Applicable cost share applies, under plan provisions of each policy, for ACA Individual and Family plans.
  • Prior authorizations will be waived for diagnostic tests and for outpatient covered services that are medically necessary and consistent with CDC guidance if diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • COVID-19 tests ordered by a physician, and associated services, will continue to be covered with no cost sharing for Blue KC members. Note: Tests and services that are work-related, as well as public surveillance testing are not covered.
