  • Indiana Public Retirement System - New self-service website

    In January 2018, INPRS will be launching its new self-service secure website but before then, there’s a few things employees may wish to do.

    * Log on to your INPRS account and print off any statements and 1099s you’d like to keep. After December 27, 2017, these will be unavailable.
    * Update your personal information. Call INPRS at (888) 286-3544.
    * If you're thinking of retiring, you’ll need to submit a retirement application before December 3, 2017. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until the new online retirement application becomes available in January.
    * Remember – the quiet period begins on December 27, 2017 – members won’t be able to make any investment changes until on or about January 2, 2018. If you’re thinking about changing your investment allocations, you need to do so before or after the quiet period.

  • St. Vincent’s Mobile Digital Mammography Unit on campus

    HR is announcing the St. Vincent’s Mobile Digital Mammography Unit on-campus in room HP 1041. Call 812-485-4437 to set up your appointment directly with St. Vincent’s Breast Center. Inform them that you are a USI employee or spouse of an employee making an appointment for the on campus visit on Thursday, December 14. 

    Digital mammography works in the same way as traditional mammograms but instead of capturing images on x-ray film, which has to be developed, images are captured digitally and immediately sent to a computer monitor.  This allows our radiologist to manipulate the image’s brightness, contrast and magnification to help detect any cancer that may be present.  Patient accesses to this technology, through the availability of a mobile unit, will allow us to provide the best technology available to women who may not otherwise have access to this technology. 

    St. Vincent’s Breast Center also offers the advantage of having a dedicated Breast Radiologist, Dr. Charles Lackey, on site at all times.  Dr. Lackey is a Board-Certified Breast Radiologist, who is extensively trained in breast health, completed a breast fellowship at Washington University, St. Louis, and continues to study breast imaging extensively.  Dr. Lackey will carefully examine all the images obtained and a letter will be mailed with the results on the next business day. 

    You do not need a physician’s order. Women with implants can have a digital mammogram.  Mammograms are normally covered under all insurance plans and your insurance carrier will be billed for these services.  It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company first before scheduling.  Anthem will cover screening  mammograms for USI employees and their spouses.  The time span in-between annual screenings does not have to be exactly one year plus a day from the date of your last screening.  However, you are only allowed one mammogram screening under your wellness benefit per calendar year.
