State Health Plan Open Enrollment starts next month
Aug 24, 2018
The State Health Plan announced recently that it would conduct open enrollment from Sept. 29-Oct. 31, for all plan members.
Members will receive a Decision Guide from the State Health Plan in the mail in coming days to prepare you to choose the best plan for you and your family for the upcoming year.
During Open Enrollment:
· All active members will be automatically enrolled in the 70/30 plan, which will have an $85 employee-only premium. Members can reduce this premium by $60 down to a $25 employee-only premium by completing the tobacco attestation. Members who wish to reduce their monthly premium by completing the tobacco attestation or who wish to enroll in the 80/20 plan will need to take action during open enrollment.
· All Non-Medicare members will be automatically enrolled in the 70/30 plan, which will remain premium free for subscriber-only coverage. Subscribers who wish to reduce their monthly premium by completing the tobacco attestation or wish to enroll in the 80/20 plan will need to take action during open enrollment.
· All Medicare retirees currently enrolled in the 70/30 Plan will be automatically enrolled into the UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) Base Plan effective January 1, 2019. You will need to take action during Open Enrollment if you want to be enrolled in a different plan option.
