All employees and dependents enrolled in the State Health Plan will be moved to the 70/30 Plan effective January 1, 2019.  If you want coverage under the 80/20 Plan, you must take action by going to the enrollment site and selecting the 80/20 Plan!  If you want to reduce your employee only monthly premium by $60.00 on either plan, you must take action by either attesting to not being a tobacco user or agreeing to visit a CVS Minute Clinic for at least one tobacco cessation counseling session within 90 days of Open Enrollment.  If you fail to take action during Open Enrollment your monthly premiums will be higher in 2019!

Find an In-Network Provider: When using an in-network provider, your out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles and coinsurance responsibility will be lower than if you use out-of-network providers. An in-network provider is one contracted with the State Health Plan to provide services to plan members for specific pre-negotiated rates. Out-of-network providers do not have these contracted rates, therefore your expenses will be higher.
