[ARCHIVED] State Health Benefits Program Special Open Enrollment

The State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) and the School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP) are currently holding a special Open Enrollment for employees and retirees under the age of 65 currently enrolled in one of the Horizon HMO Plans. Employees and retirees under the age of 65 who are currently enrolled in Horizon HMO, Horizon HMO1525, Horizon HMO2030, or Horizon HMO2035 have the option to switch to a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), a Tiered Network Plan, or a High Deductible (HD) Plan.

In addition to their initial announcement, the Division of Pension is using targeted communication to inform the over 7,000 eligible employees and retirees. All eligible employees will be receiving a direct mailing from Horizon that will outline qualifications. The Open Enrollment period will take place from February 17 through February 28, 2020. For local government employees that choose to change their plan, the effective date of their new plan will be April 1, 2020.

This special Open Enrollment is for medical plan changes only. Members will not be permitted to add dependents to coverage, change coverage levels, or make changes to dental or prescription drug plans.
