Time’s Running Out
Annual enrollment for the State Health Plan ends today, Wednesday, June 8.
To sign up, visit the portal available through the Benefits Office. You’ll log in using your nine-digit employee ID, not your Unity ID.
All state employees covered by the plan will be automatically assigned to the Basic 70/30 Plan on July 1 unless they attest that they and their covered dependents meet the requirements of the Comprehensive Wellness Initiative. That initiative, adopted by the legislature in 2009, requires that members and dependents avoid tobacco use and maintain a body mass index under 40 (or join approved tobacco cessation and/or weight management programs).
Members who comply with the wellness provisions are eligible to join the Standard 80/20 plan, which provides a higher level of coverage.
If you have questions, contact Benefits at 515-2151 (until noon) or the customer service line at the State Health Plan at 1-888-234-2416 (until 8 p.m.).
