Annual enrollment in the State Health Plan for all state employees begins on Sept. 29. The enrollment period ends on Oct. 31.

There are a few changes this year, starting with good news: premiums will not increase for the 2019 benefit plan year. Also new is the process to receive the $60 wellness credit. To receive the credit, employees must re-attest that they are not a tobacco user, or attend one tobacco cessation counseling session at a CVS Minute Clinic.

Changes to the 80/20 plan will affect the out-of-pocket maximum and specialist and inpatient hospital copay. Also, the wellness incentives offered under the 80/20 plan for Blue Options-designated specialists and hospitals have been discontinued.

All State Health Plan members who don’t specifically choose the 80/20 plan during open enrollment will be automatically enrolled in the lower-cost 70/30 plan.

More information about changes to both the State Health Plan and new NCFlex options is available through this Benefits and Leave Administration page.
