Open Enrollment

posted Oct 3, 2016, 5:39 AM by Greg Shull


The State Health Plan’s Open Enrollment is now through October 31, 2016. 

The State Health Plan will continue to offer active employees a choice between these three plan options:
  • Consumer-Directed Health Plan (CDHP) 85/15
  • Enhanced 80/20 Plan
  • Traditional 70/30 Plan

This year during Open Enrollment, ALL active members and eligible dependents will be automatically enrolled in the Traditional 70/30 Plan for 2017.  If you want to reduce your 70/30 plan premium or enroll in either the Enhanced 80/20 Plan or the Consumer-Directed Health Plan, YOU MUST TAKE ACTION DURING OPEN ENROLLMENT.

This year’s changes include: 
  • If you choose to stay in the Traditional 70/30 Plan, in order to receive coverage without paying the employee premium, you must attest that you are either tobacco-free or will enroll in the QuitlineNC tobacco-cessation program. 
  • Under both the Traditional 70/30 Plan and the Enhanced 80/20 Plan, there are changes to the annual deductible, out-of-pocket maximum and various copays.
  • Beginning January 1, 2017, CVS Caremark will be the pharmacy benefit manager for all health plan options.
