Don't Miss Open Enrollment for Health Insurance

Submitted by Mary N Gatza

If you have not had a chance to enroll in the Health Insurance of your choice don't miss out. Open Enrollment starts October 1, 2020, and ends on October 31, 2020.

You can find the 2021 health plan rates in the 2021 enrollment Guide booklet. Non-State Employees should contact their Human Resources or local administrator for 2021 health plan rates.

This is an Active Enrollment Year. All covered members must enroll in a plan during the Open Enrollment period. If a Plan is not selected by October 31, you will be automatically enrolled in Plan N.

NOTE: Members who have waived coverage will remain waived.

What happens if I do not enroll? 

  • Medical Coverage - All active State of Kansas (SOK) employees and Non-State Group (NSE) employees who are currently enrolled MUST make selections for Plan Year 2021. If you are currently enrolled and do not re-enroll, then your medical coverage will default to Plan N with your current medical carrier and an HRA for the employer contributions.
  • Dental and/or Vision - Members only enrolled in the dental and/or vision plan will remain enrolled in those plans for 2021.
  • All Voluntary Benefits - Members currently enrolled in the Voluntary Benefits MUST enroll to select the plans offered by The Hartford. IMPORTANT: If you do NOT enroll, you will no longer have these benefits. 
  • Waived Benefits - Members who have waived coverage will remain waived.

You can enroll by going to your HRIS Self Service (HRIS>Self Service>Benefits>Health Insurance Enrollment) or by going to the Membership Administration Portal (MAP).

The plan Year 2021 Enrollment Book, Open Enrollment Presentations, and Vendor Resources can be found at the SEHP 2021 Open Enrollment web page.
