K-State Today

October 30, 2015



Make your health insurance elections now, deadline is Oct. 31

By Human Capital Services - Benefits

Open enrollment for the State Employee Health Plan closes tomorrow, Oct. 31. Verify your coverage and make any elections as soon as possible. Please note Oct. 31 is a Saturday and the State Employee Health Plan and K-State benefits office will be closed.

Now is the time to make changes to your health plan, enroll in flexible spending account, apply for HealthyKids, select your health savings account contribution amount — if you desire to contribute more than the $600 per year minimum — and verify your coverage and dependents for 2016. All employees are highly encouraged to log into the Member Portal and change or verify their elections for 2016. The portal will close on Oct. 31 and no changes or elections may be made after that date.

Elections and changes made during the open enrollment period Oct. 1-31 become effective Jan. 1, 2016. 

There are changes to both Plan A and Plan C for 2016. Please review the Health Care Booklet for 2016 to review rates and plan options.

To enroll, log into Employee Self Service and follow the path: Employee Self Service > Benefits > Health Insurance Enrollment. You will then need to sign in with your eID and password. You may also need to choose "Kansas State University" as your institution.

Please be sure to visit the Open Enrollment area on the Human Capital Services Website for more information. 

**Please save your confirmation of enrollment from the State Employee Health Plan. You are provided this document after your enrollment. Should you have any issues in 2016 with your coverage, this confirmation will allow you to have proof of your elections.
