Enroll in 2021 health insurance coverage by Oct. 31

Submitted by Human Capital Services

October is open enrollment for health and voluntary insurances through the State Employee Health Plan. All benefit-eligible employees who currently have coverage must enroll in health coverage by the Oct. 31 deadline or will be defaulted into Plan N with a Health Reimbursement Account, or HRA, for 2021 coverage. If you waived coverage in 2020 and would like to continue to waive coverage for 2021, no action is needed.

Human Capital Services and the State Employee Health Plan websites provide detailed information regarding the health insurance plan designs and tools are available to help you make your insurance election. Ask Alex is a helpful tool to assist you in making or verifying your decision for 2021.
