A frequently asked question is, "What if I don't enroll?" The chart below explains the benefits and enrollment requirements.


All active State of Kansas (SOK) employees and Non State Group (NSE) employees who are currently enrolled MUST make selections for Plan Year 2022. If you are currently enrolled and do not re-enroll, then your medical coverage will be defaulted to Plan N with your current medical carrier and an HRA for the employer contributions.


Members currently enrolled in a Vision plan MUST enroll for 2022 benefits since there is a new vendor. If you do not re-enroll, you will not have vision insurance for Plan Year 2022.


Members only enrolled in the Dental plan only will remain enrolled for 2022.


Members currently enrolled in the Voluntary Benefits insurance only will remain enrolled in those plans for 2022.


Members who have waived coverage will remain waived.
