Campus Notes

  • State Health Plan Open Enrollment is now under way, and continues through October 31. Several changes have been approved for the 2018 benefit year, meant to reduce plan complexity for members while still maintaining quality health coverage and providing long-term financial stability for the State Health Plan. The online enrollment process has been simplified, requiring 10 clicks, versus about 50 required last year. Note that all members will be automatically enrolled in the 70/30 Plan, but can select the 80/20 Plan. For either plan, employees MUST TAKE ACTION – completing the tobacco attestation during the Open Enrollment period – to reduce the premium. For more information please review the Decision Guide that was mailed to your home address. Additional information can be found on the State Health Plan’s website at www.shpnc.org.
