New Health Plans for 2019

During this fall's open enrollment period, most State employees will be able to choose from three new medical/prescription plans for coverage in 2019. There will also be enhancements to the standard dental and vision plans, as well as new dental and vision options offering even more coverage than the standard plans.

Click here for highlights of the new plans. The Office of Employee Benefits will provide more details about the new health plans and how to choose the plan that’s right for you later this summer.

As always, you can make changes to your benefits elections as a new hire, following a qualifying status change, or during the annual open enrollment period.
