2018 State Health Plan Open Enrollment is Sept. 30 - Oct. 31.



Changes are coming in 2018 for State Health Plan members. The first thing you will notice is what used to take about 50 “clicks” to complete online enrollment will now only take about 10 according to the State Health Plan!

Among the other changes according to the State Health Plan:

  • The Consumer-Directed Health Plan (CDHP) is being eliminated (be sure to use your state-provided Health Reimbursement Account, or HRA, funds by December 31, 2017).
  • Family premiums have been frozen for the 2018 benefit year;
  • Copays and deductibles will not increase in 2018;
  • You will only have to complete the tobacco attestation credit.


ALL MEMBERS MUST TAKE ACTION DURING OPEN ENROLLMENT! This includes any newly hired employees!

All members will be automatically enrolled in the 70/30 Plan but YOU MUST TAKE ACTION to reduce your premium. If you prefer the 80/20 Plan, YOU MUST TAKE ACTION! If you want to reduce your monthly premium on either plan, YOU MUST TAKE ACTION by completing the tobacco attestation! If you fail to take action during Open Enrollment, your monthly premiums will be considerably higher in 2018! Once the open enrollment deadline has passed, your premium will be locked.



Tobacco Attestation Wellness Activity

By taking this simple step, you can save money in 2018! If you do not take action, you will pay a higher premium 

 * Even if you attested during last year’s Open Enrollment, you will need to re-attest during Open Enrollment! If you are a tobacco user, you must enroll in the QuitlineNC tobacco-cessation program to receive the wellness credit. You can enroll in QuitlineNC’s program any time between now and December 31, 2017.
