Notice regarding Plan B moving to Plan A

Message Text:

 

The following information from the Kansas Health Policy Authority is to notify agencies that an update was made to the Self-Service Open Enrollment website on Friday, October 19th. Any employees that defaulted to Plan B and had not yet made a change in their enrollment are now defaulted to Plan A.

An important change has been made in the information provided in the Open Enrollment meetings and booklets. Employees currently enrolled in Kansas Choice and Coventry PPO who did not make a change in their enrollment during this Open Enrollment period will automatically be defaulted to Plan A with the same health carrier. This change will affect employees enrolled in a PPO plan who have not made an open enrollment election and those enrolled in a PPO plan who have gone on to the enrollment system but did not make a change in their health care election. For these two groups of employees their health plan coverage will be defaulted into Plan A. A letter is being sent to employees affected by this change.

With the added choices and improved benefits, the vast majority of employees currently enrolled in Kansas Choice and Coventry PPO would save money with a switch to Plan A. Employees may also want to consider the Qualified High Deductible Health Plan (QHDHP) with Health Saving Account (HSA). The Open Enrollment online system has been updated to show all Kansas Choice and Coventry PPO members in Plan A.

With the added choices and improved benefits we encourage all employees to carefully review their plan options and make their Open Enrollment elections before October 31, 2007.
