2013 SEHP Open Enrollment

2013 SEHP Open Enrollment

The 2013 Open Enrollment period for the Student Employee Health Plan (SEHP) will be from August 19, 2013 through September 18, 2013.

Eligible employees have the following options for enrolling in the Student Employee Health Plan:

The Open Enrollment period provides employees who were eligible for SEHP last year but chose not to enroll, an opportunity to enroll now without the 30 day waiting period required as a late enrollee.  The open enrollment period does not provide an opportunity for employees enrolled in the pre-tax program to voluntarily change coverage from family to individual, or to cancel coverage.  Such changes may only be requested during November.

Civil Service has requested that HBAs enter a comment in the NYBEAS comment panel for all open enrollment transactions to help them distinguish these from other types of transactions.  This comment can be a simple brief statement, such as:  “Enrollment (or Change of Coverage) During 2013 Open Enrollment Period.”

For GSEU transactions, the “PCT” reason code should be used in order to waive the late enrollment that would otherwise apply.
