No enrollment changes are allowed to your benefits during the plan year, except in the case of a Qualifying Life Event.
Qualifying life events that can result in changes to your benefit coverage include the following:
Qualifying Life Events (Medical):
If you have a qualifying life event, notify State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) of the event as soon as possible by calling them at (800) 610-1863 or process your changes on the enrollment portal. You must also provide the necessary supporting documentation to them.
Please refer to the State Health Benefit Plan Decision Guide for additional details regarding qualifying life events.
Qualifying Life Events (Non-Medical):
If you have a qualifying life event, notify the Benefits Service Center of the event and your new elections. You must also provide the necessary supporting documentation to the Benefits Service Center via fax at 866-597-2202 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 31 days of the change. If you do not do so within 31 days, you must wait until the next open enrollment period to make any benefit plan changes.
