Learn about the Health Plans

We offer four plan options to fit your health and financial needs with the goal of simplifying the health and wellness experience, offering stability and affordability to employees. FY23 will build on last year’s changes, allowing for a more cost-effective and beneficial state health plan.

The health plan presentations were designed to provide you with the information you need to pick the best health plan for you and your family during Open Enrollment. We encourage you to attend one of the presentations listed below, and visit the FY23 Plans page and view the available materials.

Please Note: FY23 will be a passive Open Enrollment. A passive enrollment means that if you do nothing, your benefit elections will not change once the fiscal year rolls over on July 1, 2022. However, you must select the amount to contribute to your Medical FSA, Dependent Care FSA or Combination FSA during Open Enrollment. Your current payroll deductions for a Medical, Dependent Care or Combination FSA will not automatically be continued. If you wish to make changes, you will have the opportunity to do so from May 2 – 16.
