Health Insurance Transfer Period
From the Vice President for Finance and Management
Each year, employees who are enrolled in the New York State Health Insurance Program may select a different health plan by completing change forms in the Human Resource Management Office. Employees may choose from the Empire Plan or one of the three health maintenance organizations: Community Blue, Independent Health, or Univera.
Employees will have 30 days from the date the 2009 rates are approved and published to change their health insurance carriers. The New York State Employee Benefits Division will mail information about the new health plan rates and deadline dates to enrolled employees’ home addresses. “Choices,” a comparison booklet of the insurance plans, will be available in the Human Resource Management Office by mid-November. Please call 878-4821 to receive a copy.
