The ANJC webinar on the major changes to the State Health and School Employee Health Benefits Program recorded on Tuesday, October 30 is now available.
We have previously reported that all Medicare eligible retirees under the SEHBP (teachers) who are enrolled in traditional Medicare with either the NJ Direct 10 or NJ Direct 15 plans will be automatically enrolled into new Aetna Medicare Advantage plans. It has come to our attention that additionally, any retired SHBP (police, fireman, etc.) employees who had been enrolled in the Horizon Medicare Advantage NJ Direct 10 or 15 will also be moved to new Aetna Medicare Advantage plans.
Additional details have become available regarding changes to the School Employee Health Benefits Program (SEHBP). First, the changes previously described were approved by the School Employee Health Benefits Commission and are hence, official. Both the new plan option and the retiree changes will be effective as of January 1, 2019.
