What's New for 2019

The Division of State Group Insurance has three ways to save with new benefit options to shop for health care services, earn tax-free financial rewards, and reduce out-of-pocket health care costs. These new benefits are designed to save the state money and allow employees to share in those savings through the Shared Savings Program:

Three Ways to Save

  1. Healthcare Bluebook offers an online transparency portal that allows members to shop for health services based on cost and quality, and earn financial rewards.
  2. SurgeryPlus provides bundled surgical services with concierge-level support. By taking advantage of this benefit, members can earn financial rewards.
  3. Chard Snyder now offers a health reimbursement account . This new account is one of the options members can choose to receive any reward payments they’ve earned using Healthcare Bluebook or SurgeryPlus.

Securian is now Securian Financial .

During Open Enrollment, Securian Financial will be offering employees the ability to elect optional life insurance coverage at two times their annual salary, without providing evidence of insurability, up to the maximum limit of five times their salary or $500,000. This offer extends to all employees, even those who have been denied optional life in the past as a result of medical history.

For 2019, the health savings account (HSA) contribution maximum for employees enrolled in single coverage has increased to $3,500, and the family coverage HSA contribution has increased to $7,000, including the state’s contribution.
The Division of State Group Insurance (DSGI) is launching a second year of the Weight Management Pilot for eligible members of the Aetna, AvMed, Florida Blue, and United Healthcare plans. The pilot application period is open from Oct. 8 through Nov. 16, 2018.
Employer health insurance premium contributions have increased for the 2019 plan year. Early retirees, COBRA participants, overage dependents, and surviving spouses will see an increase in their premium rates, as these groups pay the combined employer and employee premium.
