What if I do not sign up for a plan during open enrollment?
If you are eligible and do not sign up for benefits, you will be enrolled in the UMP Achieve 1 employee only plan ($33 per month), Uniform dental plan, Metlife vision and you will have to pay the tobacco use surcharge ($25 per month). You will not be able to make changes, including adding dependents, until the next open enrollment unless you experience a qualifying event.
The SEBB Program is designed to be affordable for all school employees. It meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and the longtime goals of the Legislature in providing school employees with family medical insurance at an affordable cost.
We understand that some employees who only cover themselves may see an increase in their monthly premiums. However, employees covering dependents will likely see more affordable premiums.
With the SEBB Program, what won’t change is your access to affordable insurance options — even if you change districts, return to SEBB after waiving medical coverage, add or remove a dependent, or switch from full-time to part-time status.
