The State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP) Retiree Option Change and Open Enrollment for active members for CY 2020 begin on October 21, 2019 and end on November 8, 2019.  Although the mail copy of the SHBP Decision Guide is not yet in the mail, the Decision Guide has posted on the DCH website.  The schedule of education meetings for retirees has also been posted on the website. The open enrollment site for SHBP enrollment requires the computer to have Adobe Flash downloaded.


Silver Sneakers is Not Going Away!
Some GSRA members may have heard a rumor that the Silver Sneakers program is going away in 2020 for UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Plans. While it is true that UHC is discontinuing Silver Sneakers for individual MAP plans, it is not discontinuing the program for group MAP plans, such as the SHBP MAP.
