The Fiscal Year 2014 Benefit Choice Period is May 1 through May 31, 2013, for all SURS members. This is the only time of the year, other than when you experience a "qualifying change in status," that you may change your coverage.
CMS has scheduled statewide Benefit Fairs. Health, dental, vision and life insurance providers will be on site.
If you currently have health insurance under an HMO, this is information you need to know.
Most HMOs do not cover their members outside of the coverage area for anything less than life threatening or emergency situations. Even in situations such as this, the benefits may be limited. We highly recommend contacting your HMO to find out exactly what they will cover while you are outside of their coverage area.
