2022 Plan Year Information

Medical Insurance Providers

The State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) offers five plans, and the same plans are available through either Aetna, or Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas. Caremark serves as our prescription drug provider. Visit each provider’s website to determine which providers are considered in-network.

Full details of the SEHP can be found here.


Plan Options

Plan A is a traditional PPO plan, and Plans C and N are qualified high deductible plans. Plan J was designed to meet the requirements for employees on a J-Visa (but anyone can elect plan J). All options cover 100% of the network provider costs of preventative care services including: a well-person exam, immunizations, routine hearing exam, routine vision exam, and other age-appropriate preventative services. The chart below offers a quick comparison between the plans while using Network Providers, and a more in-depth comparison is available on starting on page 18 of the SEHP Open Enrollment Book.
