The State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) Open Enrollment period for Local Government employees began on October 1, 2023, and closes on October 31, 2023.
Open Enrollment allows employees to make general changes (adding or deleting dependents, changing coverage levels, etc.) or enroll in a different medical or dental plan. All changes to coverage made during this Open Enrollment period will be effective on January 1, 2024.
Please review the Division of Pension & Benefits memorandum of Plan Overviews; Summaries of Benefits and Coverage; and changes for Plan Year 24.
Changes to minimum deductible amounts set forth by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations necessitate modifications to the SHBP High Deductible plan offerings for Plan Year 2024. To meet the IRS minimum deductible amounts required to contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA), the HD1500 plan will be replaced by a new NJ DIRECT HDLow plan, and the HD4000 plan will be replaced by a new NJ DIRECT HDHigh plan.
The 2024 SHBP Virtual Benefits Fair is available through open enrollment and all open enrollments must be submitted through mynjbenefitshub.nj.gov.
