MSU Moorhead will be hosting an EMPLOYEE Informational Meeting on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 in the CMU Ballroom – 200A, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The SEGIP (State Employee Group Insurance Plan) Report newsletter is on its way to your home address! This newsletter will provide information on what’s open and what is changing.  Since the Employee ID is necessary to access the Employee Self Service page, each employee’s ID number will be printed on their mailed newsletter.

An electronic version of the newsletter will also be available (around October 18th) on the MMB website.

The SEGIP Report is your first available glimpse at the upcoming changes for 2014. Detailed information about changes can be obtained by attending an Employee Open Enrollment Meeting.

Open Enrollment information will also be made available on the MMB website by October 18, 2013.

SEGIP is proud to announce StayWell as our new employee wellness partner, You may have already received your welcome post card. StayWell has joined the state to provide the Personal Health Assessment and support programs starting with this year’s Open Enrollment! This will enable employees to better assess their health habits and improve on areas of risk. Employees that complete the PHA and agree to accept a coaching call during the Open Enrollment period will earn a $5.00 reduction in office visit copays for themselves and their covered dependents for the entire plan year.

NOTE: If you have stored information or want to gather information from our previous provider, JourneyWell, their website will be available only until October 31st.

Here’s a list of the benefits open this year:

StayWell Personal Health Assessment (and wellness programs)
Child Life
Long Term Disability
Manager’s IPP
FSA/Pre-Tax Medical Dental Expense Account
FSA/Pre-Tax Dependent (Daycare) Care Expense Account
FSA/Pre-Tax Transit Expense Account

Among the highlights for 2014 is an increased annual benefit of $1,500 for dental plan participants, and the return of the Benny Card with which employees can access their Medical/Dental Expense Accounts (MDEAs), or Pre-Tax dollars. The Minnesota Advantage Health Plan will also introduce a new on-line care benefit. This simple diagnostic tool provides access to a health care provider via the internet, regardless of one’s location or access to certain care systems. The benefit is designed to function like the Convenience Care benefit, without the confines of location. The benefit is provided without referrals, is not subject to the deductible, and is provided for a $10.00 copay, regardless of one’s selected Cost Level.

More information will be forthcoming from MMB Insurance Division.
