As part of the state’s
comprehensive response to COVID-19, the State Employee Health Plan has made a
change to the coverage of benefits related to COVID-19.
All members will receive a copy of this notice through their preferred email address that was provided through the Member Administration Portal (MAP) during open enrollment.
Effective April 1, 2021, the SEHP will no longer cover the full cost of services related to COVID-19 when received through a Non Network provider.
If a member seeks care for COVID-19 services from a Non Network provider, it may result in additional out-of-pocket costs to the member. These services will only be covered at the same level of allowable charges as Network providers. Any amount over the allowable charges will be considered non-covered and will be the responsibility of the member. In addition, services received from a Non Network provider will be subject to the Non Network deductible and coinsurance portion of the medical plan. The deductible and out-of-pocket maximums for Non Network services accumulate separately from the Network deductible and out-of-pocket maximums.
To search for a Network provider, please consult the provider directory for your respective medical plan vendor.
Should you have any questions, please contact the State Employee Health Plan at SEHPBenefits@ks.gov.
Benefits Extended through May 28, 2021
The SEHP has extended the benefits outlined below through 05/28/2021 when provided by a Network provider. The Health Plan will continue to consider these benefits for further extension as the deadline approaches.
