2019 Annual Enrollment

2019 annual enrollment begins October 1 and ends November 15, 2018. This is your opportunity to evaluate your health care needs and select a plan best suited to you and your eligible covered dependents. If you would like to remain in your current OGB health plan with the same covered dependents for the 2019 plan year, you do not need to anything EXCEPT update your HSA and/or FSA contributions as applicable. Remember, members enrolled in the Pelican HSA775 and/or FSA options MUST update their contribution for 2019.

What's New for 2019?

Beginning January 1, 2019, the following changes will be effective for our Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana plans:

  • Retiree 100 premium increase to $81.00 per member, per month
  • Retirees with Medicare will see their prescription drug coverage change from Medicare GenerationRx to VibrantRx
  • Retirees with Medicare will be moved to a more restrictive formulary
  • Two new Medicare Advantage options
    • Blue Advantage HMO
    • Humana Medicare Advantage Employer HMO

The contract for Life Insurance with Prudential expires on 12/31/18. A request for proposals was sent out in May. The contract award was protested. Once the protest is resolved, OGB will post more information on the Life Insurance plan.
