Health Insurance

 

The State shares the cost of health coverage with you. While the State covers the majority of the cost, you must make monthly contributions determined by your annual salary.

Opt-Out

Full-time employees have the option to opt-out of health coverage if they have other comprehensive coverage provided by an entity other than the Department of Cerntral Management Services. Proof of other coverage and appropriate documentation must be submitted. Be advised that if you have previously opted-out of benefits, you can re-enroll only during the Benefits Choice Period. 

 

Qulifying Changes in Status

After the Benefits Choice Period ends, you will only be able to change your benefits if you have a qualifying change in status. 

You must report a qualifying change in status at MyBenefits.illinois.gov within 60 days of the event to be eligible to make benefit changes outside the Benefits Choice Period.

Life changes that may impact your eligibility:

  • Newborn, newly acquired dependent(s) or loss of dependent(s)
  • Marriage, divorce, legal separation, annulment or death of a spouse
  • Change in spouse or dependent’s employment, Public Aid or Medicare status
  • Change of home address

 

 

Note: If you are not currently enrolled in benefits due to previous nonpayment of premiums, contact the Premium Collection Unit to discuss your Benefit Choice Options at 217-558-4783.
