PEEHIP open enrollment allows full-time employees to add and/or change your health, supplemental and flexible spending benefits. There is no wait for pre-existing conditions during open enrollment. You may add or delete coverage for yourself or family members. You may also combine allocations with a spouse that is employed at JSU or elsewhere in Alabama Public Education.
The Open Enrollment period begins July 1st and ends August 31st for changes to be effective October 1st. All Open Enrollment forms and written requests must be postmarked no later than August 31 for the PEEHIP office to accept the request. This year, PEEHIP will NOT BE mailing the Open Enrollment packet to your home address. Instead, all active and retired members will receive a one page notice that will inform you of the current coverage in which you are enrolled, as well as other general open enrollment information. The Open Enrollment booklet and forms will be available on the RSA website shortly on or before July 1st, and you will also able to find this information on the Human Resources forms page at that time. Members can download the information and forms, or members can make changes using the Member Online System. All hardcopy forms are to be mailed directly to PEEHIP at the address indicated on the form.
If members do not wish to make changes to their PEEHIP coverage, they do not need to complete the Open Enrollment application. They will remain enrolled in the same or existing plan(s), and the appropriate premium will continue to be deducted. (Please see below for exceptions)
