Important Health Care Information for AFSCME, SCUPA & PSSU Employees

The following information applies only to AFSCME, SCUPA, and PSSU Employees:

Get Healthy Program

The PEBTF has announced that they will be offering a special opportunity to employees to complete a Health Assessment to obtain the lower employee contributions. The Special Health Assessment will be offered from August 1, 2011, through August 15, 2011. On July 15, 2011, the PEBTF sent letters to all eligible employees about this special opportunity to reduce their health care contribution to 1.5% of their gross base pay retroactively to July 1, 2011. The special opportunity applies to the following situations:

  • The employee and spouse completed the Health Assessment in April 2010, participated in the required Get Healthy Program if "At Risk" or "Chronic", but the employee and/or spouse did not complete a Health Assessment in April 2011.
  • The employee and/or spouse did not complete the Health Assessment in April 2011.

The Special Health Assessment will not be available to those employees who completed a Health Assessment in April 2010 but did not participate in the required Get Healthy Program if "At Risk" or "Chronic."

Employee with questions regarding the Get Healthy Program and the Special Health Assessment offering should contact the PEBTF’s Get Healthy Unit at (800) 522-7279, active member prompt (4), Get Healthy prompt (1).

PEBTF Enrollment Policy Changes

Effective July 1, 2011, employees eligible for coverage in the PEBTF active employee health plan will be able to enroll in a health plan at any time without a Qualifying Event and will be able to add dependents at any time without a Qualifying Event. This includes adult children ages 19–26 who were not added during the PEBTF’s Open Enrollment. In all cases, the effective date of coverage cannot be more than sixty days retroactive. Dependents who were terminated from coverage due to the employee’s failure to submit the required documentation (attestation forms, birth certificate, etc.) may be reinstated if the employee submits the required documentation to the PEBTF. If the involuntary termination occurred more than six months from the current date, an appeal must be filed to the PEBTF’s board of trustees.

The policy requirements regarding removing dependents, changing plans, or dropping coverage has not changed. These changes still require a Qualifying Event. For more information or questions regarding qualifying events, contact the Office of Human Resources, (724) 357-2431.
