Employers: Eligibility Changes

Employers should transmit employee eligibility updates to SHBP as often as possible, and no later than 30 days of any eligibility changes. All eligibility records transmitted by Employers are considered accurate as it is an Employers responsibility to determine the eligibility status of its employees. Failure to transmit records in a timely manner will result in inaccurate billing. For other information and timeframes for transmitting employee records, please review the Plan Documents.

SHBP Approved Record Types

The list below includes the approved Record Types accepted by SHBP to transmit employee eligibility records from Boards of Education and other Employer Locations not participating in SAO Peoplesoft. The State Accounting Office transmits employee eligibility records on similar approved Record Types to SHBP with slightly different names and action codes on behalf of State Agencies and Employer Locations Participating in SAO Peoplesoft.
