What if I do not take any action?
If SHBP does not receive an election from you through the website, or by contacting SHBP Member Services, you have made a decision to take the default coverage below:
- Currently Enrolled in a SHBP Medicare Advantage Plan Option in 2023: If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drugs Preferred Provider Organization Plan Option in 2023, you will remain in your current Medicare Advantage Plan Option and Tier with your current Medical Claims Administrator for the 2024 Plan Year.
- Currently Enrolled in a SHBP Commercial (non-Medicare Advantage) Plan Option in 2023: If you are enrolled in a Commercial (non-Medicare Advantage Plan) Option in 2023, you will remain in your current Plan Option and Tier with your current Medical Claims Administrator in 2024.
- Currently Enrolled in TRICARE Supplement in 2023: If you are enrolled in the TRICARE Supplement in 2023, you will remain enrolled in the TRICARE Supplement for 2024.
NOTE: If you paid a Tobacco Surcharge in 2023, it will continue to apply. If you did not pay a Tobacco Surcharge in 2023, you will not pay one if you default coverage. However, if you received a waiver of the tobacco surcharge and your tobacco status has changed, it is your responsibility to notify SHBP immediately.
The Tobacco Surcharge does not apply to Medicare Advantage members.
