Retiree Option Change Period

Welcome to the State Health Benefit Plan’s (SHBP) 2021 Retiree Option Change Period (ROCP) for the 2022 Plan Year. ROCP gives our members the opportunity to review current Plan Options and make changes to coverage based on needs.*

This year, when it may be safer to stay at home, the SHBP will have 2021 ROCP Educational Sessions that you can attend via computer or by phone.

NOTE: For those of you who are retired and Pre-65, not eligible for Medicare Advantage yet, please go to https://shbp.georgia.gov/enrollment/open-enrollment where you will find educational sessions geared toward our Active Members and Pre-65 Retirees.

See below for information, like schedules for each type of ROCP event and instructions on how to join by phone or online. RSVP to reserve your space for an ROCP event. Call the reservation agents at 844-823-5455 to discuss your meeting preference. RSVP hours are 8 a.m.- 8 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday to Friday, and the lines will be available during the ROCP period. Your reservation is not a guarantee of availability. Meeting capacity is filled on a first come, first serve basis.

*During the ROCP, enrolled Retirees shall be given an opportunity to change their Plan Option to any Plan Option for which the Retiree is eligible. Retirees cannot change their Tier (i.e., add dependents) during the ROCP.

Additional Information

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 2021: If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drugs Preferred Provider Organization Plan Option in 2021, you will remain in your current Medicare Advantage Plan Option and Tier with your current Medical Claims Administrator for the 2022 Plan Year.
  • Currently Enrolled in a SHBP Commercial (non-Medicare Advantage) Plan Option in 2021: If you are enrolled in a Commercial (non-Medicare Advantage Plan) Option in 2021, you will remain in your current Plan Option and Tier with your current Medical Claims Administrator in 2022.
  • Currently Enrolled in TRICARE Supplement in 2021: If you are enrolled in the TRICARE Supplement in 2021, you will remain enrolled in the TRICARE Supplement for 2022.

NOTE: If you paid a Tobacco Surcharge in 2021, it will continue to apply. If you did not pay a Tobacco Surcharge in 2021, you will not pay one if you default coverage. The Tobacco Surcharge does not apply to Medicare Advantage members.
