The Option Transfer Period for NYS employees will be December 10 through January 18, 2019. During the annual Option Transfer Period, employees may make changes to their NYSHIP option, including enrolling in the Opt-out Program.
If you currently participate in the Opt-out Program and wish to continue receiving incentive payments in 2019, you must re-enroll in the Opt-out Program during the Option Transfer Period.
For more option transfer information, go to NYSHIP Online at www.cs.ny.gov/employee-benefits. Select Health Benefits & Option Transfer and then Rates and Health Plan Choices.
