For all employees eligible for insurance benefits, there are TWO OPEN ENROLLMENTS that are mandatory.
KEHP Online Enrollment for Health Insurance
Cafeteria Plan Enrollment with Annuity Associates at your school.
2019 KEHP (Kentucky Employee Health Plan) Health Insurance Open Enrollment is October 8th through October 26th.
(NOTE: The last two weeks of KEHP enrollment are during the SCPS Fall Break. You will not be able to log in after the 26th.)
Health insurance and waiver enrollments are still MANDATORY for every employee.
This is an active enrollment and EVERYONE must make an election even if you are not making changes.
"I waive insurance, do I need to?" YES
"I'm new, my insurance just started, do I need to?" YES
"I don't need insurance, do I need to?" YES
"I want everything to stay the same, do I need to?" YES
If you do not enroll, you will default into the LivingWell High Deductible Plan at whatever coverage level (i.e. single, parent plus, etc.) you had last year!
NEW FOR 2019:

2019 FAQS ABOUT KEHP BENEFIT SELECTIONS
2019 Cafeteria Plan Open Enrollment is coming soon. The Cafeteria Plan representatives from Annuity Associates will be in our district October 8 - October 12 and again on October 29 - November 9.
The district’s third-party administrator, Annuity Associates, Inc., will be at each school or location shown on the schedule below to assist employees during the open enrollment period.
Please note: Each eligible employee, including those new employees who recently completed the 2018 enrollment process, must meet with Annuity Associates, Inc. during the open enrollment for 2019 and complete the enrollment form required by the IRS, otherwise the employee will not have any pre-tax benefits starting January 1, 2019. This is an IRS requirement, so the district has no flexibility.

Cafeteria Plan Options (dental, vision, etc.)
The Cafeteria Plan Options are different from health insurance and state life insurance. These benefits include dental plans, cancer insurance, vision coverage, short-term disability insurance, long-term disability insurance, additional term life insurance, tax-deferred retirement plans, charitable contributions, and dues. As required by the IRS, you MUST meet with a representative from Annuity Associates each year.
