Empire Plan Summary of Benefits Available Online

The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires all insurance plans to make available a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) for benefits-eligible employees, retirees and dependents.  Current Empire Plan enrollees were mailed a postcard discussing the availability of the 2019 Summary of Benefits and Coverage and Uniform Glossary online at www.cs.ny.gov/employee-benefits/sbc.

Enrollees who do not have internet access may call 1-877-7-NYSHIP (1-877-769-7447) and select the Medical/Surgical Program to request a copy.

The Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) is a simple and standardized multi-page comparison tool that is intended to help consumers better understand and compare available health insurance options.

While this information may be helpful, enrollees should also refer to other plan material, such as the Choices booklet, the 2019 At a Glance and the rates and deadlines flyer for the most comprehensive coverage and benefit information.
