Medical Plans Overview

*Employees hired after July 1, 2020 will only be able to enroll in the Educator Health Plan (EHP) or the Garden State Plan (GSP).   

*Employees hired prior to July 1, 2020 will be able to choose between four medical plans with the SEHBP:  The NJ Direct 10, the NJ Direct 15, the Educators Health Plan (EHP) or the Garden State Plan (GSP).  The network will be provided through Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey and will include their national Blue Card network.

NJ Direct 10 is considered a Buy-Up and should be calculated using the Chapter 78 contribution percentages of premiums and the difference between the Direct 10 and Direct 15 premiums. 

NJ Direct 15 is still calculated using the Chapter 78 contribution percentages of premiums. 

NJ Educator Health Plan (EHP) is calculated using Chapter 44 contribution percentages of salary.

NJ Garden State Plan (GSP) is calculated using Chapter 44 contribution percentages of salary (administered through Aetna).

Employees waiving medical/rx coverage must log onto Benefitsolver to waive, as well as submit the BCSSSD waiver form annually to the personnel department.

Important Update

We have received important correspondence from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield regarding Coordination of Benefits requirements. The message is as follows: 


Coordination of Benefits must be updated by the member at least every 365 days for each dependent- otherwise dependent claims will be denied until information is received. 

Employees can go to www.Horizonblue.com/SHBP log in to the Member Portal or call Horizon Health Guide at 800-414-7427 to update their COB information. 

To update your COB information online, access your Horizon member portal, select Benefits & Coverage > Benefits Overview > Coordination of Benefits.    Once completed, a confirmation number will be provided to you. 


Garden State Plan (GSP) - Important Information 

We have recently been advised that the final required component of Chapter 44, the Garden State Plan (GSP), will be rolled out on July 1, 2022.  The GSP will change two things for any employee who enrolls in the plan.  First, the plan only allows care to be accessed from New Jersey providers who participate with AmeriHealth New Jersey’s Local Value Network.  If you or your family see providers in Philadelphia, or anywhere else outside of New Jersey, this plan will not provide the same level of benefit you are used to.  Care from providers and facilities outside of NJ will only be covered in the event of a true medical emergency.  The second adjustment is a further reduction of your employee contribution.  The contributions for the GSP are half with 1.5% of salary being the lowest percentage possible.  For example, the EHP contribution for a single making $40,000 a year is 1.7% of salary.  Half of 1.7% is 0.85% of salary, since that is less than 1.5% then the GSHP contribution is only reduced to 1.5% of salary.  The GSP will be offered in addition to the three plans the District currently offers.
