It's Your Choice 2016
State of Wisconsin
Group Health Insurance Program
(State Employees, Retirees, Continuants and Graduate Assistants)
Opt Out of Medical Benefits
Beginning January 1, 2016, state employees may be eligible to receive up to $2,000 from your employer if you opt out (waive coverage) of state group health insurance coverage. To be eligible you cannot have opted out in 2015, and you also cannot be covered under the State Group Health Insurance Program as a dependent. You are not eligible for the opt-out incentive in 2016 if you are covered by the State Group Health Insurance program even one day in 2016 (see FAQs for more information).
You are required to submit a Group Health Insurance Application/Change Form (ET-2301) to your payroll office during It’s Your Choice open enrollment to receive the opt-out incentive for 2016. New hires must also submit a Group Health Insurance Application/Change Form (ET-2301) within 30 days of your hire date indicating you are opting out of health insurance.
