Standard Plan

The Standard Plan is one of two State Health Plan options. Features of the Standard Plan include:

  • Lower deductibles. The Standard Plan has individual deductibles as well as family deductibles. When one family member meets his deductible, the Standard Plan will begin to pay benefits for him. This happens even if the family deductible is not met.
  • Copayments. Standard Plan members pay a copayment for services. A copayment is a fixed amount you pay for a service in addition to your deductible and coinsurance.
  • Prescription drug coverage. Members pay a copayment for prescription drugs. Prescription drugs are only covered at network pharmacies.

You can enroll during:

  • Your initial enrollment;
  • Open enrollment in October; or
  • A special eligibility situation.
