Open Enrollment Period

Open Enrollment period is closed for 2024 and will not re-open until late spring of 2025. 

The FY25 Open Enrollment period is April 22 – May 10, 2024.

This is the only opportunity, until the next open enrollment cycle, to enroll in a flexible spending account or to make changes to a medical plan without a qualifying event. Employees that have a qualifying event will have 30 days from the event to enroll or cancel coverage.

  • In FY25, our healthcare plan is changing from Blue Cross of Idaho to Regence Blue Shield. Dental will remain with Blue Cross of Idaho.
  • New Regence medical cards and Blue Cross dental cards will be mailed in early June. Please check your mailing address in Bronco Hub.
  • An open enrollment email was sent sent to all benefit-eligible employees on April 22.
  • A Traditional plan increase email was sent to all Traditional plan participants on April 25.

Verify Providers

To verify if your current provider(s) are in-network or to check current medication coverage/co-pay, please contact Regence Blue Shield at 1-800-854-5585. Regence Blue Shield customer representatives normally request an employee identification number. Boise State employees are new to the network and will not have an employee identification number yet. Provide Group #10060598. New identification numbers will be sent to employees in June 2024.

The Office of Group Insurance provides an “Important Regence Benefit Information” pdf (green button).

Things to know:

  • There are now separate medical (Regence) and dental (Blue Cross) paper applications. All applications must be thoroughly completed for each benefit. Forms not yet available.
  • No Choice Cards this year. Choice Cards will not be available in FY 2025.
  • Regence BlueShield does not allow shared accumulators. If related employees had previously set up two separate Blue Cross of Idaho accounts and then asked for the accumulators (deductibles, out of pocket maximums, etc.) to be connected on the back end, then they will need to evaluate if this is still the best option or if a family plan will better suit their needs. For more information, contact Regence at 1-800-854-5585 and use reference group number 10060598.
