Health Insurance Change

January 22, 2024

The State of Idaho Office of Group Insurance (OGI) has announced State of Idaho employees will be transitioning health insurance coverage from Blue Cross of Idaho to Regence Blue Shield of Idaho starting July 1, 2024. 

At this time, ISU has very limited details about the specifics of the change and we await additional information from OGI as they work through a transition plan. Here are some aspects of this change that OGI has shared with us at this time:

  • The State of Idaho will still offer the same three health insurance plan types (PPO, Traditional, and High Deductible)
  • Dental coverage will remain with Blue Cross of Idaho
  • Flexible spending and health savings accounts will remain with our current vendor, Navia
  • OGI plans to provide significant communication in the near future for employees regarding this change

ISU HR will closely monitor updates and will communicate additional information as soon as it becomes available. We appreciate the patience of employees as we wait for more information regarding these planned changes.
