Updating Other Health Insurance Information Using Self Service in HRS


This document shows an employee how to update their Other Health Insurance and Medicare Information through Self Service.

Process Considerations:

  • Employees should be updating this information whenever a change occurs to their Other Health Insurance or Medicare Information. This is used for Coordination of Benefits between insurances to determine primary payment responsibility between the health vendors.
  • You may not enroll in a High Deductible Health Plan and Health Savings Account if you have other health insurance that is not a disqualifying HDHP or you are covered by Medicare.
