2014 Eligibility Changes

SHBP has gone paperless! To make a change in enrollment due to a Qualifying Event (QE), members no longer use paper forms. 

Instead, members log onto the SHBP Enrollment Portal at and declare a Qualifying Event (QE) to make the change.

  • To update your address or to correct personal data, active employees must contact their Benefit Coordinator/HR department and request they submit the update on their next file to SHBP. Retirees can make their changes on the Enrollment Portal.
  • Active employees or retirees who do not have web access may call the SHBP Call Center at 800-610-1863 and a representative will assist you with making the change.
  • You will continue to submit QE supporting and dependent verification documentation to the secure fax at 866-828-4796. To expedite the process, the member’s social security number must be noted on each page of the documentation.

2014 Wellness Appeals
