SUMMARY: Changes to STARS Funding and Providers for Group Health Insurance

The following provider changes have been made for the State of Kansas 2002 group health insurance plan year:

1.) New Medical Provider:

Kansas Preferred: plan type 10, deduction codes KSPRAT and KSPRBT
STARS funding file - fund 7700, index codes 9702 (employee) and 9802 (employer)

2.) New Vision Plan:

Enhanced Vision Plan: plan type 14, deduction codes VSHIAT and VSHIBT
STARS funding file - fund 7700, index code 9703
Note: The vision plans have no employer contribution.

3.) Provider name changes:

Healthnet will become Mid America Health. This is a name change only.
All other information will remain as plan type 10, deduction codes HLNTAT and HLNTBT.
STARS funding file - fund 7700, index codes 9716 and 9816.

Vision Service Plan will become Basic Vision Plan, in order to distinguish between it and the new Enhanced Vision Plan. This is a name change only.
All other information will remain as plan type 14, deduction codes VISNAT and VISNBT.
STARS funding file - fund 7700, index code 9739
Note: The vision plans have no employer contribution so index 9839 will be removed as a valid value from the STARS funding file pre-edit program.

Regents institutions are responsible for ensuring these changes are reflected in their individual systems, effective with the January 4, 2002 check issue date. Note: there are no changes to the DA175-176 files.
