Annual Enrollment Continues

If you plan to enroll in the Consumer Directed Health Plan (CDHP) with HRA or the Enhanced 80/20 PPO Plan for the 2015 plan year. If you fail to complete the wellness incentives, you will remain in your current plan but your premiums will be more expensive.

Completing the wellness incentives are required even if you completed them for the 2015 Health Plan year. The Wellness Incentive Credits are:

  • Complete a Health Assessment
  • Select a Primary Care Provider (PCP) for all covered dependents & watch a video to learn more about Patient-Centered Medical Homes
  • Attest to not smoking or commit to a smoking cessation program — must be attested to every year for employee and spouse (if applicable)

Visit for screen shots and how- to videos of the enrollment process. There is also a guide for completing your Health Assessment included on that page. To complete your enrollment, access the eEnroll site via (click Self Service) or call 855-859-0966 to complete your wellness incentives and to re-enroll in your NCFlex benefit plans. Be sure to print your subscriber summary report and health assessment confirmation to confirm your elections.

The State Health Plan of North Carolina is aware that there are issues with the eEnroll platform. Specifically, there is a known delay in the wellness credits showing as applied to your 2016 premium. The Benefits Office does not expect this to be corrected prior to the conclusion of annual enrollment, which is why it is extremely important that you print screen shots of your wellness credit activities.

If you have questions, please call the OHR Benefits Office at: 919- 962-3071 or email

Peyton Lombardi

Pictured here with her manager, Kim Leadon, Mrs. Lombardi has been described as extremely diligent in making sure that all 640 students enrolled in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy have met their many requirements in a timely fashion for their rotations in the

field. At the same time, she maintains contact with all rotation sites to ensure that site requirements are clearly understood between both parties so that she is able to enforce the needs of the sites with the

students. Peyton has a reputation of treating all students and partners in the field with great respect, courtesy and patience. She rightfully prides herself on her thoroughness and accuracy. She has very high standards for herself, is a very dedicated worker and is committed to giving her absolute best to the Eshelman School of Pharmacy.

Congratulations Peyton!
