The Kentucky Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits has a partnership with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield as our claims administrator.
This page has information related to the two Active Member health plans that the Kentucky Conference currently offers. Anthem’s Lumenos High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is for active employees who are under age 65 or otherwise not Medicare eligible. Each participant in this plan also receives a Health Savings Account (HSA) that is administered by Mellon Bank (BenefitWallet). Anthem’s Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Health Plan is for employees who are active and Medicare eligible, or non-Medicare eligible dependents of Medicare retired employees.
Eligibility: All full-time and part-time clergy (elders, deacons, and local pastors), full-time diaconal ministers and full-time lay employees are eligible to enroll in the Conference Health Plan (2015 Conference Journal p. 376).
