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 contains 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 (enrolled in Part A or Parts A & B), 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).

This contribution will be fully funded on the first business day of the year. Remember, the employer contribution should be counted towards your annual contribution limit.

*If you are 55 or older, you are eligible to contribute an additional $1,000 above the regular limits (called a catch-up contribution).
Prescription Drug Plan - Anthem Home Delivery Choice (new for 2017!)
For the 2017 plan year, the Kentucky Conference will offer Anthem Home Delivery Choice to members enrolled in both the HDHP and PPO plans. Home Delivery Choice offers members a convenient and safe way to get the medicines they take on a regular basis for a long period of time. It is covered under your health plan at no extra cost. In many cases, members save on drug costs with home delivery since 90-day supplies cost less than 30-day supplies at a retail pharmacy.
