December – Stress Free Holidays
Surviving the Holidays – Holiday Webinar is December 2
The holidays bring lots of joy, festivities and family, and shopping, and overdue bills and they are all rapidly approaching, are you ready? No? Well, take a deep breath. We know just how stressful the holidays can be because we've all been there, and sometimes, we could all just use a little help. That's why CMS is partnering with Magellan to bring you a "Surviving the Holidays" webinar presented by a certified counselor on December 2, 2019, from 12-1 PM CT.
This webinar will be chock full of tips and practices to cope through grief or divorce, helping to set up a budget and learning the fine art of 'thrift-giving,' overcoming anxiety, overindulgences and other stressors often associated with the holidays. It is also free to all State of Illinois employees.
Mark your calendars and join us on Dec. 2 at noon, right here:

Members who enroll in the Local Government Health Plan (LGHP) receive health, prescription, dental, vision and behavioral health benefits. Dependents can be enrolled in the program at an additional cost and will have the same health plan and benefits as the member.
The health, dental, vision and prescription benefits offered to LGHP participants are administered by various plan administrators. Members interested in changing their coverage elections may do so upon experiencing an eligible qualifying change in status and should contact their Health Plan Representative (HPR) for more information.
All available benefit plans and programs are explained in detail in the Member Handbook and Benefit Choice Options Booklet. Also included are amendments that update the handbook and a summary document indicating the benefit levels of the Local Care Health Plan (LCHP).
