HealthFlex is the insurance plan of the South Georgia Conference. It is mandatory for full-time clergy under age 65. We also offer coverage for clergy spouses and families (at the clergy person's expense).
Open Enrollment for 2023 coverage will be Nov 02-Nov 17, 2022

This year, Wespath has a helpful website dedicated to annual election. Go to HealthFlex Annual Election made simple!
REMEMBER: Clergy no longer report their health insurance election on their compensation form. Clergy are responsible for providing a copy of their health insurance elections to their payroll person, so that appropriate funds can be withheld, if needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Most of our pastors are paying for more health insurance than they need. The same funds could be going into an Health Reimbursement Account or Health Savings Account for the pastor. PLEASE use the "Alex" helper before deciding which coverage to purchase.

Covered clergy have a monthly $1,081 "premium contribution" with which to purchase insurance. They may choose to purchase additional coverage at their own expense.
NEW THIS YEAR: The Conference Board of Pensions will offer a rebate on HealthFlex to clergy families for the very first time in 2023. Clergy with “single plus one” coverage will receive $125/month in premium rebates, while clergy with “family” coverage will receive $200/month in premium rebates in 2023. These amounts, combined with the subsidy to churches, will provide some small premium relief to clergy with this coverage.

Pastors should know that if they participate in the Conference HealthFlex plan, they and their family ARE NOT ELIGIBLE for subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. The cost of our insurance is defined as "affordable" under the ACA rules, even though it is only for the pastor; even if the family is not on HealthFlex, clergy families are not eligible for ACA subsidies.
