Human Resources




Notice to All Faculty and Staff:

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield has sent out a notification to all employees covered under Murray State’s health insurance in 2014 stating that coverage has been terminated. This letter was triggered by a system upgrade from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield; this was in no way related to Murray State or our online enrollment system. Anthem is promptly sending out a correction to all enrollees; please disregard the termination letter if you have elected benefits. Murray State has verified Anthem has enrolled all members through their new system for 2015. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact Human Resources at (270) 809-2146.
