Membership Administration Portal (MAP)

Employees use the SEHP Membership Administration Portal (MAP) to enroll in health plans and make changes. Access MAP from the link on the PSU HRS webpage (se below). You will use your PSU SSO credentials to log into MAP with this link. Do not use the MAP link on the SEHP web site. 

How to Log Into MAP

  • Click on Health Insurance Membership Administration Portal (MAP) located on the main menu on the left side of the HRS Homepage - http://www.pittstate.edu/office/hr/.  Select Pittsburg State University from the drop down menu and click “Select”.
  • Enter your PSU Username and Password and click the “Sign In” button.  The PSU Username and Password are also referred to as your Active Directory or Single Sign On (SSO) credentials. The PSU Username is usually the first part of your email address (before the @pittstate.edu).  If you do not know your PSU Username and Password or have problems logging into MAP with your SSO credentials, please contact the Gorilla Geeks at Ext. 4600.
  • You will now be in MAP.
  • Click on the “Enrollments & Events” tab at the top of the page; then click on “Launch Enrollment” under “Actions”.
  • You may be asked to update and provide contact information.
  • Follow the screens to make your elections by clicking on the “Save and Continue” button at the bottom of each screen. 
  • Upload appropriate documents (e.g. marriage license for spouse and birth certificate for children) to MAP.  Please note that when adding dependents and/or spouse to coverage, appropriate documentation must be uploaded to MAP – marriage license for spouse and birth certificate for children.  The open enrollment process will not continue until the documents have been uploaded to MAP.
  • NOTE that you cannot complete the open enrollment until the documents have been uploaded to MAP.
  • To complete the enrollment process, review your elections.  If you need to make changes, click on the “Change Your Elections” button.  Click the “Save and Print Confirmation” button when you are satisfied with your elections. Log out of MAP by clicking on the “log out” button in the top right corner of the page.  After you log out, you must close your browser to exit MAP.  If you do not close your browser, you will not be properly logged out of MAP, and your benefits information could be accessed by someone else.
