State Employee Health Plan

Health Center


About Your Benefits

The State Employee Health Plan (SEHP) has contracted with Marathon Health to operate the HealthQuest Health Center in Topeka. Marathon Health ensures the privacy and confidentiality of individual information at all times. The same rules that protect an individual's privacy at a local physician's office protect your information at the health center.

The Center is open to all employees, spouses and dependent children over age 2 covered by SEHP medical insurance. SEHP members will need to make an appointment and bring their insurance card to prove eligibility for service.

All preventive visits are provided free of cost regardless of health plan enrollment. Healthcare services are provided at no cost for Plan A members. Medical visits will require a $40 fee for members with Plans C, J, and N
