Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment:  MAY 9-May 27, 2016


 
Open enrollment occurs during the month of May and is your annual opportunity to change a medical, dental, life and/or disability plan(s), and add or drop eligible dependents from coverage.  The only other opportunity you have to make these changes is when you experience a qualifying life event such as a birth or adoption of a child, marriage, divorce, death etc.      If you are currently enrolled in a plan listed above and do not want to make any changes, you do not need to take any action. Your plan(s) will automatically be switched to the new changes on July 1st.  
 
If you choose to change any part of your coverage, you must do so during the Open Enrollment Period. You NEED to re-enroll in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for the healthcare and dependent care account.  During this period you may: 

  • Enroll yourself and dependent(s) in a medical and/or dental coverage
  • Terminate medical and/or dental coverage for yourself and dependent(s)
  • Change medical coverage, choosing between: Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue
      New England (HMO) and Blue Care Elect (PPO)
