Active Employee Open Enrollment 2017

Posted on Mar 1, 2017 in . .

The Open Enrollment period for Active Employee Health and Life insurance plans will be from April 3, 2017 through May 12, 2017.  Now is the time when you should stop and think about health coverage for yourself and your family and determine which plans will best meet your needs for the new plan year (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018).  Open enrollment is your only opportunity to make changes to your health plan enrollment without experiencing a qualifying event.

During open enrollment, you can:

  • Add a plan, change from one plan to another, or drop a plan
  • Add an eligible dependent or drop a dependent
  • Change coverage tiers such as changing from single to family or family to 2-party
