Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment
Open Enrollment (OE) is the time for you to review whether the health coverage you have for yourself and your family continues to best meet your needs. The OE election period is April 3 – May 12, 2023.
During the OE election period, you can:

  • Add a plan, change from one plan to another, or drop a plan
  • Add an eligible dependent or remove a dependent
  • Change coverage tiers, such as changing from Self to Family or Family to Two-Party
If you decide to keep your current plans, you don’t need to take action. You are not required to complete any forms to continue your current coverage.
If you are making changes, complete and submit the EC-1 (or EC-1H for those enrolled in HSTA VB benefit plans) enrollment form and required supporting documents to your employer’s open enrollment designee by May 12, 2023. The EUTF will not contact you regarding outstanding supporting documents and late submissions will not be accepted.
For more information, please review the 2023 Employee Health Benefits Reference Guide.
