OPEN ENROLLMENT TIME OF THE YEAR
Open enrollment for employee healthcare will begin on July 28, 2017 and will end on August 27, 2017. During this time, you may enroll in medical, dental and vision. This plan will cover all eligible employees from September 01, 2017 through August 30, 2018. The 2017 Benefit Plan Open Enrollment Period is your annual opportunity to review and make changes to your benefits. During Open Enrollment, you can:
- Enroll in or change your current health plan(s)
- Speak directly with representatives from health care plans during Open Enrollment events
- Renew or enroll your waiver of medical coverage
- Add or remove eligible dependents to your medical/dental/vision plan
Open Enrollment is important, because the only other time you can make changes to your benefits is due to a qualifying life event, such as marriage, divorce, birth/adoption of a child, change of dependent eligibility, or change in employment status. If you are adding a new dependent during open enrollment or after a qualifying event during the year, you will be required to provide proof of your dependent’s eligibility (i.e., a marriage/domestic partner registration certificate, birth certificate for children under age 26). All added dependents will require a Social Security number in accordance with District policy.
