Open Enrollment is the most wonderful time of the year. It is your annual opportunity to make certain changes to your insurance benefits to ensure they meet your needs. This year, Open Enrollment, is October 31 to November 20, 2019.
The elections you have in place at the end of Open Enrollment will be effective for the 2020 plan year, beginning January 1, 2020. If you don’t make changes, all your coverages will continue as currently elected, except for your pretax accounts. Pretax elections must be made each year. These include the Medical/Dental Expense Account (MDEA), Dependent Care (Daycare) Expense Account (DCEA), and Transit Expense Accounts (TEA, which includes both the Bus Pass/Vanpool Expense Account and the Parking Expense Account).
Not all benefits are available during every Open Enrollment. While medical coverage is offered each year, dental coverage is typically open every other year. Dental is open this year but is not expected to be offered next year. Please keep in mind dental is a 24-month election.
We offer a variety of ways for you to learn about the benefits offered this year:
