Prepare yourself for one of the most important decisions you will make this year—your benefit elections for 2017. You can review the Open Enrollment Guide now. The guide contains important dates, rates and information every County employee needs to know in order to make informed choices when selecting medical, dental, vision and supplemental health insurance plans during the annual enrollment period.
Open Enrollment starts Monday, Oct. 3 and closes at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27.
You will need to participate in Open Enrollment only if you want to continue to waive medical coverage, enroll in new plans, change your current benefit coverage, add or remove dependents, or participate in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA).
Once you have read the Open Enrollment Guide, you can take a refresher on how to log in to the Open Enrollment eBenefits system and hear how to navigate the eBenefits page by taking an LMS training.
In addition, the Department of Human Resources has a comprehensive Open Enrollment website that you can access anywhere. Look over plan information, rates, and more—all from the comfort of your home.
Do your homework now! These will be your elections for the entire 2017 year.
