Health and Flexible Benefits Open Enrollment Ends May 16

Did you know…

  • If you take no action during Open Enrollment, you will remain in the same health plan, membership, or waived status and will not have a Flexible Reimbursement Account.
  • You can save out-of-pocket health care and/or child and elder care costs by enrolling in a Flexible Reimbursement Account.
  • You must enroll in a Flexible Reimbursement Account each plan year; Flex Accounts do not automatically roll over.
  • You may now cover eligible dependent children through the end of the year in which they turn age 26.
  • If your eligible child is on extended coverage, he/she will not automatically be enrolled in your health plan. You must add your child during Open Enrollment.
  • Many of the rules related to dependent eligibility no longer apply?
