If you did not elect health insurance coverage when you were hired, or you want coverage different than what you have now, you can make a change during the Benefits Open Season. You may also be able to make a change to your enrollment in conjunction with a qualifying life event such as marriage, divorce, or birth of a child.
The Benefits Open Season begins the Monday of the second full work week in November and continues through the Monday of the second full work week in December. During the Benefits Open Season, you can elect health insurance, if not currently enrolled; change plans or options, if currently enrolled; or cancel enrollment.
If you have a qualifying life event, you may be able to enroll, cancel your enrollment, or change from one plan or option to another depending upon the qualifying life event.
