Open enrollment is your annual opportunity to enroll in, cancel, or make changes to your medical, dental, vision, life, accidental death and dismemberment, and disability plans, and enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Additionally, for those eligible or participating in the VEBA, this is your opportunity to assess your options.
Open Enrollment begins April 20 and ends May 6 at 11:59 p.m. with plan changes effective July 1. After Open Enrollment ends, you cannot make mid-year changes unless you experience a qualifying change in status event, or wait until the next Open Enrollment..
The following changes are effective for the upcoming Fiscal Year, July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023 (FY23).
Review each plan you participate in below. Action is not required on your part if you do not want to make changes to your existing medical, dental, vision, disability, life, or AD&D coverage, unless you want to enroll in an FSA. If you are currently enrolled in an FSA, you must re-enroll for July 1 – June 30!
