About Pre-65 Open Enrollment
Open Enrollment is the time when Pre-65 retirees can make changes to their Medical and Dental plans for themselves and their enrolled pre-65 dependents. It begins Wednesday, May 8 and ends Friday, May 24, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. with plan changes effective July 1, 2019. If you do not make changes at this time, you will have to wait until you experience a qualifying change in status event.
Action is not required on your part to continue any of your coverage. However, we recommend you contact the Bursar’s Office at 505.277.5363 to ensure your Automatic Bill Payment is set up correctly to allow for July 1, 2019 premium increases.
Packets containing an Open Enrollment Guide and an Open Enrollment Form with Instructions were mailed to all Pre-65 eligible retirees at the beginning of May. If you did not recevie your packet, need assistance making changes to your benefits, need to update your address on file, or if you have questions, call 505.277.MyHR (6947).
