2021 Annual Enrollment is OPEN

Annual Enrollment Dates: May 1st to 31st

Now is the time to make any necessary changes to your health & dental benefits!

  • Do you need to add a dependent to your coverage?

    Have you recently been married or welcomed a baby? If you didn't add a new spouse to your health or dental plan within 30 days of the marriage - now is the time. Newborns are almost always added to health plans at birth, but not necessarily to dental plans. Annual enrollment is the only time of year you're allowed to add a dependent to your coverage without a qualifying event.
  • Don't forget - dental coverage comes in 2 tiers for current employees

    Now is the time to switch from the low (basic) option to the high (enhanced) option - or vice versa!
  • All changes, enrollments & cancellations will be effective July 1st
