City & School Employees: 2022 Annual Enrollment is OPEN

Annual Enrollment Dates: May 1st to 31st

  • Don't forget - dental coverage comes in 2 tiers for current employees

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

  • BCBS Members: All employees enrolled in a BCBS health plan will be receiving new member id cards this summer regardless of whether you make any changes to your coverage.
