The annual It's Your Choice open enrollment period for health benefits is September 30-October 25. This is when you can make changes for next year, including switching health plans, coverage levels, or adding/deleting certain dependents, for an effective date of January 1, 2020. Watch for your open enrollment materials, which the Department of Employee Trust Funds will distribute in a few weeks. Additional information will also be available on our website.
In the meantime, consider attending a benefits fair—we’ve scheduled more than 40 in locations statewide from mid-September to the end of the open enrollment period. At a benefits fair, you can pick up literature and ask questions of ETF specialists, health plan and dental plan representatives, wellness program coordinators, and others associated with the group health insurance program. To find a benefits fair near you, see the Events listing on our website or call us at 1-877-533-5020.
