Welcome to Open Enrollment
Open enrollment is the time for selecting your health coverage. As you consider the best health plan for you, choose one that provides access to quality and affordable care that is designed to keep you and your budget healthy and happy, while supporting your ongoing health and well-being.
2022 Open Enrollment
Coverage starting January 1, 2022
During open enrollment (November 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022) you have the opportunity to change your coverage options, such as adding or removing dependents, and adding, dropping, or changing plans. We encourage you to take time to learn about your benefit options to help manage both your health and your health care costs, as well as ensuring that your covered eligible dependents have the necessary coverage for the coming year.
Note: The deadline to enroll for coverage starting January 1, 2022 is December 31, 2021.
2021 Special Enrollment
Coverage starting December 1, 2021
If you have experienced a qualifying life event you may be eligible for special enrollment into a health plan – one outside of the usual open enrollment period. Examples of qualifying life events are loss of employer-sponsored coverage, a recent move, being newly married, and having a baby. This special enrollment period lasts 60 days from the date of the qualifying life event. When enrolling for coverage, you will need to provide the qualifying life event and the date of the event.
Note: If 60 days pass and you do not sign up for health coverage, you will have to wait until the next open enrollment period.
