Open Enrollment for 2018 benefits begins Oct. 2 and closes Oct. 27 at 5 p.m.
Enrollment is mandatory, meaning that all full-time equivalent employees must elect or decline coverage for 2018. This includes coverage for health, dental, legal, identity theft protection, flexible spending for health care and dependent car, and health savings account benefits.
“It’s important for everyone to review their benefits annually to ensure they are in the right plan for themselves and their family,” said Lauren Heath, benefits coordinator with the Consolidated Benefits Office (CBO). “Since benefits do not automatically roll over we are asking everyone to actively go in and elect or decline their benefits.”
As in past years, CBO is also providing “Early Bird” incentives. If you elect or decline your benefits by Oct. 15 you will receive two Regal Cinema movie tickets and will be entered into a drawing where five lucky winners will receive a $100 gift card to Top Golf; 1,000 points for BEWell; and an Echo Dot and Echo Show.
A 2018 Open Enrollment Guide, complete with premiums, plan changes for 2018, event information and everything you need to know about open enrollment, was mailed home to eligible employees. That guide is also posted on the Consolidated Benefits Office (CBO) intranet page.
Beginning Oct. 5, CBO has several enrollment assistance events to help employees. In addition, the CBO will also hold extended office hours Oct. 23-26 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. for anyone who might need assistance.
