Making Plan Changes during Open Enrollment

Held in the fall, annual Open Enrollment gives you the opportunity to review available benefit plan options and make any changes you want for the next plan year, which starts Jan. 1 and goes through Dec. 31. Any changes you make remain in effect for the entire calendar year if you pay premiums on time and you remain eligible, unless you make changes because of a QSC event. OPS/variable-hour employees are only able to participate in Open Enrollment if they meet eligibility requirements.
