2022 OPEN ENROLLMENT IS NOW! OPEN ENROLLMENT WILL RUN FROM OCTOBER 1 TO OCTOBER 31, 2021 FOR CHANGES TO TAKE EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2022.
Each year our medical, dental and vision insurance carriers provide a time period when employees are invited to change their enrollment status without having to meet the criteria of a Qualifying Event. This time period is called “open enrollment.” This year, open enrollment will run from October 1 until October 31, 2021 for changes to take effect January 1, 2022.
