It’s Open Enrollment season—your once-a-year opportunity to make changes to your benefits. This is when you can add, delete, or change your health plans, as well as add or delete eligible dependents to your coverage. The only other time you can make such changes is during a qualified life event like marriage, divorce, or your child reaching age 26 and no longer being eligible for coverage.
This year’s Open Enrollment period is May 3–28, 2021. Changes you make during
Open Enrollment will be effective July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.
