Open Enrollment 2011 begins Nov. 1

PULLMAN – The 2011 Open Enrollment period for for insurance and benefits begins Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30.
Open Enrollment is the one time each year when you can make changes to your medical and/or dental plans or add an eligible family member to your coverage. This is also the time to enroll in the Flexible Spending Account and/or Dependent Care Assistance Programs. Enrollment changes become effective Jan. 1, 2011.
If you do not want to make a 2011 change in your medical/dental plans, you need do nothing and your current plan will continue. However, Aetna and Kaiser Permanente Value participants will need to make a change, since those plans will not be available in 2011.
Other 2011 plan year changes include: premium changes, children coverage until age 26, and changes in over-the counter benefits with FSA. For more information regarding these changes, visit the HRS Open Enrollment website
