    What is Open Enrollment?

     
    Open Enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity to make benefit changes for you and/or your eligible family members. This is your chance to enroll in your 2019 benefits whether you are adding, deleting, or changing plans. We encourage you to give careful thought to your needs prior to making any decisions.
     
    The benefits you elect during Open Enrollment will be effective January 1, 2019, and will remain in effect through December 31, 2019, unless you experience a qualifying life event that would allow you to make a mid-year change.

    There are three enrollment options:

     
    1. Roll Benefits (available October 8 through midnight November 2) 
     
    2. Enroller Assisted(face-to-face or telephonic) (available October 15 through October 26)
     
    Scheduling Instructions and Enrollment Schedule: Instructions to schedule a face-to-face or telephonic appointment with a licensed enroller and to view the enrollment schedule.
     
    Enrollment is also available during the Benefits & Financial Wellness Fairs (no appointment required).

    Forms
     

    Evidence of Insurability (EOI) is an application process in which you provide information on the condition of your health or your dependent’s health to get insurance coverage.

    EOI may be required if:

    • you apply for an amount of insurance coverage higher than the guaranteed issue amount;
    • you are currently enrolled and want to increase coverage; or
    • you were declined coverage during your initial eligibility period and then want coverage at a later date.
     
    The completed EOI application requires review and approval before coverage becomes effective.

    Completion of the EOI form does not guarantee approval of coverage.

     

    Please submit this form to The Standard no later than Friday, November 9, 2018.
