OPEN ENROLLMENT 2023: Medical, Rx, FSA, Dental, Supplemental Life Insurance
Why Open Enrollment is Important: Open enrollment is an eligible employee's annual opportunity to join a District insurance plan, change a plan, leave a plan, or add or remove eligible dependents. Don't miss this small window to make a change! Such changes are prohibited during the rest of the year unless there is a qualifying life event. It is the Employee’s responsibility to notify Human Resources of any “life event/status change” such as marriage, divorce, birth/adoption of child(ren), death of a family member who is covered by district insurance, etc. There is a 30 day window from the date of a “life event” to make changes to your coverage. Changes not made within the 30-day window have to wait until the next open enrollment.
Memos containing open enrollment information are attached below. Please read those documents in their entirety.
There are no changes to the benefit plans from the past few years.
Individual rate sheets showing your contribution share to the premium will be provided by email. Your contribution share is based on your employee group's collective bargaining agreement or policy. If you cannot locate the rate sheet or have any questions, please reach out to Elizabeth Jones at [email protected]
