Don’t wait to take action during Open Enrollment 2013
Have you completed your annual benefits checkup? If not, don’t wait until the last minute, when traffic on the Open Enrollment website is typically heavy.
Consider taking some time now to take action, well before Open Enrollment closes on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 5 p.m.
During Open Enrollment you can:
- Enroll in a different medical plan. Consider one of UC’s value plans if you want lower premiums.
- Enroll eligible family members in or de-enroll family members who are no longer eligible from your health plans.
- Enroll in the ARAG Legal Plan, which is open this year.
- Enroll or re-enroll in the Health Flexible Spending Account (Health FSA) and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DepCare FSA). Even if you are currently enrolled in these plans, you must re-enroll to participate in 2013.
If you have reviewed the plan changes and premiums for 2013, are satisfied with your current benefit plans and do not plan to enroll or re-enroll in the Health FSA or DepCare FSA, you don’t have to take any Open Enrollment action.
