Open Enrollment

What is open enrollment?

Benefits Open Enrollment is the annual period of time that benefits-eligible employees have an opportunity to evaluate their health care needs for the upcoming plan year.  Additionally, employees may add or remove eligible dependents from coverage as appropriate and verify their beneficiaries are up to date.  Dependents added to coverage will require proof of dependent eligibility. Employees with dependents requiring eligibility verification will be contacted by BMI Audit Services.
