Take time to review your benefits during open enrollment

October 3, 2017

Open enrollment for state insurance began Oct. 1, 2017, and will run through Oct 31, 2017. The Office of Human Resources (OHR) offers you key support throughout open enrollment. Throughout October, you can make changes to your state insurance package and enroll or re-enroll in a medical spending account (MSA) and/or dependent care spending account (DCSA). Important: Re-enrollment into the MSA and DCSA for 2018 is not automatic. Enrollment changes take effect Jan. 1, 2018.
