Open Enrollment 2017

Greetings and Salutations!  Open Enrollment for Maryland State employee and retiree health benefits starts TOMORROW: October 13th!  

Open Enrollment will run from October 13th until midnight on November 15th.

Open Enrollment packets for employees have been distributed by the agencies and retiree and direct pay packets have been mailed to your homes.

Important Reminder for Retirees and Direct Pay/COBRA participants:  If you want your current benefits to continue for 2017, you do not have to do anything! Your coverage elections will roll over on January 1, 2017 and continue for the rest of the year.

Important Reminder for Active Employees:  If you want your current benefits to continue for 2017, you do not have to do anything! Your coverage elections will roll over on January 1, 2017 and continue for the rest of the year.​  EXCEPT FOR FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT (FSA) enrollment.  If you are enrolled in either the healthcare or dependent daycare FSA plans and wish to continue that plan for 2017, YOU MUST CALL THE IVR AND RE-ENROLL.  These plans do not automatically roll over to the next plan year.

If you need to make changes to your benefit elections, please refer to the instruction sheet found in your Open Enrollment packet.  

Also included in your Open Enrollment packet are 2017 rates, the new benefits guide, and the 2017 wellness activities!
