The Time Is Now. Enroll, Make Changes…It’s the Annual Benefit Enrollment Period for 2014!
To Employees eligible for benefits:
The Annual Benefit Enrollment Period begins on October 7, 2013 and ends on November 1, 2013. This is your annual opportunity to evaluate your benefits, review upcoming program changes, determine your coverage needs for next year, and make appropriate benefits changes. This is the only time during the year when you are eligible to make benefit plan changes unless you have a life event (e.g. marriage, birth, divorce...) or a change in employment that allows you to change your benefits. By understanding your benefit options, you can get the most out of them. All changes made during this period take effect on January 1, 2014.
Dental Benefit Changes To Be Aware Of For 2014
Starting in 2014 all health insurance plans will offer Uniform Dental Benefits. This means the dental benefit you have in 2013 will change in 2014. Some health plans will lose some of their dental coverage while others will gain benefits. More information...
