What is an “open enrollment period”?

Employers that offer more than one health plan will allow employees to switch their coverage between plans only during one time of the year, typically one month in the fall or early winter. This is called open enrollment.

At this time, you have the opportunity to change plans if you are unhappy in any way with your current health plan. Although you will probably be notified of the open enrollment by your office benefits coordinator, you may want to ask in advance so you will have time to compare the plans available to you.
