State employees must take action to keep healthcare

After a competitive request for proposal (RFP) process, the State of Colorado will offer new healthcare and dental plans starting July 1, 2015. This means that all state employees must go through the active enrollment process in order to be covered in the new fiscal year.

2015-mandatory-open-enrollmentThe state’s 2015 Open Enrollment runs until May 14 and every state employee needs to take action to remain covered in FY 2015/2016.

Here are your options during the 2015 Open Enrollment period:

  • Re-enroll in your current plan
  • Enroll in a new plan
  • Add or drop covered dependents
  • Sign up (or re-enroll) for a Flexible Spending Account
  • Get optional life insurance without having to provide evidence of insurability (EOI)
  • Discontinue State of Colorado coverage

Please remember that after May 14, 2015, you cannot make any changes to your benefits until next year.

The only exception would be if you have what’s called a qualifying life event like marriage, birth, or adoption. If you do not enroll in State of Colorado benefits, you will be dropped and you will not have coverage in FY 2015-16.
