Your guide to Open Season

You may hear people talking about Open Season and are wondering, "What is it and what do I need to do?" Open Season is your opportunity to make changes to your health plan, dental plan, vision plan and reenroll or open an FSA (Flexible Spending Account).

Health Benefits

Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program is one of the most valuable benefits of federal employment. However, coverage is not automatic – you must enroll to be covered. If you are currently enrolled in a FEHB plan, and do nothing, your coverage will automatically continue with your existing plan provider. Even though you're not switching, be sure to research information about your plan as providers, benefits and rates may change. If you wish to enroll, change or cancel your coverage, you will need to complete the enrollment process. 

More information to help you choose and enroll can be found here:

Dental and Vision Benefits 

The Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) allows dental and vision benefits to be purchased on a group basis. If you are currently enrolled in a FEDVIP plan and do nothing, your coverage will automatically continue with your existing plan provider. Even though you're not switching, be sure to research information about your plan as providers, benefits and rates may change. If you wish to enroll, change or cancel your coverage, you will need to complete the enrollment process through BENEFEDS.

Flexible Spending Accounts 

The Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS) allows you to pay for certain health and dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. Unlike other programs, you must reenroll in FSAFEDS each year to participate. Enrollments do not automatically continue. To learn more visit the FSAFEDS website.
