Can I make changes to my benefits during the year?
Generally, after you make your elections for medical, dental, vision, FSAs, and voluntary life insurance, you can only change them again during open enrollment. However, if you experience a qualifying event during the year, please notify HR as soon as possible. You may be eligible to change certain benefit plan elections within thirty-one (31) days of the event. Qualifying events may include marriage, divorce, birth, adoption, or death of a spouse or dependent.
What is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?
A Health Savings Account is a special tax-advantaged savings account available to people who enrolled in a Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP). You must be actively enrolled in a CDHP in order to contribute to your HSA. Once you are no longer enrolled in a CDHP, you can maintain your HSA and continue to use the money on medical expenses, but you can no longer make contributions to the account.
