Open Season Reminder

Cadillac Plan TaxI just wanted to remind you that Open Season— the annual opportunity for federal employees to make any desired changes to their health, dental, and vision insurance for 2017, and to establish flexible spending accounts— starts today, November 14, and will run through December 12th, 2016.

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has now posted Open Season information, including plan brochures, rates, and changes for 2017, on its website.

I also wanted to specifically highlight a new feature added this year by OPM — a more robust tool for comparing and evaluating Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program insurance plans.

Any employees wishing to make benefit changes do so via their agency, while retirees need to contact OPM.
