Calendar Year 2011 Annual Enrollment Highlights

  • Enrollment Is Open This Year
  • This year's enrollment is open to all benefits-eligible employees and dependents. The Annual Enrollment Transfer/Open Enrollment Period runs from September 15 to October 15, with coverage effective on January 1, 2011.
  • Current members:
  • You must select a health insurance option, an insurance carrier and a premium level (tier) for 2011. Otherwise, you (and your currently covered dependents) will be enrolled in the Standard PPO, with coverage provided through your region's (East, Middle or West) lowest cost carrier. You should receive your Enrollment Kit by mail in early September.
  • Benefits-eligible employees who are not currently enrolled in a State-sponsored health insurance option
  • You have the opportunity to enroll for benefits this year. You can enroll in a health insurance option and some other benefits (e.g., dental coverage) offered through the State plans. If you are interested, you can request an Enrollment Kit in early September from the Partners for Health website. There will be an additional monthly late applicant fee in addition to the regular monthly premium for adults applying through open enrollment. More about the late applicant fee can be found here.
  • Dependent Eligibility
  • The new health reform law extends coverage to your dependent children under age 26. You can enroll them during the open enrollment period, with coverage effective January 1, 2011. There are special rules that apply to dependent children. No additional late applicant fee is required.
