Fall 2018 Open Enrollment Meeting:
Thursday, October 11, 2018
Please plan to attend the meeting to get details on new plan benefits and have the opportunity to ask questions.
Open Enrollment is a period of time, usually occurring once per year, when employees of companies and organizations may make changes to their elected health insurance benefit options. The term also applies to the annual period during which individuals may buy individual health insurance plans through the online, state-based health insurance exchanges established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Individuals usually can make changes to their health insurance benefits only during the open enrollment period or when they have experienced a specific qualifying event.
During this time period, an employer will typically communicate to all eligible employees what options they have for their benefit program. Often the vendors or insurance providers will be present to explain the details of their products. This can be done either with group presentations, benefit fairs or meetings one on one with each employee. As travel expenses continue to rise many vendors and insurance providers have turned to using independent “contract enrollers” to do the communication on their behalf. That’s where PIAG defers from the rest. We provide this benefit to our clients by conducting benefit enrollment services.
