Open enrollment Period:
April 01, 2021- April 30, 2021
Open enrollment occurs during the month of April and is your annual opportunity to add or change medical, dental and/or vision plans. This is also your time to add or drop eligible dependents from coverage. The only other opportunity you have to make these changes is when you experience a qualifying life event such as a birth or adoption of a child, marriage, divorce, loss of coverage, etc.
All changes will be effective

For those of you planning retirement, our group requires enrollment in our health insurance plan at the time of retirement in order to continue that coverage into retirement. If you are presently covered by your spouse’s health insurance but will need health insurance in retirement, you should enroll during an open enrollment period prior to your retirement.
In addition, a reminder for those nearing age 65 – if eligible, you and/or your spouse should sign up for Medicare Part A while you are an active employee; you should defer your enrollment in Medicare Part B and then enroll when you retire (to prevent any late enrollment penalty). Massachusetts law requires that, if you are eligible for free Medicare Part A, you must sign up for Medicare Part B.
