Open Enrollment is an annuitant's only opportunity to add/remove dependents from their health care coverage without experiencing a qualified life event. Enrolled annuitants will receive a communication via email or US mail. A sample communication is provided for reference. Included in the communication will be the Medicare Notice of Creditable Coverage as well.
- Any changes made during Open Enrollment will be effective July 1 , 2023.
- No action is necessary to continue coverage beyond July 1, 2023.
Annuitants that may have been enrolled in 2019 with AllClear ID for credit monitoring services may receive an email from AllClear ID announcing that Experian will be providing the services in 2020.
