Deadline for health insurance open enrollment is Oct. 31

By Human Capital Services

This is the final week to enroll in your health insurance coverage for 2018. All benefit eligible employees who currently have coverage must enroll in health coverage during this open enrollment period or they will be defaulted into Plan N for 2018 coverage. Employees who currently have waived coverage in 2017 will continue to have waived coverage in 2018.

The enrollment period ends Oct. 31 for health, dental and vision insurances and for flexible spending account, Health Savings Account, HSA, or Health Reimbursement Account, HRA, and HealthyKids. Coverage is effective Jan. 1, 2018.

This year, there are five different options for health insurance coverage, along with voluntary benefit plans through Metropolitan Life. Learn more about the 2018 health plan options and see instructions on how to enroll at the Human Capital Services open enrollment webpage.

Your HCS benefits team will continue to update you and provide information during the month of October. Watch your K-State email and K-State Today with more information.
