Good afternoon members,
We wanted to remind you that we are currently in the annual open enrollment period for insurance and will be through September 15, 2021. This open enrollment period is only for the OEBB administered benefits: medical, dental, vision, voluntary life, AD&D, and long-term care. (Section 125 open enrollment will come later in 2021.)
ACTION REQUIRED: All benefits-eligible employees must log in and make their plan selections for the 2021-22 insurance year, as the current medical, dental, and vision enrollment choices will not carry forward automatically. Below are key dates to remember and important information to consider.
September 15 – Open Enrollment Ends. If you do not login and make changes, your current 2020-21 elections will NOT carry forward into the 2021-22 insurance year.
Opting Out of Insurance / Stipend: If you currently opt-out of insurance for the stipend, you will need to opt-out once again and verify your insurance for the upcoming year.
October 1 – Your benefit enrollments are effective under the new plans.
October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022 is the insurance plan year.
LANE COMMUNITY COLLEGE: Open Enrollment Web Page – A web page specifically dedicated to providing open enrollment information has been created and will be maintained throughout the enrollment process. This web page will include links to the rate chart, benefit plan summaries, plan comparisons, and much more. (https://www.lanecc.edu/hr/benefits/open-enrollment)
OEBB Website: OEBB maintains a broad range of tools and resources, including recorded webinars, videos, tutorials, and more on their website (https://www.oregon.gov/oha/oebb/Pages/index.aspx). This, too, can be very helpful when looking for general information, as well as for navigating the online enrollment system.
