Graphic that says Open Enrollment and Deadline November 16.Open Enrollment is the time frame during which all benefit eligible employees  must either enroll or waive health, vision, dental, and flexible spending benefits for the benefit year January 1-December 31, 2019.  Open Enrollment for 2019 Benefits is NOW through November 16, 2018.  Great news for 2019- NO increase in medical, vision, or dental rates!

The Open Enrollment website
is now open.  If you are Wellness Compliant, you will see all rates when you sign into the enrollment system.  If you are not Wellness Compliant, you will only see non-compliant rates. If you have a question about the rates you are viewing, call 540-853-2502.

You will also receive an Open Enrollment packet at your location. If you are eligible for benefits and do not receive your packet by Monday, November 5, please contact Human Resources at 540-853-2502.  Information meetings will be held with Human Resources, UnitedHealthcare, and Express Scripts representatives.  The schedule is located on the second page of the bright green Open Enrollment Overview in your paper packet.  The first session is scheduled for Thursday, November 8th at 4:00 p.m. in the Addison Middle School Cafeteria. Attendance at a session is not mandatory; however, employees are strongly encouraged to attend. You may select the date, time and location that is most convenient for you. 

Updates for 2019
