2022 Open Enrollment Memo

2022 Open Enrollment Memo


Annual enrollment is your opportunity to learn about the 2022 benefits, review your current coverage and choose the best options for you and your family. Please review our 2022 Guidebook and SBC's under Employee Resources.


You have the opportunity to modify your current medical, dental, vision and HSA election(s) or enroll in coverage you previously waived. This is an passive enrollment, which means your current elections will carry over if you do not make an election during open enrollment.


Per Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules, employees enrolled in pre-tax benefit plans may only make

elections or changes to their plans once per year. Because of these rules, your benefit elections will

be binding through December 31, 2022; however, you may make changes to your election if you

experience one or more of the following special circumstances, which are known as “Qualifying

Life Events":

• Marriage

• Birth, adoption or placement for adoption of an eligible child

• Divorce, legal separation or annulment of marriage

• Loss of spouse’s job or change in work status (when coverage is maintained through spouse’s plan)

• A significant change in your or your spouse’s health coverage that is attributable to your spouse’s employment

• Death of spouse or dependent

• Loss of dependent status

• Becoming eligible for Medicare or Medicaid during the year

• Receiving a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO)

These Qualifying Life Events allow you to make plan changes during the year. For any allowable changes, you must inform the Human Resources

Department within 31 calendar days of the event. Benefit changes that are requested due to a ‘change of mind’ cannot be allowed until the next

Open Enrollment period. For additional information concerning plan changes, please contact Human Resources.

How To Enroll

What Do I Need To Do During This PASSIVE Open Enrollment?

You should carefully consider your Open Enrollment decision as this is the only time you are allowed to change your benefit elections without a qualifying life event. Your decisions will remain in effect for the entire plan year (January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022) unless you experience a qualifying life event.

What happens if I do not log onto the ADP Employee Self Service Portal during open enrollment (1/1/2022 effective date)?

  • Medical: your current election will rollover into the new plan year
  • Dental: your current election will rollover into the new plan year
  • Vision: your current election will rollover into the new plan year

You must go to the ADP Employee Self Service Portal to process Open Enrollment changes. All elections must be completed in ADP Self-Service Portal by Wednesday December 1, 2021 to ensure your enrollments are processed as soon as possible for the January 1, 2022 effective date.
