Open Enrolment

Open enrolment is your annual opportunity to update your benefits coverage for the next plan (calendar) year. Open enrolment is also the one opportunity each year where you can allocate flex credits to a Health Spending Account (HSA) for the upcoming year, should you wish to do so.

This year, open enrolment runs from Oct 23 to Nov 8, 2017. Any updates you make during open enrolment will come into effect on Jan 1, 2018 and will remain in effect until you update your coverage during the next open enrolment or as a result of an eligible life event.

If you want to update your benefits coverage and/or allocate credits to an HSA you must complete open enrolment.

New for Plan Year 2018

The following changes to the Flexible Benefits Program come into effect on Jan 1, 2018:

  • MSP premiums have been reduced by 50% to $37.50/month for employee only and $75/month for an employee and their spouse. The flex credits will be adjusted accordingly. No premiums for children under the age of 19 or children ages 19-24 who are still attending school full-time will continue. MSP is paid by the employer and is a taxable benefit.
