What is open enrollment?

Open enrollment is a window of time during which employers allow employees to select health care, vision, dental, and other benefits. It happens annually and generally runs for a few weeks. While open enrollment used to occur primarily in October or November, many employers now offer it at other times of the year.

During open enrollment, your employer may allow you to check one box to roll over the previous year’s coverage, or you may be required to actively select all of the coverage you want to keep, change, or drop. It’s always a good idea to review your plan options for each type of coverage to see what’s changed in your plan since last year. Premiums, deductibles, co-pays and network coverage can shift from year to year and it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting and what the cost is.

Vision care is typically one of the quickest and least expensive benefit options to review and select. Take care of your eyes and overall health simply by checking the box. When you enroll in VSP, you’ll save money, stay healthy, and look great.
