Why should you complete Open Enrollment?

Save the Date Open Enrollment for 2020 benefits Oct. 17-31

Vanderbilt’s annual Open Enrollment is a great time to review your benefit elections and reevaluate if last year’s elections are still a good fit for you and your family.

Open Enrollment gives you a chance to change health insurance and other insurance coverage, or opt in to programs such as a flexible spending account, which can save you money.

If you do not actively enroll during Open Enrollment:

  • you will be defaulted into the Choice CDHP;
  • you also will pay the $100 spousal fee, if married, and elected family coverage in 2019; and
  • you will not receive the $20 monthly tobacco-free premium discount.

You can only select your 2020 benefits during Open Enrollment or within 30 days of a qualifying event (such as getting married or having a baby).
