Open Enrollment is from October 1 through November 30, 2021
If you participate in the Health & Welfare Fund, Open Enrollment is your chance to change your dental election only (explained below). Note: If you participate in the Pensioners and Surviving Spouses Health Fund, Open Enrollment applies to both dental and vision elections.
Health & Welfare Fund: Dental Open Enrollment Only
Active participants may change existing dental coverage during Open Enrollment for changes effective January 1, 2022. If you don’t respond, your current dental election will continue as is. You don’t need to re-enroll. However, if you are eligible for dental coverage and did not yet enroll, you may do so at any time (see Dental Plan Reminder below).
Making Dental Plan Changes—If you want to change your dental election for next year, download a Dental Enrollment Form or wait for a copy to arrive by mail in October. Send your completed form to the Fund Office before the November 30th deadline for changes beginning January 1, 2022. All changes will apply to you and any covered dependents in the 2022 calendar year.
Vision Plan Reminder—Active participants who did not enroll in Vision Service Plan (VSP) coverage when first eligible may enroll at any time. Download a Vision Enrollment Form or ask the Fund Office for a copy. Vision coverage begins the month following the date your properly completed form is received by the Fund Office. Contact VSP with benefit questions at (800) 877-7195 or visit vsp.com.
