One week left to complete Open Enrollment

One week left – Complete Open Enrollment by Nov. 15

Don’t miss your opportunity to evaluate your benefit choices and make changes. If you haven’t already done so, make sure the right benefit options are in place for you and your family next year.

If you don’t participate in Open Enrollment, your current elections automatically continue for next year—except your Flexible Spending Accounts and your Benefit Access Fee exemption if you cover a spouse on your medical plan—these must be selected each year.



  • Consider changing medical plans. The Kaiser SmartCare and the KingCare Select plans have lower costs.
  • If you cover a spouse or domestic partner on your medical plan, select the appropriate Benefit Access Fee—or exemption, which resets each year. The Kaiser medical plan has no Benefit Access Fees.
  • Enroll in a Health Care or Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to reduce your taxable income.
