Open enrollment, also called annual enrollment, is the one time during the year when employees can make changes to their employee benefits plan without having a qualifying life event. Enrollment dates will vary by company dependent upon the anniversary date with the insurance company. Regardless, the period is typically 2 to 4 weeks around that specific date. A failure to enroll within the enrollment period could mean the loss of coverage until the next open enrollment period.
