Health and Flex Open Enrollment Information
Please review all of the open enrollment information carefully. If you are not changing health insurance, no need to make any changes but remember you must re-enroll each year in your flexible spending account(s); they do not automatically renew.
For more information, please see the DHRM open enrollment website. We encourage the use of EmployeeDirect (eDirect) to make open enrollment choices. A helpful information flyer on eDirect is available. For additional information on the log-in process, please go to EmployeeDirect and click on the FAQs or “Getting Started.” If you are using eDirect for the first time, you will be asked for your State ID number. If you have COVA Care or COVA HDHP, your state ID number is the number on your health insurance card (minus the letters). If you have COVA HealthAware, take off the first two zeroes. If you have Kaiser Permanente, please contact the Benefits team at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Please plan accordingly, EmployeDirect can become very slow near the end of open enrollment. Make your changes early!
