RE: Annual Open Enrollment Period - Section 125
I have helped the new employees get in after the enrollmemnt deadline, and they really use their health benefits a lot - especially dental. It is the long time employees who cause the most headaches when they want to "save" money, drop their coverage, and when something happens - they come to me and insist
on getting back in. Some times we can do it ...for example, one female employee dropped her coverage, then became pregnant - that was a lot of work on my part to get her back in. Most of the time, the employee has to wait until next enrollment.
