Benefits Open Enrollment Information Session
(10:00 AM - 11:00 AM)
Open Enrollment is the yearly period when employees can enroll in AU’s health insurance plan, make changes to their current health insurance enrollments, or to drop health insurance coverage if no longer necessary. After the Open Enrollment period is done you can no longer make changes to your health care plan until the next year’s open enrollment. The only way you are able to make changes to your health insurance during the year is if you have a qualifying life event.
