Enrollment for next year’s benefits will open on Oct. 14 and continue until Oct. 28. Open enrollment is your opportunity to make changes to your benefits coverage for the coming year. Changes made during open enrollment will be effective Jan. 1, 2017. We seek to keep Fermilab’s benefits program as one of our advantages in the competitive marketplace.
The medical plans will remain with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois in 2017. The dental PPO and HMO plans will remain with CIGNA in 2017. If you would like to participate in a health or dependent care flexible spending account for 2017, you must enroll every year.
