What is open enrollment?

Open Enrollment is the time when you can: 1. Switch Health Insurance Plans 2. Add/Drop Dependents without a qualifying event 3. Add or drop any optional coverage offered by American Fidelity (FSA, Dependent Care and Disability Plan Holders meet with American Fidelity every year)

When is open enrollment?

The Open Enrollment period happens every year, in the month of September. The effective date for any changes is October 1. You will receive an email at the beginning of each school year outlining the steps for Open Enrollment. If you aren't making changes to your Kaiser, Blue Cross, Vision, Dental or Life Insurance, you do not need to take any action. Keep reading for more important information.

If you are enrolled, or would like to enroll, in any of our optional programs offered by American Fidelity, including accident insurance, FSA/HSA, Cancer Insurance, Disability Insurance, etc. you MUST make an appointment using the links offered in the Open Enrollment Email sent out every August. If you do not meet with American Fidelity every year, FSA/HSA and Dependent Care plans will become void in October. We recommend meeting with them annually to update them on any salary changes that might affect the Additional Disability Insurance plans, or to hear about anything new they are offering.

If you do not know which medical plan you are currently enrolled in, please call CVT Customer Service at 1-800-288-9870 or create a myCVT account to see your benefit plan details, print membership cards, upload required documents, and to learn more about what CVT offers you.
