Medical, Dental & Vision Insurance

Medical, dental and vision benefits require that you enroll within 45 days of your date of hire. If you fail to enroll in medical, dental or vision insurance within the 45-day deadline, you will be defaulted to no coverage. You will not be entitled to the Cash in Lieu of Medical benefit or (if you are in an eligible employee group) vision coverage. You will be unable to enroll in a medical, dental or vision plan until the next Open Enrollment period, usually in October, with coverage effective January 1st of the following year. The Benefits Handbook provides helpful information.
