It’s the most wonderful time of the year: time to sign up for health insurance! There are various ways you can make that happen, but the most used one is a healthcare Open Enrollment Period often held in November. The healthcare open enrollment period is a busy time in many organizations, especially those in the HR departments. So how can you participate in an Open Enrollment program in your office? Here are some things you need to know.

Understand your options

You should clearly explain your options to your employees. There are many options out there. Sometimes you might feel overwhelmed, but ensuring your employees knows the difference between all these programs in the only way to help them participate fully in the healthcare open enrollment programs.

Engage

Open enrollment means getting employees to participate. This is the time to engage your employees and help them make the right decision that will benefit them. Give your employees benefits of biometrics and other office wellness programs. Having a wellness fair or another kind of engaging event is a perfect way to find out what your employees really want in their office. 

Communicate

Some employees are well-informed about their benefits and the procedure of enrolling in the healthcare open enrollment programs. To help them, give them information to improve their understanding. Offer a window for communication before and during the open enrollment period. 

Wellness Programs

Use this opportunity to your advantage, and start using a cutting edge wellness program this year. These programs offer services such as yoga, massage, fitness boot camps, and mediation.

Open Enrollment 2019 starts in just a few short months. Don’t let it get away from you!
