At a Glance: During the annual Health Benefits Transfer Period, employees may transfer into any health plan for which they are eligible, add or drop the Optional Rider, or add or drop dependent(s). The transfer period (also known as “open enrollment”) is the only time during the year that you have the opportunity to make changes to your City health benefits without experiencing a qualifying event such as a marriage or the birth of a child. Changes will go into effect on the first full payroll period of January 2017. Check your DOE email during the first week of October for more communications on the upcoming transfer period.
