Connolly to Hold Health Plan Open Season Workshop for Federal Employees/Retirees on November 18
Congressman Gerry Connolly will hold his annual Open Season Workshop on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at the Fairfax County Government Center to assist federal employees and retirees in navigating through the many changes in the 2018 Federal Employees Health Benefits Plans (FEHBP), dental and vision insurance programs.
The federal government’s Open Season for federal employees and retirees to change their health plans runs from November 13, 2017 through December 11, 2017.
Connolly’s Open Season Workshop will take place at the Fairfax County Government Center on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. The Government Center is located at 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22035.
Representatives of the various FEHB plans will be available to answer questions and discuss their programs with participants.
“Most FEHB plans have benefit and rate changes for 2018 so it is important that federal employees and retirees know the details on how their current plans are changing and whether or not there is another option that better suits their needs,” Connolly said. “With these possible changes, it is important that every federal employee and retiree review the status of their current coverage.”
Connolly urges every federal employee and retiree, as well as survivor and former spouse annuitants to make sure they review their FEHB plan coverage and other benefits before Open Season ends on December 11, 2017. “Federal employees, retirees, and annuitants who have questions or want to make sure that they have the coverage they need are welcome to attend my Open Season Workshop on November 18th ," he said.Congressman Connolly has held an Open Season event each year since he took office in January 2009.
