One event every company must go through each year is open enrollment. This year employees will be paying closer attention and thinking differently about their health and benefits. Employers need to rethink health plans designs and benefits programs focusing on mental health, virtual care and employee support as people’s circumstances and needs change due to COVID-19. And, employers will need creative and effective methods to engage employees and communicate critical information during annual enrollment. The introduction of new or changed plans, enrollment platform, or carriers makes it even more important that employees understand how changes affect them, what actions they need to take, and tools available to make the right decisions.


Amid economic uncertainty, employers will also need to plan for scenarios that impact the cost and affordability of their health and benefit plan offerings.
