Final Reminder: Open Enrollment Ends at 8 p.m. Friday

Employees have annual opportunity to change benefits elections.

October 23, 2017

For only a few more days, George Washington University faculty and staff may make changes to their benefits, including health, dental and vision plans, during this year’s Open Enrollment period, which ends at 8 p.m. on Friday. Most changes will take effect on Jan. 1, 2018.

Last month, the university announced benefits enhancements to the current and upcoming year. A more detailed Open Enrollment Guide is also now available, and employees have received more information by email.

GW Benefits is holding Open Enrollment fairs—just one fair remains, on Wednesday—to offer employees help with personalized questions about their benefits.

Separate from Open Enrollment, which affects benefits for 2018, employees who are currently covered under a 2017 GW health plan now have access to Castlight, a tool to help find doctors and compare prices on medications and medical services. Employees who sign up for Castlight before Friday will be entered into a drawing for a $400 Visa® Gift Card.*

*Winnings are taxable and will be included in payroll.
