When is my insurance effective?
For Open Enrollment: October 1, 2017
In most circumstances as a new employee or due to a Qualifying Mid-year Event, your insurance is effective the 1st day of the month following the date you submit your enrollment form.  One exception to this rule is childbirth.  In this case, the effective date of coverage for the newborn would be the day he/she was born.

What if I need to change my enrollment after Open Enrollment?
Open Enrollment is the only time you can change your enrollment in the health insurance, unless you experience a Qualifying Mid-Year Event (QME) that allows you to change your elections mid-year.
