Every year, the last half of November begins a season of holiday anticipation. Thoughts of turkey dinners, family gatherings and holiday shopping fill the heads of folks everywhere. A less pleasant task, however, is filling out your annual enrollment packet for work-based insurance benefits.
With changes due to new health care legislation, this year was even more important than most for many workers. Provisions affecting preventive care coverage, lifetime caps, flexible spending accounts, coverage of adult children and pre-existing conditions were just a few of the changes employees had to consider before making choices for 2011.
How did the process go for you this year? Did you do more research before filling out your enrollment packet? Was there any confusion? Did your costs go up? How much? Tell us about it.
