Every HR manager counts down until the first day of open enrollment. This year, that date is November 1.

The only thing I would add to this article is a method for the employee to compare plans to find the best option for their needs. Unfortunately the way, healthcare insurance is set up here in the USA, there’s very little time between when the insurance sets it’s premium and coverage and the individual needing to check for continued necessary coverage.
