During this time, employees can elect to change medical and dental plans; personal accident insurance; tax saver benefit reimbursement accounts (participants must re-enroll each year to participate); tobacco-free premium reduction (affadavit required each year to continue or start to receive the $25 per month, or $50 for both employee and spouse, premium reduction); and health savings account, to which changes can be made throughout the year.
