Open Season: The Insiders’ Perspective

Beyond unprecedented global changes, a lot can change for you and your family in a year. Federal open season provides you the opportunity to select plans that fit your life best. Open season insiders offer federal employees advice on potential switches to protect against worst-case scenarios for you and your family.
