Open Enrollment 2022


Step 1: Watch an Open Enrollment Meeting

Join the DHR Employee Benefits Unit (EBU) to learn about updates to your benefits package, what you should do during Open Enrollment (OE), and more! 

Watch a recorded session (Spanish closed captioning available) and download a PDF of the presentation slides.


Step 2: Review the Employee Benefits Guide and Visit Benefitsolver

There are new enhancements to our benefits plans, so we encourage you to review your options carefully in the Employee Benefits Guide (also available in Spanish). Download the PDF and open it in a PDF viewer for an enhanced navigation experience.

There is also a webpage for Open Enrollment plan rates and rate comparison charts

Visit benefitsolver.com to:

  • Review your current coverage and cost
  • Make sure your beneficiary selection(s) and dependent information are correct

Step 3: Mark Your Calendars

Mark your calendar to enroll in or make changes to your benefits at benefitsolver.com during OE (April 12 – May 2, 2022).
