Get Help With Your Medical and Dental Premiums

Are you covering dependents on your State medical and/or dental plan? You might be eligible for premium assistance.

You can apply for the State of Colorado's Medical Supplement Program from April 11 through May 12, 2023. Learn more on our Supplement Program page.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Participation in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) requires yearly active enrollment. If you currently have an FSA, you will have to re-enroll.

Passive Enrollment

If you don't make changes to your benefits, your current benefits elections will roll into the next plan year, except for FSAs which require a new election each year.

You should confirm your elections even if you don't plan to make changes. All changes are locked in at the end of the corrections period unless you experience a qualifying life event.
