It's open enrollment season, a short period of time when companies offer employees the opportunity to make changes to their health insurance and other benefits for the next year. In some cases, your choices this fall could potentially save you hundreds of dollars in 2015. But you have to take action and analyze your health benefits.
Nearly 150 million Americans are covered under employer-sponsored health plans. Still, many may spend far less time reviewing plan options than choosing a new place to vacation.
Workplace benefits can be complex and confusing to navigate. Yet, taking time to ensure that the plan you selected last year is still appropriate for you and your family can potentially save you hundreds of dollars. If you or your dependents have had a change in their health status, you need to consider the out-of-pocket costs and possibly change your plan.
