The purpose of this memorandum is to provide information relative to the health insurance open enrollment fairs, which have been scheduled for the open enrollment period occurring between May 1 and May 29 for coverage effective July 1, 1998.

The fair schedule has been arranged to reach as many employees as possible; the statewide schedule is attached. Please share the schedule with your employees so that they may make plans accordingly.

As in previous years, representatives from all the health insurance vendors (Blue Cross, M.D. Health Plan, Kaiser Permanente and CIGNA Dental) will attend the fairs and be available to disseminate information and answer questions regarding the specific benefits of the plans. Employees should be encouraged to refer to the health care planner which was mailed to them for important rate and benefit comparison information.
