Enroll by Nov. 6, 2023, through HR Self Service
Open Enrollment begins Wednesday, Oct. 18, and you must make your 2024 elections by 11:59 p.m. MT (10:59 p.m. PT) on Monday, Nov. 6.
Review your current benefit elections and consider whether they will continue to meet your needs in the coming year. Once you’ve made your decisions, enroll in the programs you want for yourself (and your family) in 2024.
How to Enroll
Enroll or make changes to your benefit elections at any time between Oct. 18 and Nov. 6, by 11:59 p.m. MT (10:59 p.m. PT).
Enroll in medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts (healthcare, dependent care, and, for California employees only, transportation), and vacation buy/sell1 through HR Self Service. Remember, if you’re enrolling in a healthcare flexible spending account (HCFSA), be sure to plan your expenses carefully, as you’ll lose any balance over $610 after Dec. 31, 2023. As a reminder, if you’re enrolling in the Health Savings Plan, you cannot contribute to an HCFSA.
There will be a new autopay feature and vendor for the HRA and HCFSA. Beginning Jan. 1, participants in the Total Health PPO Plan with BCBSNM or UHC will have a new vendor, PayFlex, to manage their HRA and HCFSA. PayFlex will offer an autopay feature that automatically reimburses you for medical, dental and vision services processed by your insurance plan. Employees who do not wish to use the autopay feature must opt out of this option during Open Enrollment. View details of the PayFlex autopay option.
To make your elections from home or your mobile device, you’ll need a CryptoCard, HSPD-12 or mobile credential.
To enroll in voluntary benefits (hospital indemnity insurance, accident insurance, critical illness insurance, disability benefits, or legal, for example), go to mysandiaextras.com.
The elections you make during Open Enrollment are effective from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2024. As you make your choices for 2024, be sure to review the Medical Plan Options video.
