Open enrollment for 2019 Exchange benefits will be Nov. 1-30.
During this period, associates can enroll in a health plan, switch plans, add or remove dependents and elect to enroll or re-enroll in one or both flexible spending accounts (FSAs).
FSAs cover eligible expenses for healthcare and dependent care. FSA elections do not roll over year to year. If they wish to participate, associates must make a new election to have an FSA in 2019.
Associates can go to www.nafhealthplans.com to:
- Meet Alex, the “know-it-all” benefits counselor (or to Employee Self Service > Hi I’m Alex/eBenefits)

During open enrollment, associates who are already enrolled in a life insurance plan can increase coverage by one level with no proof of good health required.
Associates can contact HRSC if they have questions (HRSC@aafes.com / 1-800-508-8466).
