Health Insurance Information

  • 2019 Open Enrollment is now closed.

    ​2020 Open Enrollment is expected to begin in April, 2020 for plan year beginning July 1, 2020.

    Questions regarding benefits should be directed to Dedham's Benefit Coordinator Deb Deegan.

    Open Enrollment is an annual process that gives you the opportunity to enroll in new benefit plans or make changes to your existing coverage. It is also a good time to verify that your dependents and beneficiary information is current. You must re-enroll  every plan year in the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Health Care and Dependent Care plans and the Opt-Out Program. If you are cancelling any benefit coverage(s) please contact Debbie Deegan at 781-751-9174 or ddeegan@dedham-ma.gov.
