Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment 2019 will be Monday, October 22, through Friday, November 9, 2018.

Stanford regularly reviews benefits, programs and perks for employees so that no matter where you are in your life and career, you’ll find value in what’s available.

Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to customize your set of health benefits and to add or drop eligible dependents from coverage. Any changes you make to your benefits during Open Enrollment will take effect on January 1, 2019.

What Happens If I Do Nothing?

If you don’t actively enroll in benefits during Open Enrollment, your current selections will roll over for the upcoming year at the new rates, unless you have:

  • a Health Savings Account (HSA)
  • a health care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
  • a dependent day care FSA
  • a Child Care Subsidy Grant

You must renew these accounts and accept your grant award every year. If you do not need medical coverage through Stanford next year, you must waive coverage during Open Enrollment.

We will continue to add resources to this page, including the rates for all medical plans, which will be available in late September. We will let employees know via email when this information is available.
