About Open Enrollment

    Save the date for open enrollment April 23-May 11. Your action is required.
    Open enrollment -- the time when you elect benefits for the following year -- is April 23-May 11. This year is an active enrollment year. That means every benefits-eligible employee must take action and select or waive benefits. 
    Thanks to helpful feedback from our team members, we have made it easier than ever to elect your benefits this year. Our new benefits enrollment site allows you to shop for benefits, add them to your cart and see your out-of-pocket costs up front. 
    Stay tuned for more information from Human Resources in DPS newsletters, your email inbox and home mailbox for resources to help you make the best choice for your medical care. 
    Introducing Aetna, a New Benefits Provider
    We are excited to announce our new health care partner, Aetna. This new option is designed to save you money while offering high-quality health care choices. Faced with rising health care costs across the country, the DPS Benefits Board voted to explore partnerships with other major medical carriers to better meet the needs of our team members. Aetna proved to be the best option, alongside our lasting partnership with Kaiser.

    Effective July 1, DPS will offer four Aetna plans -- three Consumer-driven Health Plans (CDHPs) and one Deductible HMO (DHMO) plan. We will no longer offer Denver Health Medical Plans.

    We understand this is a change. But, as health insurance rates in Colorado and the United States continue to climb, we're making this change as part of our ongoing effort to provide you with the most affordable, high-quality health care choices available.

    All benefits-eligible employees will have an opportunity to enroll in an Aetna or Kaiser plan during Open Enrollment, April 23-May 11. Current DHMP members should have received an email with information on how to find a doctor in Aetna's network and navigate transition-of-care coverage.

    Why did we choose Aetna?

    The Benefits Board selected Aetna to provide employees with access to more than 1,200 primary care physicians and 5,900 specialists. Aetna's plans are about 15% more expensive than what DHMP members are paying now, but they're significantly less expensive than DHMP's proposed plans for 2018-19.
