About Open Enrollment

  • Open Enrollment begins Monday, April 24, and ends Friday, May 12. This is the one time during the year that you can enroll in, waive or make changes to your benefits.

    Last year, DPS employees spent an average of $5,000 or more out-of-pocket on their medical benefits. To help our employees take charge of how their health care dollars are spent and choose the best plan for their needs, we're offering resources and supports to help.
