2021 Annual Enrollment

It is time for our Annual Enrollment. All people currently covered under a Diocesan Plan should receive their Annual Enrollment Letter in the mail. This letter will have your pin number to login. Verify that your coverage and personal information is correct and, if desired, to change your coverage to another option. If you need help or assistance, please call the diocesan office and ask for Patty at ext.156 or send an email to . If you do not receive this letter, please call me as soon as possible. If you have any employees that are eligible, working 20 hours or more a week, this is the time to add them. Please call me with questions about that.
