Open Enrollment Begins October 24

October 24, 2022 – Santa Fe College’s annual Open Enrollment for the 2023 benefit plan year will begin on Monday, Oct. 24, and will end on Friday, Nov. 4, 2022. Open Enrollment is an opportunity for employees to add new plans, make plan changes, and add or remove dependent and/or domestic partner coverage for the upcoming plan year. No changes can be made after the Open Enrollment period unless they are due to a qualifying event such as marriage, divorce, or birth/adoption. For a complete list of qualifying events, please contact Human Resources

Benefits available during Open Enrollment for the 2023 benefit plan year include medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, flex spending, cancer insurance, sick leave pool, life insurance, disability insurance, and Legal/ID Shield.  For complete details on all benefit plans and options, please visit the Virtual Benefit Information page. We encourage everyone to review their current benefit information on the FBMC benefits portal and to review the open enrollment summary page so that you can make informed decisions about your 2023 benefits.  

As a reminder, because of the unanticipated increase of $600 to out-of-pocket expenses for plan deductibles, the college will be funding $600 into either a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) or a Health Savings Account (HSA) for all employees covered by one of our Florida Blue health plans. The $600 can be used for expenses like copays, doctor visits, over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, dental expenses, frames, contacts, etc. These new HRA accounts will be administered through our current FSA vendor (Eagles, Benefits by Design), who will be hosting a series of workshops on Tuesday, Oct. 25, in Building L, Room 257 at the following times: 

  • 9:30 am 
  • 11:15 am 
  • 1:30 pm 
  • 3:15 pm 

Seating is limited to 30 people for each session. To reserve a seat, email with your preferred presentation time. For those that are unable attend, the presentation will be recorded and distributed at a later date.
