Open Enrollment (OE) Client Communication Timeline
With many of our clients renewing their benefit offerings on January 1st, most will soon be evaluating their benefit packages and communicating their open enrollment strategies to their employees. To assist with open enrollment preparation, we want to provide a clear timeline to OCA’s January 1st, 2022 renewal process.
OCA also wanted to inform you that all existing client fees will remain the same for 2022!
