The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) officially announced the dates for the 2014 FEHB Open Season which will run from Monday, November 10, 2014 through
Monday, December 8, 2014.

During the annual Open Season, employees can take the actions listed below for the Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS), Federal Employees Dental
and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), and the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program.

Enroll in a flexible spending account -- a health care and/or dependent care account, under the FSAFEDS Program. Unlike with other programs, employees MUST reenroll in
FSAFEDS each year to participate. Enrollments DO NOT carry over from year to year.

NOTE: The maximum annual election for a Health Care Flexible Spending Account and the Limited Expense Health Care Flexible Spending Account is $2,500 for the 2015
Benefit Period. The maximum annual election for a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account is $5,000 for the 2015 Benefit Period. The minimum election for the flexible
spending accounts has changed from $250 to $100 for the 2015 Benefit Period.
