Open Enrollment
April 15, 2021

Open enrollment for medical, dental, and flexible spending accounts (FSA) will be held April 26 through May 14, 2021, for all benefit-eligible College of Western Idaho (CWI) employees. The new plan year begins July 1, 2021.

Open enrollment is your chance to:

  • Enroll or re-enroll in the FSA program for the 2022 fiscal year – FSA plans do not automatically renew year-to-year.
  • Change your medical plan type (PPO, Traditional, High Deductible).
  • Add dependents to dental care coverage.
  • Switch premium deductions from post-tax to pre-tax or vice-versa.
  • As a reminder, dependents can be added or removed from medical coverage at any point during the year.

Open enrollment forms:

  • Forms will be available Monday, April 26, on the Human Resources Employee Resources site on myCWI.
  • Forms can be signed electronically.
  • Open enrollment forms are due Friday, May 14, at 5 p.m., and will be accepted via email or in-person at the Human Resources office located at the Nampa Campus Administration Building.
  • Exceptions will not be made for those who miss the May 14 deadline.
