Dear NMSU Employee,
The special open enrollment period for the vision plan will be extended through January 29, 2014. Benefit Services has been having fax machine issues and we want to ensure all interested employees have the opportunity to submit their form by the deadline. If you faxed a form to our office on Monday, January 27, 2014, please re-send your document via e-mail or hand deliver to Hadley Hall Room 17 by January 29, 2014. If you do not wish to use e-mail and are not on the Las Cruces campus, please contact our office regarding alternate arrangements for delivery.
If you do not wish to make any changes to your vision plan, you do not need to take any action.
Employees wishing to add, change or cancel coverage will have the opportunity to do so without needing to provide proof of a qualifying event. All changes requested as part of the open enrollment will be effective February 1st.
Employees adding dependents to the coverage will need to provide proof of dependency; unless the person being added is currently covered on the medical and/or dental plan. Acceptable documents for providing proof of dependency can be found on our website at http://benefits.nmsu.edu/enrollment/eligibility/.
The Special Enrollment form can be found at http://benefits.nmsu.edu/insurance/vision/special-open-enrollment/. Forms must be received by Benefit Services no later than 5:00 pm MST on January 29, 2014. Late forms will not be processed. You can submit your information as follows:
