As of November 14, Open Season is officially underway! AFSPA is incredibly excited about this year’s Open Season. Until December 12, AFSPA employees will be at eligible agencies’ health fairs, so look out for our table at your agency’s event.
Open Season Webinars
AFSPA’s COO, Kyle Longton, will be hosting multiple Open Season webinars during this time. Join him as he goes over the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (health insurance), FSAFEDS, and FEDVIP (Federal Dental and Vision Insurance Program) (dental and vision insurance) enrollment requirements for Open Season. He will also discuss OPM’s 2023 initiatives, the 2023 benefit enhancements of the Foreign Service Benefit Plan (FSBP), and answer your Open Season and general plan questions at the end of each webinar.
