Open Enrollment

Open enrollment is your opportunity to elect benefits coverage for 2022. Your Open Enrollment elections will be effective January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022.

Outside of this open enrollment period, you will not have the chance to add, change or remove benefits unless you experience a qualifying life event*.

2022 Benefits Open Enrollment Guide

What you must do during Open Enrollment

You must take action and enroll if you want to contribute to:

  • A Health Savings Account (HSA) beginning with your first paycheck in 2022; and/or
  • A Flexible Spending Account (Dependent Care and Health Care FSA) in 2022

Your other current benefits elections (such as medical, dental, vision, etc.) will automatically carry over into 2022.

What you can only do during Open Enrollment*

  • Enroll, change or cancel your benefits coverage(s)
  • Add or remove dependents from your current plans

What you can do any time during the year

  • Enroll, change or stop your HSA contributions
  • Enroll, change or stop your commuter benefits (pre-tax parking and transit) contributions
  • Enroll, change or stop your 401(k) Plan contributions

*If you have a qualified life event, such as marriage, birth, divorce or loss of spouse’s employment, you may be able to make changes to your benefits coverage(s) outside of Open Enrollment. Contact the Inovalon Employee Benefits Line at 1-888-896-8031 for additional information.

  • A new, enhanced Employee Assistance Program (EAP): We have partnered with BHS to provide enhanced EAP services to include up to five free mental wellbeing counseling sessions, access to attorneys and financial consultants for legal and financial related questions, a comprehensive resource and referral service for help with locating child or elder care and a “concierge” service that can help you find concert tickets, moving resources, and more – all at no cost to you.
  • An Adoption Assistance Benefit: This program will reimburse eligible adoption-related expenses up to a maximum of $5,000. Refer to the Adoption Assistance Program policy available in the Policy Center on 1/1/2022.
  • Pet Benefits which include discounts on veterinary care and prescription medication, pet products and pet telehealth services will be available through Pet Benefit Solutions.
  • For the past two years, Inovalon has been able to keep the amount employees pay for medical coverage relatively unchanged. For 2022, the amount you pay each paycheck for medical plan coverage will increase. This increase is largely related to medical inflation. For over 50% of current medical plan enrollees, the increase will be approximately $7 or less per paycheck. Click here to view the 2022 biweekly employee payroll contributions.
  • The amount you pay each paycheck for dental coverage will increase slightly (approximately $0.16 – $0.56 per paycheck). Click here to view the 2022 biweekly employee payroll contributions.
  • For 2022, the maximum amount1 the IRS permits you to contribute to an HSA is increasing from $3,600 to $3,650 (employee only coverage) or from $7,200 to $7,300 (employee + dependent(s) coverage). These limits include the amount that Inovalon contributes to your HSA. Click here for information on Inovalon’s annual employer contribution to your HSA.
  • Fertility benefits within the medical plans are being enhanced. In order to help all medical plan members build their families, the medical diagnosis criteria for infertility coverage is being waived.

1. Employees age 55 or older can contribute an additional “$1,000” in catch-up contributions.

  • There will be no changes to the medical, dental and vision plan deductibles, copays or out-of-pocket maximums. Cigna, Delta Dental and VSP will continue to be the medical, dental and vision plan providers respectively.
  • If you are currently enrolled in a medical plan and/or dental plan, you will not receive new ID cards unless you change medical plans. If you change medical plans, a new medical plan ID card will be mailed to you by January 1, 2022.
  • If you are enrolled in the medical plan with an HSA or a flexible spending account (FSA), you may continue to use your current debit card(s) in 2022. You will not receive a new HSA debit card(s) for 2022. The amount you pay each paycheck for all other benefits (voluntary life, spouse life, etc.) is not changing.
  • The following benefits will continue to be 100% paid by Inovalon: basic life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance, employee assistance program (EAP), Health Advocate, short-term disability (STD) and basic long-term disability (LTD) coverage.

Your Open Enrollment Checklist


  • Think about your and your family’s health history and healthcare needs.
  • Gather your dependent and beneficiary information, including social security numbers and dates of birth, as you’ll need this information if you wish to add a dependent to your current coverage or designate them as a beneficiary.


  • Review the information in the Benefits Guide to make sure you understand all the employee benefits options available to you. You can also attend one of the virtual health fair events.


  • Make your 2022 benefits elections during the Open Enrollment period (November 3 – November 17, 2021) in ADP or by calling the Inovalon Employee Benefits Center at 1-888-896-8031.


  • After you complete your enrollment, you can download a confirmation of your elections for your records. Please review your confirmation statement to ensure your elections are correct as changes generally cannot be made after the Open Enrollment period unless you experience a qualifying life event.
