Thanks to Cigna’s online portal, employees will now be able to make their 2018 medical, dental, vision, flex and dependent care elections right from their computer.

The portal – – directs users through the enrollment process at a self-guided pace and will remain available during the full enrollment period, Oct. 2-31. An employee [Open%20Enrollment%20Assistance]Open Enrollment How To Guide has been created and offers basic instructions on how to navigate the site and elect your 2018 benefits.
