During Open Enrollment (November 2 - 27, 2015) you may:
- Enroll in one of the plan(s) that are available to you based on your zip code.
- Switch plans (if applicable).
- Add or remove eligible dependents. (You also may make these changes during the year within 31 days of a qualified life event, such as a marriage, divorce, birth or adoption. However, if you missed your 31-day eligibility window during the past year, Open Enrollment is the time to make your changes.)
- Enroll in the health care and/or dependent care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). You must elect to participate in one or both FSAs each year, and elect a new annual contribution amount.
If you do not need to make any changes to your current benefit elections, they will carry over to 2016 - except the FSA elections.
There are three Aetna medical plans available to DoD NAF benefit-eligible employees – Aetna Choice POS II, Aetna Traditional Choice and Aetna International Traditional Choice (for those who reside overseas). Your zip code determines which plan is available in your area. The majority of the NAF employees qualify for the Choice POS II plan. The Traditional Choice plan is only available to employees who do not have a Choice POS II network in their area.
Along with the medical plans, there are two Aetna-administered dental plans. The Aetna Passive PPO Dental Plan is available to eligible employees who have elected to enroll in a NAF employer sponsored plan. The Stand Alone Dental plan is available to employees who do not want to enroll in a NAF employer sponsored plan and want dental coverage only. Please note: Only Regular part-time and Regular full-time employees are eligible for dental benefits. Flex employees are not eligible for dental benefits.
In addition to the Aetna medical plan(s), an HMO plan may be available in your area. Check with your local HR office for details and to pick up an HMO enrollment kit. If you enroll in an HMO that does not offer a dental plan, you may elect to enroll in the Aetna Dental Passive PPO.
As an active employee, you are eligible to enroll in the Medical and Passive PPO Dental plans. You must enroll in the medical plan in order to enroll in this dental plan. Please note: only part-time and full-time employees are eligible for dental benefits.
The medical plan(s) is available to you are based on your zip code.

If you are looking for dental coverage, but not medical coverage, you may enroll in the Stand Alone Dental Plan for dental-only benefits during Open Enrollment or during the eligibility period for new hires. The Stand Alone Dental Plan cannot be combined with enrollment in a medical plan under the DoD NAF Health Benefits Program. Please note: Only Regular part-time and Regular full-time employees are eligible for dental benefits.

You may choose to participate in the Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or the Dependent Care FSA, or both. A Health Care FSA is used to reimburse yourself for medical, dental and vision expenses not covered by your health plan. A Dependent Care FSA is used to reimburse yourself for child or adult day care services needed because you work. FSAs offer an easy and convenient way to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to reimburse yourself for eligible out-of-pocket expenses. Learn more about FSAs at www.aetnafsa.com and by clicking on the FSA links below.
Note: You do not have to be enrolled in an employer-sponsored health plan to have an FSA. You must enroll every year for an FSA – your current election does not carry forward from year to year. FSAs are not available to all NAF employees. Please consult your employer-specific plan documents for details.
