What can I do during Benefits Open Enrollment?

You can make changes to your coverages for plan year 2022 such as:

  • Add/drop coverages for dental, vision, short-term or long-term disability
  • Add dependents to your insurance or apply for optional life insurance
  • Change medical providers from Health Select of Texas to the Consumer Directed plan or vice versa
  • Remove dependents or drop coverages you longer need


No action is necessary if you are keeping your current benefits elections. This includes the amount you are currently contributing to TexFlex.


Where do I make my changes during Benefits Open Enrollment?

Make changes online in the ERS portal.

If you have never used the portal you can register here.
