QEC Open Enrollment

Qualified Essential Coverage (QEC) Open Enrollment starts November 6

If you qualify for QEC benefits, you will be mailed an Open Enrollment Guide and you will see an Open Enrollment Change notification in your Workday inbox.

Eligibility – Part-time employees averaging 30 or more hours per workweek, within the 12-month look back period, are eligible for QEC medical benefits. QEC eligibility is checked annually and only those that qualify will be eligible to elect QEC benefits for the next calendar year during Open Enrollment. 

We encourage you to review your 2024 QEC Benefits Guide and review the information on this page to help you make the best decisions about benefits for you and your family. Your guide also includes a helpful FAQ section that gives further details about your benefits and how you can get the most from your medical benefit. 

When you complete your open enrollment event in Workday, be sure to consider the following:

  • Declare you are tobacco free to qualify for wellness rates, which lowers the cost of your medical contribution. Keep in mind that you must declare you are tobacco free every year to qualify for Wellness Rates.
  • If you elect the Health Savings Plan, be sure to elect the Health Savings Account. You may only enroll in the Health Savings Account if you are enrolled in the Health Savings Plan.
    NOTE: Health Savings Accounts do not automatically renew and must be elected every year.
NEW for 2024:
Discount Tire Employees:
  • MICHIGAN ONLY: There will be some changes to the medical benefit effective January 1, 2024.
