New hires entered into Edison after Sept. 1 of the current year will need to elect benefits as soon as possible via Edison Self Service or the agency benefits coordinator can enter the benefits via Edison's eForms function.
For reference, a step-by-step guide for eForms can be found on the ABC webpage at https://www.tn.gov/partnersforhealth/agency-benefits-coordinators.html.
Once the new-hire event has been processed, it will close and the Annual Enrollment event will open in ESS overnight.
The next day, your new employees can then be enrolled by their ABC using an eForm again or they can make selections on their own using ESS. These selections will be for benefits starting Jan. 1 of the following year.
Please note: If the employee is hired during the last week of the Annual Enrollment period or after the AE period, please submit a paper enrollment form with your new hire eForm submission for changes in 2024.
