2021/2022 Open Enrollment: May 3 – 17

Open Enrollment for your 2021/2022 benefits begins May 3 and ends May 17. This is your annual opportunity to review your needs and select the benefits that provide the best coverage and value for you and your family.

Changes for the 2021/2022 plan year

Every year, we take a close look at our benefits program and consider changes that could better support your total well-being, while also meeting our business and health care reform obligations.

As part of our ongoing strategy to provide effective, competitive, and financially responsible benefits, we’ll be making the following changes for 2021/2022.

BenefitWhat’s changing
Cost sharing As the overall cost of health care rises, the amount both Fanatics and you pay for medical coverage will increase modestly. We are pleased to announce that we worked closely with our medical plan administrators to introduce some coverage enhancements, while keeping your contribution increase to a minimum. You can view the 2021/2022 contribution rates as you enroll on the UltiPro website. The 2021/2022 Open Enrollment presentation can also be reviewed as needed.

Enhanced frame frequency to 12 months and frame allowance to $150.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

Any Health Care FSA balances up to $550 will carry over to your 2021/2022 FSA after July 2021, but only if you make a Health Care FSA election for 2021/2022. (There is no balance carryover with the Dependent Care FSA.)

Enroll on the UltiPro website by May 17!

If you don’t take action, your current benefit elections will continue next year, with the exception of Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Account (HSA) contributions. You must take action if you want to contribute to an FSA or HSA in 2021/2022.

How to enroll

Enroll online at your convenience, following the steps below. You may also call 888.577.6359 if you have questions about the Fanatics benefits program or need help enrolling.

  1. Get Started: To begin your enrollment, sign in to the UltiPro system and go to “Myself.” Click “Manage My Benefits” and then “Get Started.”
  2. Verify Your Profile: Navigate to Menu > Myself > Personal. If you need to make any updates, select the change you would like to make under “Things I can do.” If all your information is accurate, click “NEXT: Review My Family.”
  3. Verify Your Family: Review the dependents that are listed to ensure their information is accurate. If you need to add a new dependent, click the “Add Family Member” button and provide the requested information.
  4. Shop for Benefits/Complete Questionnaires: You may encounter questionnaires through the enrollment process. Questionnaires track information that is related to your plan elections.
  5. Medical, Dental, and Vision: There is a separate page for each type of benefit (medical, dental, and vision). You have the option to add/remove family members, decline any coverages, and compare plans. Once you’re ready to choose a plan, select “View Plan” and “Update Cart” to enroll in coverage.
  6. Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA): FSAs and HSAs require you to select an annual contribution goal. Use the slider to select your desired contribution amount and enter your annual goal or decline coverage.
  7. Company-Paid and Voluntary Life Insurance: Company-paid life insurance requires you to select the plan so you can assign your beneficiaries. Since this coverage is provided at no cost to you, you are not able to decline company-paid life insurance. If you would like to enroll in additional voluntary life insurance, select your desired coverage from the dropdown list. If you elect a level of coverage that requires Evidence of Insurability (EOI), you will see both the amount of coverage that you are eligible for immediately without EOI and the amount of coverage you would like to have, both with their associated costs.
  8. Review and Checkout: You can see additional detail, review covered family members, and edit coverage by either using the shopping cart icon at the top of the page, or by selecting “Modify Coverage” next to the plan. Scroll to the bottom and select “Review and Checkout.” You may make modifications to your coverage if needed, or simply select the green “Checkout” button at the bottom of the page.

If you need assistance, please call 888.577.6359 from 8 am – 11 pm EST, Monday through Friday.

Can I change my benefit elections?

Keep in mind that after Open Enrollment ends, you cannot change your benefit elections unless you experience a qualifying life event, such as getting married or having a baby. If you have a qualifying life event, visit the Life Events page to understand what you must do to keep your benefits current.

Your enrollment checklist
  • Explore this website to learn about your benefit options, paying special attention to the changes coming next year.
  • Think about your coverage needs, including how much health care you anticipate needing and whether your current life and disability insurance provides enough protection.
  • Make sure your dependent information is correct and all your dependents are still eligible. Submit proof of their eligibility by the close of Open Enrollment on May 17 in order for your dependent(s) to continue to receive benefits under the Fanatics plans.
  • Update your FSA enrollment and HSA contribution amount — they don’t carry over to the next year.
  • Review your beneficiaries — it’s a good idea to review your beneficiary information (especially if your personal circumstances have changed) and take this opportunity to make updates as needed.
  • Complete your benefits enrollment by May 17.
