Enroll in the Plan

New for 2017!! The Oklahoma Conference will begin using the Employee Navigator system, a new online enrollment and support software for all of your health benefits administration needs. The Employee Navigator system will be one location that will provide a lot of services. In the system, participants can elect or adjust benefits, update address’s when moving & learn more about the health benefits offered by the Annual Conference. Participants are encouraged to store your username and password in a safe place as you will be directed to the site frequently to make changes as needed. All participants are required to elect benefits online and will receive an email to register and enroll from the email address noreply@employeenavigator.com.
