You do not need to come into the Health and Welfare Office for every change. Open Enrollment forms and election forms may be mailed to the office. If documentation is required, however, (e.g., birth certificate, social security cards, proof of other coverage) you may need to supply those documents directly to the office for authentication purposes.
