Due to changes in the State’s Group Insurance Plan, the 2011 Annual Enrollment/Open Enrollment Period for Insurance Changes is September 15 – October 15, 2010 with coverage effective on January 1, 2011. Deductions for this coverage will begin with December 2010 payrolls.
If you are currently covered by the University’s health insurance, you must select a new health insurance plan, an insurance carrier, and a premium tier for 2011. If you do not complete an enrollment form during Annual Enrollment, you will be automatically enrolled in the Standard PPO, Blue Cross ‘Network S’, and will not be able to switch options until the next Annual Enrollment Period.
You will receive an Enrollment Kit from the State, by mail, in early September. You may also make certain changes to your optional insurance coverage during the Enrollment Period.
Enrollment forms will not be accepted after 3:00 pm, October 15, 2010. It is suggested that you hand-deliver forms to Human Resources the week of October 11. Faxes cannot be accepted.
