Open Enrollment 2017


Changes to your medical benefits will be effective January 1, 2017. The new rates will appear on your last paycheck of 2016.

Open Enrollment is October 31st - November 11th


Open Enrollment related to calendar year 2017 for medical, dental and vision benefits and flexible spending accounts is October 31 - November 11, 2016. If you wish to make a change in your medical coverage or enroll in the flexible spending account, you must utilize the on-line enrollment process or complete the necessary paper forms available on this Web page.

If you are not making any changes to your medical plan no action is required, but you should review the new 2017 medical plan rates, when the rates are posted in late October 2016.

The investment that you and the university have made toward your healthcare is significant. To learn more about the services you have and how they may assist you and your family, take a moment to review the 2017 benefits handbook.
