Open Enrollment begins soon: Here’s what you need to know

Mark your calendar for Open Enrollment, April 22-May 10. This is your chance to keep, waive or enroll in medical, dental, vision, life and disability insurance as well as savings plans. It’s important to learn about these plans and your options so you can effectively chart your plan.

Here’s what’s new:

  • An increase in annual amount covered for prescriptions glasses frames and contact lenses and a decrease in vision exam costs
  • More cavity treatment options for children on CU’s dental plans
  • An increase in out-of-pocket maximums for CU Health Plans – Extended, Exclusive and Kaiser

Learn more about these changes on the Open Enrollment website.

Satisfied with your current benefits? You may not need to take any action

If you take no action, you will be automatically re-enrolled in your 2018-2019 benefits for the new plan year. However, if you have a Health Care Flexible Spending Account or a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account, you must re-enroll for plan year 2019-2020.
