Welcome to Open Enrollment

This year’s Open Enrollment brings good news about costs, and a few important changes. Here are some highlights:

  • Most faculty and staff will see medical plan premium increases of less than $10 a month across all salary and coverage levels. Premium increases for UC Care will be a bit higher, ranging from $17–$53 a month. View 2018 rates for employees.
  • UC will continue to offer the same choice of quality medical plans next year. Take a moment to review UC’s full range of plan choices to make sure you have the best fit for you and your family. 
  • There will be a new pharmacy benefits administrator for UC’s preferred provider organization (PPO) plans and network changes for members of Western Health Advantage (WHA).  See details on the Medical Plans page.

Explore this website to find more information about these changes and your benefits plans. Then, log into your personal account on At Your Service Online to make your changes. You have until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 21, to make changes.

Changes you make during Open Enrollment are effective Jan. 1, 2018.
