Annual Enrollment for Benefits

Annual Enrollment for benefits for the 2010-2011 plan year begins on July 1, 2010, and lasts through July 31, 2010. Two special Annual Enrollment editions of the “A Matter of Health” newsletter (one for employees, one for retirees) are being prepared and will be released on Wednesday, June 16, 2010.

Both newsletters include detailed information on benefits plan premium changes, changes to the UT SELECT Medical benefits plan design, as well as new cost reductions and plan enhancements for Group Term Life and AD&D insurance.

Watch for the arrival of the “A Matter of Health” newsletter and announcements from your own institution’s benefits office providing you with information related to Annual Enrollment, Benefits Fairs, Lunch and Learn opportunities and more.
