Annual Enrollment Update

No Changes Planned for Life, AD&D, Disability, Dental, Vision, or Long Term Care Coverage

The plan design and premium levels for the self-funded UT SELECT Medical plan are currently in the final stages of review based on the outcome of the 82nd Legislative session. However, all optional UT Benefits plans have now been fully reviewed and finalized for the upcoming 2011 – 2012 plan year. The UT System Office of Employee Benefits is pleased to announce that all of the available optional plans will continue to offer the same complete package of benefits during the upcoming plan year, providing robust protection and financial value for you and your family, with no changes to any of the premium rates.

The valuable optional plans available through your UT Benefits program include: Voluntary Group Term Life & AD&D insurance provided by Dearborn National, the self-funded UT SELECT Dental plan administered by Delta Dental, the Dental HMO provided by Assurant, Vision insurance provided by Superior Vision, Group Long-Term Care insurance provided by CNA, and both Short-Term Disability (STD) and Long-Term Disability (LTD) insurance provided by Dearborn National.

During the upcoming Annual Enrollment period, Evidence of Insurability (EOI) will be required for enrollment in Disability (LTD and STD) insurance and for adding or increasing Voluntary Group Term Life coverage (with the exception of Voluntary Dependent Group Term Life available to active employees). Additionally, those enrolling for Long Term Care for the first time during Annual Enrollment will need to complete EOI directly through CNA. Evidence of Insurability (EOI) will no longer be required to enroll in the UT SELECT Medical plan.

Detailed information about each of the optional benefit plans and related Evidence of Insurability requirements can be reviewed on the OEB website at www.utsystem.edu/benefits.
