Employees will have three weeks to choose which medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance plans will meet their needs throughout the coming fiscal year.
Open Enrollment 2014-15 begins at 8 a.m. Monday, April 28 and ends at 5 p.m. Friday, May 16. To help employees understand each plan, CU benefits professionals and plan carriers will hold sessions on each campus from May 6-13.
While plan rates and other details have yet to be released, there are several confirmed changes and additions that will affect employees, including:
- CU will no longer participate in State of Colorado plans. This means all classified staff employees who work less than 50 percent time must now choose among CU plans. These classified employees will receive a letter outlining changes, and we encourage this population to attend an OE session.
- Employees who participate in CU Health Plan – Exclusive will be responsible for a $150 copay each time they visit the emergency room. This copay will be waived if they are admitted to the emergency room.
- Children ages 5-11 who are covered by a CU Health Plan will soon be eligible to participate in a new child wellness program, Be Colorado's Brussels + Muscles.
