Open Enrollment starts April 23: here's what to expect

Remind your employees to mark their calendars for their annual benefits checkup. Open Enrollment begins at 8 a.m. April 23 and ends at 5 p.m. May 11.

What's changing?

While it’s common to hear news of rising medical plan costs, the University of Colorado has good news: Plan rates will not increase for the 2018-19 plan year for faculty, staff and regular retirees. Early retirees may see small increases in dental premiums.

Employees currently enrolled in the CU Health Plan – Exclusive plan will no longer be restricted to a regional network (north, central and south). This plan has transitioned to a single statewide network, giving employees access to more doctors and specialists.  Emergency room costs and out-of-pocket limits are increasing for all medical plans.

Find more details on upcoming changes.

Encourage your team to dial in on their options

Benefits Sessions hosted by Employee Services’ benefits professionals will be held on each CU campus from April 23 through May 2, allowing employees to learn more about plan changes and ask questions. If they need additional information, they can speak with insurance plan representatives, Be Colorado and Employee Services benefits professionals.
