Open Enrollment ends at 5 p.m. Friday

University of Colorado benefits-eligible faculty and staff are reaching the end of the road for Open Enrollment. The opportunity to make final benefits selections for the 2024-2025 plan year is 5 p.m. (MT) Friday, May 10, when enrollments must be submitted in the employee portal. The new plan year begins July 1.

Are you satisfied with your current plans?

There’s no need to act if you are satisfied with your health care coverage — you will be automatically re-enrolled. There’s one exception: You must actively enroll in a Health Care or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA).

Consider your whole benefits package

Even if you are happy with your current benefits package, Open Enrollment is a great time to assess your needs and priorities. Consider updating your beneficiaries, enrolling in or adjusting voluntary retirement contributions, enrolling in a Health Savings Account or making changes to your life insurance policies. Even though you can do these things at any time, Open Enrollment is a great time to steer yourself toward financial security.

Enroll in digital delivery

With Open Enrollment tasks complete, consider opting for digital delivery of plan ID cards and legally required notices:

  • Digital plan ID cards: CU Health Plan members can access medical, dental and pharmacy plan ID cards online or through provider apps. 
  • Forms and notices: Each year, the university is legally required to mail a large packet of benefits notices to all CU Health Plan enrollees. However, you can opt to receive these notices electronically via email. We’ll deliver them to your email inbox and store them conveniently in the portal where you can access them any time – saving time, paper and mailing costs.
