This Open Enrollment, the University of Colorado has your ticket to wellness. Here are few quick things to know:

  • Passive enrollment: If you would like to keep the same benefit choices, no action is required and you will be automatically re-enrolled. If you want to make a change, we'll provide many ways to learn about and compare plans.
  • There's one exception: You must actively enroll in Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for plan year 2021-2022.
  • Now is a good time to consider other benefits: Do you need to update your beneficiaries, enroll in or adjust voluntary retirement contributions or make changes to your life insurance policies? Even though you can do these things anytime of year, Open Enrollment is a great time to take a closer look. Watch the Open Enrollment digital session to learn more starting April 19.
  • How to enroll: You will make your Open Enrollment changes in the portal using the benefits enrollment tool. If you need a login or have access issues, visit our enrollment tool access page.
