Talent Development and Human Resources
Benefits Information for 2017
As reported last fall, we have been reviewing health care plan offerings and options for 2017 and beyond, including seeking proposals from qualified vendors. The Board of Trustees awarded a multi-year contract to Anthem Inc. for medical plan administration services beginning January 1, 2017. Anthem provided The University with the most financially competitive proposal covering the broadest network access. Under Anthem, employees and their dependents will see little disruption to in-network providers and services, as the network provides a 99% match to our current network Apex Community Choice. More details will be sent out as Talent Development & Human Resources begins the implementation process with Anthem and prepares for open enrollment.
Medical and Prescription Plan Design Changes
There are other important changes coming to our health plan for 2017 that I would like to make you aware of. We want to provide people with information early, before open enrollment even begins, so they have plenty of time prepare and consider their options. More detailed information is available on the 2017 Benefits page.
