Open Enrollment is the one time of year you can make changes to your benefit elections, without a family status change (i.e. marriage, birth, etc.).  If you do not make changes during Open Enrollment, your existing health coverage in 2024 will continue, but your costs will change. However, you must enroll or re-enroll in your health and/or dependent care flexible spending account (FSA) each year.

UC and employers nationwide are feeling the effects of three factors that directly impact medical plan premiums: costs for medical care, costs for prescription drugs, and how much care is used by the people who are insured. Despite UC covering a larger share of premiums than in previous years, we will incur a significant increase in medical plan premiums for 2024.  Employee Medical Plan Costs (2024)  Note, salary tiers are based on your salary as of January 1, 2023.
