Open Enrollment

November is Open Enrollment

The University of Scranton’s 2017 Open Enrollment Period will be held November 7, 2016 through December 2, 2016.  The purpose of Open Enrollment is to allow plan participants to make changes to their health plan election (medical, prescription, dental, and vision).  Changes during the Open Enrollment Period may include adding or deleting dependents from the plan, moving from one plan type to another or electing to opt in or out of the plan. 

If you do not wish to make a change to your health plan or opt-out election, you will automatically retain your present coverage.  Benefit choices made during the Open Enrollment Period for an employee or a dependent will take effect on January 1, 2017; provided the eligibility requirements are met, the participant is covered under the Plan, and all enrollment requirements are met. 

All benefit enrollment/change forms must be returned to the Office of Human Resources by the close of the business day on Friday, December 2nd, 2016.

Each tab above will provide you with open enrollment documents necessary including all plan information, enrollment forms and Regulatory Compliance Notices. 

You may be required to enter your my.scranton.edu credentials to access the information. For employees needing to make changes, all completed forms must be received by the Office of Human Resources by December 2nd, 2016.

If you have any questions or require additional information please contact the Office of Human Resources at (570) 941-7767.
