Open Enrollment 2021

November is Open Enrollment

The University of Scranton’s 2021 Open Enrollment Period will be held November 2, 2020 through November 30, 2020.  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, 2021; provided the eligibility requirements are met, the participant is covered under the Plan, and all enrollment requirements are met.  Please note, flexible spending elections must be made annually.

All benefit enrollment/change forms must be returned to the Office of Human Resources by the close of the business day on November 30, 2020.

 


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 November 30, 2020.

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

Representatives from Highmark will provide an overview of the health and benefit plans. Members of the Human Resources team will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding your medical and prescription, EAP, Life and Critical Illness coverage. Enrollment forms will be available, as well as information on the Flexible Spending Account.
