The open enrollment period has been extended to Thursday, Nov. 9. Benefit-eligible employees should use the open enrollment tool through the myUT portal to review coverage options and either elect benefits or waive coverage by this date.

Benefit elections will be effective Jan. 1.

If you have a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account, you must re-elect annually, per Internal Revenue Service regulations. If you do not re-elect, contributions to your accounts will stop Dec. 31.

You also can ensure your spouse maintains coverage by using the open enrollment tool. If your spouse works outside the University and is covered through UT’s Gold, Silver or Bronze health-care plans, you must submit a spousal coverage affidavit. If you cover a child age 19 to 26, you must complete an adult child certification form in the open enrollment tool.

Please take time to examine the plan overview, which details deductible and general plan information. Complete benefit information is at
