About the Options

The new program meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) while continuing to offer faculty, administrators, and staff a choice of competitive, affordable health, dental, and vision benefits. It reflects much research and input from the Faculty Senate, the Administrators Conference, the Senate’s Salary and Benefits Committee, and a special ad hoc Committee on Health Insurance.

The changes offer coverage that is the same or better than our current program and include:
  • Four new medical options — two familiar options and two brand new options — under a single carrier: UnitedHealthcare (UHC)
  • A new dental plan through Cigna that offers two options for coverage
  • A new vision plan through Vision Service Plan (VSP), also offering two options
