Fordham University Health Insurance

As you may have learned recently, we are making improvements to the health insurance benefits program that will go into effect January 1, 2015.

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:
Your Costs

We are in the process of finalizing the percentage of the program costs you will pay for benefits under these new plans. We anticipate having a decision on payroll contributions during September and will update this section at that time.

Additional Benefits

In addition, the University will provide additional, enhanced benefits to further help you and your family obtain or stay in good health. You do not need to enroll for these automatic programs.  They include:
  • An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to assist you with a range of issues that may require counseling.
  • Health Advocate — a health care advocacy and system navigation assistance service.
  • An array of decision tools to help you make the best choice for your family.
For More Information

You can expect to receive more information as it is finalized via email, print, and through this website. Beginning in October, you will also have an opportunity to discuss  the details and ask questions in small group information seminars.

For now, you may:
  • Review the frequently asked questions.
  • Email with any additional questions. We will respond directly to your question and may include it in the next update to the FAQs.
  • Call the Benefits Office at 718-817-4932.
