Health and Well-Being

At Fordham we are committed to providing generous, world-class medical benefits to our employees. Those benefits include medical benefits, dental benefits, vision benefits, and life insurance.

If you’re not sure which benefit is right for you, our BeneFITwise tool, found in Benefitexpress on the Employee page of the University portal, provides a handy tool that helps you compare your estimated out-of-pocket expenses under each plan option and choose the one that best meets your needs. 

Our online benefits site is available year-round for you and your family.

  • Enroll and view your current benefits 

  • Submit life event changes, such as a birth of a child, marriage, divorce and loss of other coverage, within 30 days of the effective date of the change in status.

Transparency in Coverage: Machine Readable Files
The Transparency in Coverage Final Rules require certain group health plans to disclose on public website information regarding in-network provider rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts and billed charges for covered items and services in two separate machine-readable files (MRF). The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to access and analyze data more easily.

The MRFs for the Fordham University Health and Wellness plan be found here and can be identified by the following titles: Fordham-University_index.json and Fordham-University_POS-CHOICE-PLUS_allowed-amounts.json.gz. The files are updated monthly.
