Benefits: Learn what's new for 2017

Here are the changes you will see in plans for the coming year:

  • Medical plan premiums for 2017 will rise in alignment with industry trends. If you wish to decline university medical coverage, you are eligible for a medical waiver credit of $800 annually if your salary is $40,000 or less, and $500 annually if your salary is more than $40,000.

  • If you are currently enrolled in the vision plan through the UnitedHealthcare Voluntary Vision Program or are looking to enroll, you will benefit from a 15 percent reduction in premiums. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the lower rates.
