Annual enrollment set for July 16-27

Benefits Enrollment 2012: Teresa Phillips and Victoria Zamora, UNT Business Service Center.Annual Enrollment for employee insurance plans under the Employee Retirement System of Texas (ERS) begins July 16 and ends July 27.

UNT employees will have a two-week enrollment phase during this time to make benefit changes for Plan Year 2013. During July, ERS should send employees a Personal Benefits Enrollment Statement and information about Annual Enrollment benefit choices.

Employees will need to sign-in to their online ERS account to make needed benefit changes for the next plan year, and can do this only during the two-week Annual Enrollment phase.

Employees can make the following changes during Annual Enrollment:

  • Enroll in HealthSelect.
  • Select the Opt-Out Credit option with comparable health coverage.
  • Enroll in or change to one of the two dental plans offered.
  • Enroll in Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance.
  • Drop employee and/or dependent coverage.
  • Add or apply for dependent coverage.
  • Apply for Short-term Disability and Long-term Disability, Dependent Term Life Insurance, or Optional Term Life Insurance (EOI is required for these benefits.)
  • Drop, enroll in or change TexFlex elections.

ERS will host a series of Annual Enrollment fairs and live webinars across Texas through July 13.

Effective Sept. 1, BlueCross/BlueShield will no longer be the third-party administrator for the HealthSelect medical insurance plan.  The new administrator will be United Healthcare

All employees who are enrolled in medical insurance will receive new insurance cards. 

Caremark will continue to be the third-party administrator for prescription drugs.

UNT System employees are encouraged to visit the Business Service Center Annual Enrollment website.
