Open Enrollment via UCPath is here!

Open Enrollment has begun! Through 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 20, you can enroll on UCPath — just choose your location from the dropdown on the Open Enrollment website.

Highlights of this year’s Open Enrollment include low cost increases for most of UC’s medical plans and a few important changes, including new benefits eligibility rules for domestic partners, changes for Health Net Blue & Gold and new voluntary pet insurance. Make sure to read your Open Enrollment booklet and visit the website to learn all about your choices for this year.

Important reminders

Even if you’re happy with your benefits and don’t plan to make a change, make time for a few important steps:

  • Enroll or re-enroll in a flexible spending account (FSA). Your other benefits will continue if you don’t take action, but you must re-enroll each year to continue your FSA.
  • Review all of your plan options to make sure you’re still enrolled in the best benefits for you and your family.
  • While you’re signed in to UCPath, make sure your personal information is up-to-date and complete.

The day after you’ve enrolled, you can sign in to UCPath to see your changes. Just go to Benefits > Benefits Summary and change the date to 1/1/2019 to see your 2019 benefits choices.
