Why does UC health insurance cost so much?
It’s no secret that medical insurance keeps getting more expensive. UC’s systemwide Human Resources leaders work hard each year to negotiate the lowest rates possible while ensuring that employees have a range of comprehensive health care plans from which to choose.
With rates and plan changes still under negotiations for 2012, Our University editor Anne Wolf sat down with Mark Esteban, director of health and welfare program design, to talk about the rising cost of medical insurance and how UC is working to keep high-quality medical insurance affordable for UC and its employees.
UC’s annual Open Enrollment period will begin October 31 and run through November 22. This is your opportunity to change medical plans, add or de-enroll family members and generally review your UC benefits. Keep an eye out for more announcements about Open Enrollment in the coming weeks.
