Open Enrollment highlights for UCOP

You’ll enroll for benefits online on the UCPath portal again this year — look for the “UCOP employees” link on the Open Enrollment website. Here are a few highlights:

  • Continued low costs — Most employees will see medical plan premium increases of less than $10 a month across all salary and coverage levels.
  • Changes for 2018 — See UCnet for details about a new pharmacy benefits administrator for UC’s preferred provider organization (PPO) plans and a few other changes that may affect you.
  • Ways to manage your costs and stay well — Your Open Enrollment booklet highlights suggestions for lowering your tax bill, choosing the right care, and making the most of your plan’s free preventive care and wellness offerings.

    Maybe most employees are having premium increases $10 or less, but for UC Care, it’s going up 10%! I’m outraged.
