Open Enrollment Deadline: April 23

Please keep in mind that the deadline to make Open Enrollment changes is this Friday, April 23.  The online enrollment site (www.pennbenefits.upenn.edu) is available 24 hours a day, closing at midnight on Friday.

There are several changes that will take effect with the start of the new plan year (July 1, 2004), so you should make sure you are aware of how they may affect your coverage. Changes will affect prescription drug coverage for all medical plans, mental health coverage for the UPHS POS and PENNCare/Personal Choice medical plans, dental coverage under the Penn Faculty Practice dental plan, and eligible expenses under the Health Care Pre-Tax Expense Account (this change is in effect already). Details on these changes are in your personalized enrollment kit as well as on the Human Resources website (www.hr.upenn.edu/news).  

If you do not make any changes to your benefits by April 23, you will retain your current coverage (including your current Pre-Tax Expense Account contributions). Remember that if you are covering a dependent child between the ages of 19 and 23, you must certify his/her status as a full-time college student during Open Enrollment, or that dependent will not be covered under your plans as of July 1, 2004.

Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity to review and make changes to your benefits for the coming plan year. Even if you decide not to make any changes, you may still want to make the election to stop receiving paper enrollment guides every year (beginning July 1, you will be able to access this information online). Use the online enrollment site at www.pennbenefits.upenn.edu to make this election in addition to making changes to your coverage.

If you have any questions, the Penn Benefits Center is available to assist you.  Call 1-888-PENNBEN (1-888-736-6236) from 8 a.m.6 p.m., Monday-Friday.
