Benefits Open Enrollment

The Open Enrollment period closed on May 4, 2022. If you have an issue please email benefits@ohio.edu.

Open Enrollment is the one time each year you can enroll or make changes in your healthcare benefits. Otherwise, changes may only be made if a qualifying family status change has occurred. This years' Benefits Open Enrollment period was April 11, 2022 through May 4, 2022. Any enrollment changes made during the enrollment period are effective July 1, 2022.

Individual emails will be sent in groups throughout the afternoon of April 11th to all benefits eligible faculty and staff with more information and further instructions. During Open Enrollment you can make changes to your Medical, Dental and Life coverages and re-enroll/enroll in a Flexible Spending Account for the next plan year.

If you do not want to make any changes to your health, dental, vision, life, or disability insurance plans you do not need to take any action.  However, if you want to participate in a Flexible Spending Account you must log in and make that election each year.

Life Insurance

We ask that all benefits eligible employees update their life insurance beneficiary each year during the Open Enrollment period.

A beneficiary can be any individual(s). Please note: you may also name trusts, estates or other non-individuals but these, as well as individuals in which you do not have a social security number will need to be documented on a paper beneficiary form.

You may increase your supplemental life coverage by $20,000 without completing the Evidence of Insurability (EOI) process.  After you reach $200,000 in total coverage Evidence of Insurability (EOI) is required for any increase. Visit the Life Insurance for further details.
