Open Enrollment Key Factors 

Active Open Enrollmentno action1
  • Open Enrollment this year is an “active enrollment.” Each employee must log into HR Connection and either enroll in or decline health, dental, or vision insurance, and flexible spending accounts.
  • In order to have coverage in 2019, employees must respond before Open Enrollment ends on November 2, 2018. Failure to respond will result in no coverage for 2019.
New Health Plan Choice
  • UAH is pleased to offer employees a choice in health plans. We will continue to offer the traditional PPO plan, but employees may also choose to enroll in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Employees who elect to enroll in the HDHP may also open a Health Savings Account (HSA), subject to certain qualifications, or enroll in a Limited Purpose FSA. 
New Pharmacy Benefit Manager

  • New cards from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama will be issued and mailed in December.
