SPECIAL REMINDER: OPEN ENROLLMENT
  • Open enrollment closes Tuesday, November 23 at 5 pm.  There are a number of important changes this year, particularly as relate to the Health Net and Anthem Blue Cross medical plans. UPTE recommends that you carefully examine the plan changes in the context of your family’s health needs and your personal finances. Then make the best choice for you. The changes this year could have significant effects on both your monthly costs and your access to providers. Please take the time to review your options and make any changes before the deadline.

  • Your children up to age 26 are now eligible for coverage under your health care plan. But you must enroll them during the open enrollment period.

  • The legal plan is open for enrollment this year.
