2019 Health Care Premium Comparison

Both health plans are administered by Aetna. Premiums are based on your annual base salary (Faculty and Staff, as of October 31, 2018; Technical Service as of September 30, 2018). Your 2019 premium contribution amount is effective January 1, 2019, and will remain constant for the entire year, regardless of salary increases or decreases throughout the year. Also, appointments of irregular duration will be adjusted as deemed appropriate when the appointment is updated.

The 2019 rate is reflected in the Benefits Open Enrollment message, located in your Workday Inbox, which you will see when you are making elections for next year. The premiums shown below are examples based on the exact salaries shown. Your premiums will be based on your specific annual base salary.
