Graduate Assistant Healthcare: Connecticut Partnership Plan 2017 Healthcare Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is the time of year when continuing Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns and Graduate Fellows are able to make changes to their existing medical and dental plan elections, including making changes for their eligible dependents, without a qualifying life event. Elections or changes made during Open Enrollment are effective September 1, 2017. As a reminder, any member adding a dependent to their insurance is also required to provide proof of the relationship, such as a marriage certificate for a spouse or a long form birth certificate for a child.

Please note: There will not be an opportunity to make changes to your insurance elections after May 15, 2017, without a verified qualifying life event. Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns and Graduate Fellows who have not received confirmation of continuation for the 2017-2018 Academic Year and wish to make a change should do so now in the event they are continued.* If you have received confirmation of an appointment continuation and you do not wish to make any changes, you are not required to take any action to continue your existing coverage.

This year, the Department of Human Resources in collaboration with colleagues from the Core-CT/HCM project is piloting a new self-service functionality, E-Benefits for Open Enrollment. If you would like to participate in using the new E-Benefits On-Line Open Enrollment, please join us at the HCM Support Labs in Wilbur Cross on:

4/25/17 or 4/27/17 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
5/3/17 or 5/5/17 from 10:00 am to 12 Noon

Staff will be on-site at these lab sessions to assist Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns & Graduate Fellows with making open enrollment changes directly in the new E-Benefits system.

For questions regarding Open Enrollment or the E-Benefits support labs, please contact the Benefits and HR Services Unit of the Department of Human Resources at or by telephone at 860-486-3034.

*Continuation of employment does NOT qualify as a life event status change to make elections/changes to your coverage. Examples of qualified status changes include birth of a child/adoption, marriage, divorce, and loss of coverage. If you have questions, please contact Human Resources to verify if your life event would qualify to make changes to your coverage.
