2015 Open Enrollment-Human Resources - Carnegie Mellon University

2015 Open Enrollment is Monday, November 3 - Monday, November 17, 2014.


Review Your Options


During Open Enrollment

Log into HR Connection starting on November 3rd to review your current elections and enroll in benefits for 2015. Complete Open Enrollment before the end of the enrollment period on Monday, November 17 at 5:00 p.m. (eastern time). Your elections become effective on January 1, 2015 and remain in effect for the entire year. After the enrollment period, you cannot change your benefit elections unless you experience a qualifying status change.

If you do not actively enroll using HR Connection, most of your 2014 benefits will roll over into 2015, if available. New rates and plan features will apply.

Contributions to the Health Care Flexible Spending Account and Dependent Care Reimbursement Account will not roll over automatically. You must re-enroll in these accounts each year to continue participation.


Important to Note

The University will continue to offer plan options with Highmark, UPMC, and HealthAmerica. Most of the contracts between Highmark and UPMC will end on December 31, 2014. The state of Pennsylvania has enforced a “Consent Decree,” which may protect UPMC in-network access for some Highmark members. More information can be found online at http://stayinformed.pa.gov/. Employees with concerns about network access in 2015 should contact the health plan provider directly.
