Annual UPHS Health Fairs and Open Enrollment Coming in April!

PM@WORK-health-fair2Open Enrollment this year begins on Monday, April 25, and runs through Sunday, May 8. Look for the Annual Open Enrollment newsletter being mailed home to all UPHS employees in early April that will outline the benefit information and changes for the 2016-2017 plan year.

All employees are encouraged to read through the newsletter thoroughly and contact the Benefits Team with any questions by calling 215-615-2675, option #4, or emailing. More information can be found on the HR and You website. Any changes made during Open Enrollment will take effect on July 1, 2016

The annual Health Fairs will be held during the first few weeks of April at several UPHS locations. These fairs allow you to visit with many vendors, be entered into raffles for cool prizes, grab free giveaways, sign up for an upcoming biometric screening, and learn about your medical plan and other benefits as a UPHS employee.
