Announcements for Pennsylvania Hospital

UPHS Annual Benefits Open Enrollment April 20-May 3

Mark your calendars–this year’s UPHS Benefits Open Enrollment period runs from April 20 through May 3.

This year, enrollment is passive.

In previous benefit years, participants were defaulted to the higher tobacco-user rate. This year, your current elections will automatically rollover to next year if you do not make any changes. The only exception to this is the Flexible Spending Account–employees must actively enroll/re-enroll in the FSA for FY16.

Note for Chester County Hospital employees:   As this is the first year enrolling through our electronic system, we strongly encourage you to log on and confirm that the elections you have been defaulted into are the ones you want, or make the necessary changes to ensure your coverage for July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016 fits your needs.
