RE: Annual Health Insurance Open Enrollment Details
The State of Maryland has announced that the annual Health Insurance Open Enrollment period
for the plan year July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 will be conducted from April 26, 2011 to May 26, 2011.
The new plan year premiums are not yet available. Premiums will be provided as soon as they are
made available and will be distributed in a future memorandum, as well as posted on the University
Human Resources website. If you are not making changes to your coverage and you do not intend
to participate in a flexible spending account, you do not need to do anything during the Open
Enrollment period. Your current coverage will roll over to the new plan year.
The following are the important changes for the new plan year:
1. Dependents may be enrolled on your health insurance, dental, and prescription drug plans
through the end of the month in which they turn 26.
