Health benefits

Health care coverage is one of the most important benefits the university offers you. It helps pay for your medical, dental, and vision care, as well as your prescriptions. Other benefit offerings provide coverage for other medical situations (including disability); life insurance and accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance protects your family as well. And consider taking advantage of a health care flexible spending account to defray medical-related costs. All programs are linked below – note that some apply only to particular employee groups, as indicated.
