The annual benefits open enrollment is under way, and NAU employees may make changes to current benefit selections for medical, dental, vision, short-term disability and life insurance. Any changes to benefits coverage must be made by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18., and will take effect Jan. 1.
No action is needed from employees who want to continue with current benefit selections. Employees wishing to continue health or dependent care flexible spending accounts must participate in open enrollment to maintain coverage for next year.
New employees who began working for the university on or after Sept. 14 may not participate in open enrollment due to the 90-day waiting period for benefits coverage to begin.
The university announced changes to its health care offerings in August due to budget constraints including increases in health care premiums and the shifting of vision care coverage to AVESIS. The announcement is available here.
