Save the Date: 2018 Healthcare Open Enrollment

Do you know the value of your health insurance?

DeSales is proud to say that it ranks the highest among our partner LVAIC schools in providing the most comprehensive medical benefit plan(s) when comparing medical plan claims coverage and employer contribution towards the monthly premium.

Currently, for an individual only policy under the $500/$1500 deductible medical insurance plan, the University contributes 93% of the monthly cost for the health insurance premium, leaving you to pay only the remaining 7%.

For those of you who carry family coverage under the same deductible plan as above, the University absorbs 89% of this cost, leaving you with only 11% to contribute each month for your entire family.

The value of providing a benefit like this to our employees is immeasurable and the University continues to work hard to maintain its ability to keep costs down for you while maintaining excellent coverage.  We are doing the same right now as we work with our broker and Highmark on next year’s insurance rates.

Recognizing that most employers shift overall healthcare costs to employees through increased deductibles ranging from $1500 – $5000 annually or employee cost share percentages up to 20-30%, our commitment is to manage our plan design and employee cost share impact while balancing the University (and your personal) budget as favorably as possible.

Please join us during the annual open enrollment event for employee benefits to learn effective ways your healthcare choices can make an impact on the overall costs shared between DSU and you.

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 and Wednesday, November 8, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., each day, in the Trexler Room of the University Center, the University benefits broker and representatives from our insurance and retirement plan providers will be present during this two day period to address questions related to our benefit offerings.
