Open Enrollment 2018

Loyola's annual Open Enrollment, which includes the Health Days Benefit Fairs, is your opportunity to re-visit your current benefit elections, learn about new and existing benefits, and become informed about changes to our plans.
  • Open Enrollment will take place November 1– 22, 2017.
  • This is your annual opportunity to make changes to your benefits that will take effect January 1, 2018.
What's New For 2018?
  • Employees and covered spouses or legally domiciled adults will be required to participate in a wellness screening and complete the Health Power Assessment in order to receive a $50 per month reduction on their health insurance premium.
    • For full details on this incentive, along with other important updates, please review the Flu Shots and Biometric Screenings information tab below.
  • There will be a tobacco usage premium of $50 per month for tobacco users. However, the premium does not apply to covered spouses, legally domiciled adults, or dependents this year.
    • Several advocacy programs and resources will continue to be available to support smoking cessation—leading to a healthier lifestyle.
  • The spousal premium for medical plan participants will increase from $50 to $100 per month. This means that if your spouse or legally domiciled adult has an option for health insurance coverage elsewhere, and still chooses to enroll in the Loyola Medical Plan, you will incur an additional monthly premium of $100.
  • New Pet Insurance offering through Nationwide – My Pet Protection (MPP)
    • Enhanced program is exclusive and not offered to the general public, and provides one set price regardless of the pet’s age, 90% back on vet bills,  and an average savings of 40% over similar plans. Learn More.
Continued Benefit Incentives in 2018
Moving forward, we are continuing to offer a wellness premium rate reduction incentive to faculty and staff on the University’s medical insurance plan who complete a biometric screening and a health power assessment.

How to Receive a Reduced Health Insurance Premium

  • Human Resources will verify your completion of the Biometric Screening requirements and Health Power Assessment with HMI, and your monthly premium will be decreased to reflect the wellness rate for the the 2018 calendar year.
