In addition to health, dental and vision benefits, UAB employees also will have the option to select insurance to cover accidents and identity theft and/ or participate in a pet-care discount program during open enrollment.

Nationwide, the cost of health care is rising, and UAB is working to balance the impact of these costs on our employees and the organization. Here are some things you can do to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.

Eligible employees may choose among four health plans plus dental and vision benefits during the annual open enrollment Oct. 26-Nov. 12. Medical premium assistance — based on household income — will expand to include more eligible employees.
