2018 Benefits Enrollment: October 30 - November 10

Benefits Enrollment - Norman Programs

This website covers plan and rates information for OU employees in Norman programs. Employees in HSC programs should go to benefitsenrollment.ouhsc.edu.

1. Before Enrollment

2. During Enrollment

  • Use Employee Self-Service to select your benefits that will be effective January 1, 2018. If you do not wish to make changes during this open enrollment opportunity, your benefits will continue as-is for 2018 with the exception of your Flexible Spending Account elections, Health Savings Account elections, and Short-Term Disability.
  • Add or drop coverage for yourself or your dependents.
  • If you are already enrolled in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)you must re-enroll to continue your FSA in 2018. Use Employee Self-Service to do this.
  • If you are already enrolled in a Health Savings Account (HSA), you must select your contribution levels for 2018. Use Employee Self-Service to do this.
  • If you are already enrolled in Short Term Disability with Aflac, you need to decide whether you will enroll in OU's new Short Term Disability coverage with Lincoln, or continue with Aflac independently (without payroll deduction).

3. After Enrollment

  • Whether or not you take action during the enrollment period, you will receive a Confirmation Statement in Self-Service. If you do make selections, your Confirmation Statement will be online within 72 hours of your enrollment. If you do not take action, your Confirmation Statement will be available in 1-2 weeks after enrollment ends. Either way, you’ll receive an email to let you know it’s there. Printed Confirmation Statements will not be delivered through campus mail. View a sample Confirmation Statement here.
  • Review the statement to be sure benefits are correct.
  • If you have questions after reviewing this confirmation, contact Human Resources by November 17, 2017.
  • If you make changes to life or disability insurance, you may be required to complete additional forms which will be mailed to you after you complete enrollment. Please return them promptly.

Additional Things to Consider

  • Consider reviewing your beneficiary designations with Fidelity for retirement plans and in Employee Self-Service for life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
  • Consider enrolling in ICEdot, a part of OU's emergency preparedness plan. With ICEdot you can store emergency health information for access by emergency personnel at no charge to you.
  • Review the university's new Employee Assistance Program with Cigna. For certain services like counseling, you'll be connected with an in-network, local provider so that your sessions can easily continue if needed.
