2021 Benefits Enrollment Ended November 6

This website covers plan and rate information for OU employees in Norman and Health Sciences Center (HSC) programs. Open Enrollment was the same schedule for all campuses this year: October 26 - November 6.

The plan design for medical insurance for 2021 is the same for all three campuses. Please be sure to review the Benefits Highlights flyer by using the Norman or HSC program links on the right.

There are a number of changes to 2021's insurance plans. To help you get acquainted with the new providers and plan features, insurance plan flyers are located at the bottom of this page.

If you do not make changes to your benefits, you will automatically be enrolled in the same plan as 2020, with the exception of supplemental life, spousal life, and any Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) plan in which you are enrolled. HSA and FSA plans elections must be completed each year. In addition, you may review 2020 benefits by using Employee Self-Service.

1. Before Enrollment

2. During Enrollment, October 26 - November 6

  • Use Employee Self-Service to select your benefits that will be effective January 1, 2021. If you do not wish to make changes during this open enrollment opportunity, your benefits will continue as-is for 2021 with the exception of your Flexible Spending Account elections and Health Savings Account elections.

  • 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 2021. 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 2021. Use Employee Self-Service to do this.

  • Choose if you would like to be enrolled in Short Term Disability Long Term Disability or any other voluntary insurance plans.

  • Review your beneficiary information. Go to Employee Self-Service, go to Self-Service > Benefits > Dependent/Beneficiary Info. There, you will be able to review whom you have designated as beneficiaries and verify their information is up-to-date.

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 16, 2020.
  • 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.
  • Review the university's Employee Assistance Program with Magellan. For certain services like counseling, you'll be connected with an in-network, local provider so that your sessions can easily continue if needed.
