All fully benefits-eligible faculty and staff will be required to make an active plan selection during October’s Open Enrollment for 2023 benefits coverage.
|Benefit||If NO action taken:|
|Health Plan||· If you do not make a plan selection, you will be placed in the Choice CDHP at the same tier (Employee only, Employee + Child(ren), Employee + Spouse, Employee +Family) you have now.
· You will miss out on the $20/month credit toward health care premiums if you do not complete the attestation that you and your covered family members are tobacco-free.
· You will pay a $100/month spousal fee if your spouse is on the Vanderbilt Health Plan and has access to health insurance through their employer. If your spouse does not have access to another employer’s health plan, or works for Vanderbilt University, you must complete this attestation every year to avoid the fee.
|Dental Plan||You will have the same coverage and tier you had in place for 2022.|
|Vision Plan||You will have the same coverage and tier you had in place for 2022.|
|No pre-tax money can be deposited into your health care and/or dependent care flexible spending accounts unless you enroll each year.|
|Accidental Death & Dismemberment||You will have the same coverage and tier you had in place for 2022.|
