GA Health Care Open Enrollment


Graduate Assistants, ELIGIBLE Graduate Interns, AND ELIGIBLE Graduate Fellows who are currently enrolled in the Connecticut Partnership Plan

Open Enrollment (August 1 – August 31) allows continuing Graduate Assistants, eligible Graduate Interns, and eligible Graduate Fellows to make changes to their existing medical and dental plan elections, including making changes for their eligible dependents, without providing proof of a qualifying life event. Elections or changes made during Open Enrollment are effective September 1, 2020. Any member adding a dependent to their insurance is required to provide proof relationship documentation, such as a marriage certificate for a spouse or a long-form birth certificate for a child.

Please note: After August 31, 2020, there will not be an opportunity to make changes to your insurance elections without a verified qualifying life event.

Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns, and Graduate Fellows who have not received confirmation of continuation for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and wish to make a change should do so now in the event they are continued.* If you have received confirmation of an appointment continuation from your employing department and do not wish to make any changes, you are not required to take any action to continue your existing coverage.

Open Enrollment information, including FAQs and rates, is available on the Human Resources website.

Examples of qualified status changes include birth/adoption of a child, marriage, divorce, and loss of coverage. If you have questions, contact Human Resources to verify if your life event would qualify to make changes to your coverage.
