The Health Insurance Open Enrollment for State of Connecticut employees is underway and will end on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.  Any changes you make during open enrollment will be effective October 1, 2020.

There are several important updates this year:

Oxford HMO Select Anthem State BlueCare POE
Oxford Freedom Select POS Anthem State BlueCare POS


  • There is a new plan option – Anthem BlueCare Prime Plus POS Plan.
  • There is a new centralized benefits website, https://carecompass.ct.gov/
  • There is a new Health Navigator toolavailable via telephone, web, and online messenger chat; this tool is designed to help anyone on the state plan navigate their health benefits, including finding doctors/facilities, answering questions about benefits, and troubleshooting problems.

During open enrollment, you may change medical and/or dental plans, add or drop coverage for your eligible family members, or enroll if you previously waived coverage. You may also enroll in the Health Enhancement Program (HEP), if you have previously waived enrollment.

Information on plan offerings and changes for the upcoming year is available on the Care Compass website – https://carecompass.ct.gov/openenrollment/.

Employees who want to make changes to their benefit plans during this open enrollment period may directly enter changes to their benefit plans in Core-CT through September 18th.  Alternately, employees may contact Human Resources at benefits@uconn.edu to request a personalized enrollment form through September 30, 2020.  If a dependent is being added to insurance, a copy of supporting documentation (i.e. marriage license, long form birth certificate, etc.) is required.

The UConn Open Enrollment Fair will be held virtually on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 from 10am – 11am via the following link – Virtual Enrollment Fair.
